Purpose of Testing

  • Clopidogrel (Plavix) is an anti-platelet agent. Patients with a history of atherosclerosis or embolism may reduce the incidence of death due to stroke and myocardial infarction. It works by inhibiting platelet agglutination, making arterial blood vessels less prone to thrombosis. It is most commonly used in patients with acute myocardial infarction after placing a cardiac stent.
  • Clopidogrel is a prodrug and does not have antiplatelet activity per se. It needs to be metabolized by enzymes in the liver to the active form before it can have an anti-platelet clotting effect.

What is pharmacogenetic testing

What is「pharmacogenetic」testing?

  • A gene is a “specification” of DNA sequences that carry genetic information passed down from parent to child. This specification helps us understand the risk of disease, unique physical condition, and more importantly, whether you are suitable for a drug, have allergies, need to adjust the dose, and other important information about taking medication.
  • Therefore, pharmacogenetic test results can provide physicians with more reference information to help them give patients the most appropriate medications and doses.
