Decode Your DNA: Revolutionizing Medicine with Pharmacogenomics and The Promise of Personalized Treatment

Pharmacogenomics, an emerging science backed by the British Pharmacological Society and the Royal College of Physicians, is set to revolutionize healthcare with a personalized approach to drug prescription. This field aims to adjust prescriptions based on individual genetic codes, promising to reduce adverse reactions and improve treatment effectiveness. The ultimate goal is to make these tests as common as routine check-ups, putting our unique DNA map at the center of healthcare. Epilepsy patient, Jane Burns, lost two-thirds of her skin due to a severe reaction to a drug, which likely could have been avoided if her genetic predisposition was taken into account. Similarly, over 5 million people in the UK receive no relief from codeine due to their genetics. With a cost of just £100, these tests could prevent such adverse reactions and guide the use of 40 of the 100 most prescribed drugs, marking a new age of personalized healthcare.
