– PERSONALIZED MEDICINE in PSYCHIATRY at MEDANIMA –
The GENOMIND PROFESSIONAL PGX genetic test
You already know that we are constantly dedicated to evolution and have set out to be the best medical center for neuropsychiatric disorders in RomaniaBeyond the effort this entails, we consistently bring in the newest and most advanced technologies, often being among the first in Romania, aimed at improving the care and recovery of individuals with mental disorders and enhancing the quality of medical services provided.
We are proponents of innovation and constantly follow research in the field.
The innovative treatments and genetic tests available at our clinic shorten the treatment period, accelerate the process of improvement and healing of disorders, and are non-invasive.
Personalized medication in psychiatry, through genetic testing, is a worldwide novelty and an approach that Med Anima immediately embraced because we aim to improve the lives of patients with mental conditions. Complex genetic testing is a new international approach and it is used for optimizing treatment in several psychiatric conditions.
Since 2018, Med Anima has already begun using genetic testing in clinical practice.
Finding the right treatment TAKES TIME
Despite the availability of effective treatments for many mental disorders, including mood and anxiety disorders, reaching the best treatment for mental illnesses can take weeks or even months. In these circumstances, patients may become discouraged or interrupt their treatment.
It is estimated that two-thirds of patients with depression will not respond to initial treatment, and more than one-third will become treatment-resistant.
The information obtained through the GENOMIND PROFESSIONAL PGX® genetic test helps create a personalized treatment plan to effectively address the pathology and avoid or minimize side effects. This test is performed using Real-Time PCR TaqMan technology in a CLIA-certified laboratory. The sensitivity and specificity of this test are over 99%.
The Genomind Professional Pgx® test can expedite the path to finding effective treatments
Heterogeneity in medication response observed in patients can be explained by the presence of genetic variants involved in drug absorption, distribution, metabolism, elimination, intensity of action, and intrinsic activity.
The results obtained through this genetic test assist doctors in making decisions when prescribing medications for mental disorders. Sample collection is fast, painless, and non-invasive:
🧬The test is based on a saliva sample collected very simply and painlessly, non-invasively, by your attending physician using a swab from the inside of your cheek.
Genomind Professional Pgx analysis is a genetic test developed to help specialists optimize treatments and choose personalized medications with potential efficacy and safety:
✔️ Enables the correct selection of medication and appropriate dosage for the patient, based on specific genetic variants they possess.
✔️ Helps avoid or minimize adverse effects.
✔️ This test is ideal for patients who show sensitivity or lack of symptom improvement.
✔️ Significantly reduces the treatment period in mental illnesses by identifying the right medications and dosage.
✔️ Identifies variations in 24 key genes relevant to psychiatric treatment. As a result, the therapist will know which treatment will be more effective and how to reduce side effects.
• 9 genes involved in pharmacokinetics
• 15 genes involved in pharmacodynamics (MTHFR, GRIK1, OPRM1, BDNF, ADRA2A, COMT, DRD2, MC4R, 5HT2C, ANK3, CACNA1C, SLC6A4)
Genomind analysis covers a wide range of psychiatric disorders
The genes analyzed with this test are associated with a wide range of psychotropic medications and can contribute to the selection of treatment plans for: depression, anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), bipolar disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), autism, schizophrenia, chronic pain, and substance abuse.
This test optimizes treatment for:
- Patients living with depression, anxiety, OCD, ADHD, bipolar disorder, PTSD, autism, schizophrenia, chronic pain, and substance abuse
- Any patient with suboptimal treatment response: previous treatment trials, poor response, or side effects
- Patients on multiple medications
- Patients with psychiatric and medical comorbidities. Comorbidity refers to the simultaneous presence of multiple conditions in a patient. In the case of anxiety disorders, comorbidity can refer to the simultaneous presence of multiple anxiety disorders (e.g., panic disorder and social phobia) or the simultaneous presence of an anxiety disorder and another disorder (e.g., depression).
- Patients with medication adherence issues
🧬 The test is based on a saliva sample collected very simply and painlessly, non-invasively, by your attending physician using a swab from the inside of your cheek.
Genomind test reports are easy to read and understand
Two types of results are possible:
- A positive or clinically significant genetic result
- A negative or non-clinically significant gene result (normal)
The Genomind test report presents detailed genetic results and treatment implications. The report is easily explained to patients, and the results help specialists optimize treatment.
