Time is crucial when it comes to treating cancer. Pharmacogenetics helps oncologists and hematologists to predict how patients may metabolize certain drugs and how drugs may react to one another inside the body. If testing reveals that chemotherapy is not ideal, then doctors can move on to other treatment options. In these settings, pharmacogenetics can save lives.
Education is important to us. Because cancer patients’ lives are on the line, we are always available to discuss how pharmacogenetics can help provide the best possible cancer treatment plan. Don’t hesitate to reach out and ask questions.
