myDNA pharmacy testing

03 Feb 2016

Chemmart stores throughout Australia are offering a genetic test that may help identify medications and dosing tailored to the individual.

The myDNA test identifies how a person’s genetic makeup influences enzymes and how they affect body metabolism of common medications, potentially helping patients to personalise their approach to medicines, Chemmart says.

The DNA sampling is done via a cheek swab which is sent to a team of expert doctors, pharmacists and scientists and then reported back to the pharmacist for further private
consultation. 

Chemmart executive director Duncan Phillips said the $149 test is available in more than 200 participating pharmacies.
