A pharmacogenetic test is a type of genetic test that analyzes specific genes in your DNA to predict how you may respond to certain medications. The test examines variants in genes that produce enzymes, receptors, and proteins involved in the metabolism and action of drugs. The goal is to optimize drug efficacy while minimizing the risk of adverse effects and drug interactions.
