Asper Pharmacogenetics is a collection of genetic tests targeting drug-gene interactions including metabolic response to medications and predisposition to adverse drug reactions.
Extensive research has been carried out in the past years to determine the relationship between therapeutic drugs and genes. The studies demonstrate the growing importance of genetically guided treatment, especially in the concept of personalized medicine.
Knowledge on genetic aspects determining drug metabolism allows the implementation of genotype-guided prescription and dosing. It can not only improve drug efficacy but also help prevent adverse drug reactions.
