About the Test


Your response to a specific drug can be affected by inherited genetic variations. Pharmacogenomics (PGx) is the study of how individual patients respond to specific medications based on their genetic make up. Using the latest discoveries in PGx, the AGS Personalized Medicine Test profiles and analyzes your unique genetic characteristics in terms of drug effectiveness and safety. Knowledge of your genetic information can guide you and your physicians to make more precise, personalized and safer medical choices.

An AGS Personalized Medicine Test report is both predictive and preventative to assist your physician in prescribing the correct medication and dosage from the beginning. Ask your physician now if a Personalized Medicine Test from AGS is right for you.

Make Your Medication
Treatment Safer and
More Effective

Have You Ever Wondered?

  • Why some people experience adverse drugs reactions and others do not?
  • Why do you need a review of your current medications when physician prescribing new drugs to you?
  • Why do you have slow or no improvement on your symptoms after trying several type of drugs?
  • Why do you experience some sort of side effects
    eg. Headache with certain medicine and others do not?

The Answer Is In Your Unique Genes.

Your unique genes play a big role in your personal response to medications. We do not all respond to the same medications in the same way. These differences can be linked to variations in genes that encode enzymes involved in each step of drug metabolism. Many medications are metabolized in the body by enzymes, and the rate of drug metabolism can vary significantly from patient to patient.

The Personalized Medicine Test determines your metabolizer status for each medication:

AGS-PMT-icon-1

Ultra-rapid metabolizer

  • Breaks down medication rapidly
  • May not get enough medication at normal doses
  • Medication may not provide any therapeutic benefit
AGS-PMT-Icon-3

Intermediate metabolizer

  • Breaks down medications slowly
  • May have too much medications at normal doses
  • Medication may not provide the expected therapeutic benefit, or side effects may be experienced at normal doses
AGS-PMT-Icon-2

Normal metabolizer

  • Breaks down medications normally
  • Medication provides expected therapeutic benefit
AGS-PMT-Icon-4

Poor metabolizer

  • Breaks down medication very slowly
  • May experience side effects at normal doses
  • May have too much medications at normal doses

Knowing your medication metabolism rate, your physician may decide to increase or reduce the standard dose or even prescribe an alternative medication. The decision about which medication to prescribe may also be influenced by another medication that you are taking to avoid interactions between them. Your physician will be able to select the right dosage helping you reduce the trial and error process, achieve therapeutic results and avoid adverse drug reactions.

Personalizing Your Treatment


Your physician will receive a detailed report indicating how you would respond to 85% of the most prescribed medications from the FDA approved medications.

The report will also identify any drug-to-drug and gene-to-gene interactions from your current medication list. Your physician can use this information as a powerful and important tool to individualize your treatment plan and optimize the efficacy and safety of your prescribed medications.

AGS Personalized Medicine Test examines how your genes affect your response to 190+ FDA-approved medications, from the simplest drugs like aspirin to those that are commonly prescribed for treating:

  • Cardiovascular/heart disease
  • Cancer
  • Chronic pain
  • Pediatric diseases
  • Psychiatric conditions
  • Neurological disorders
  • Gout/hyperuricemia
  • And much more…
