PGx Panel for AED (Anti-epileptic drugs)

Genetic testing for epilepsy treatment and reduce side effects (CarbamazepineOxcarbazepinePhenytoinLamotriginePhenobarbital) 

Purpose of Testing

Carrying a specific gene when using epilepsy medication
will be at high risk of developing severe drug allergies

Epilepsy is caused by the abnormal discharge of electrical activity from brain cells, but several medications have been developed to reduce or even control the onset of epilepsy. As medications vary in structure and treatment, constant experimentation may be required to find the right one for you.
However, epilepsy medication is statistically one of the drugs most likely to cause severe drug allergies, and fortunately, now genetic testing is available to prevent this.

PGx-AED (Anti-epileptic drugs) Panel, A single test to determine the risk of allergy to five common epilepsy medications.

 

Product

Assessing associations with adverse effects of antiepileptic drugs (Carbamazepine、Oxcarbazepine、Phenytoin、Lamotrigine、Phenobarbital)

 

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.
