COLUMBIA, Mo., June 13, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- We all are familiar with DNA testing to determine who you are and where you came from. Now there is a powerful new use for DNA testing. It is a revolutionary new laboratory report to determine if you are getting the right medications and the right dose, based on your DNA and other personal factors, for a real personalized approach to managing patient medications.
The MedTrait laboratory report combines drug management tools with advanced pharmacogenetic (PGx) technology to assist personalized prescribing decisions. Traditional trial and error prescribing methods often lead to unpleasant side effects and expensive medications that simply do not work.
MedTrait solves this problem by analyzing each person's unique DNA, their individual drug risk, multiple drug interactions and lifestyle considerations to optimize targeted treatment plans at all stages of care and wellness.
MedTrait's simple, powerful reporting platform is available today through qualified channels. Interested parties are encouraged to contact the MedTrait team directly at www.genetrait.com/medtrait, [email protected] or (800) 592-8646.
MedTrait is an advanced laboratory report which bridges the gap between complicated genetic data and actionable clinical guidance. A customized MedTrait report provides quick and reliable personalized treatment guidance as an alternative to the non-targeted methods commonly used today. Current medications can be evaluated within seconds and decisions for future prescribing can continue to be analyzed for life.
MedTrait is powered by a unique PGx knowledge base and interpretation algorithm, developed and maintained by the experts at GeneTrait Laboratories. The platform is designed for comprehensive whole person wellness and lifetime medication management, including complex polypharmacy, mental health and pain management.
MedTrait benefits both the individual and healthcare system as a whole by:
- managing high drug and care costs,
- controlling unwanted side effects,
- decreasing unsuccessful treatments
- and limiting the likelihood of hospitalization.
