Our Mission

Your DNA encodes how your body will absorb, metabolize, and transport medications. Currently treatment is applied on a “one-size fits all” approach; however, with an in depth review of your genetic profile, treatment will be tailored to you.

Genetic Foresight provides a full interpretation explaining clearly how your body will respond to different types of medications. This analysis effectively minimizes adverse side effects from medications, reduces time to positive therapeutic response, and lessens healthcare costs for you.

We offer a single genetic test that provides personalized prescription information and recommendations for many different medication areas, including psychiatric, cardiovascular, cancer, diabetes, and various other medications.




Psychiatry

Getting the right medication the first time for a patient is our priority.


We report on psychiatric medications covering disorders including:

  • Anxiety
  • Bipolar Disorder
  • Depression
  • Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
  • Panic Disorder
  • Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
  • Schizophrenia

Oncology

Oncologists have a variety of anticancer agents to choose from in chemotherapy; however, the narrow therapeutic index--a small dosage window to avoid adverse events or therapeutic failure--of cancer medication makes precision medicine crucial in achieving recovery.


Chemotherapies

Personalizing treatment helps patients avoid the unpredictable efficacy, low response rates, and dangerous toxicity that are the hallmarks of chemotherapies.

Cardiology

With the wide array of treatment options available to choose from for cardiovascular disorders, personalizing treatment to a patient plays a large role in overall therapeutic response. Cardiovascular medications are often involved in preventing strokes, heart attacks, arrhythmias, and many other very serious medical complications, making precise and accurate therapy vital to a patient’s health.

We provide clinical-decision support for cardiovascular medication used for disorders including: ​

  • Angina
  • Arrhymthias
  • Atherosclerosis
  • Hypertension
  • High and Low Blood Pressure
  • High Cholesterol

Pain

Many painkillers are metabolized by enzymes that are coded for in the CYP2D6 gene. Therefore, a mutation in this gene can result in the effectiveness of many medications being compromised.

For example, some patients have a specific mutation that results in faster metabolic activity for the painkiller codeine. This vastly increases the risk of codeine being toxic for this patient, possibly leading to hospitalization or even fatality.
