Pediatric Cytochrome P450 Testing
Pediatric Cytochrome P450 Testing is the first drug-gene testing that GGA develops. It mainly tests 20 selected-regular medicines to babies or kids by pediatricians and can offer how kids’ bodies may respond. The testing result could be a useful medication to pediatricians and family-caring guide for parents’ reference.
6 types of medicine:
- Non-Steroidal Anti-inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs)
- Analgesic Antipyretic Drugs
- Antihistamine Drugs
- Antiemetic Drugs
- Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD Drugs)
- Antiepileptic Drugs.
Cytochrome P450 Testing (Drug-gene testing)
Pharmacogenetics or Pharmacogenomics, also called Drug-gene testing, is the study of how genes affect one body's response to medication. Detected variations in Cytochrome P 450 (CYP450) family genes which determine whether a doctor could offer an effective treatment for the patient or whether the patient could have side effects from a specific medication.
The Pediatric Cytochrome P450 Testing could help determine:
- Effective treatment
- Best dose of a medication
- Avoid serious side effects from a medication
