True Wellbeing through personalized medicine

CUREGEN is a test by Genessense that assesses your response to more than 45 drugs and drug classes covering 18 genes across, a range of diseases. The test can tell you whether a medication can be effective for you, whether you need different doses than average and whether you are at risk for serious side effects due to altered metabolism of the medication.

ALTERED DRUG METABOLISM IS PREVALENT IN OUR POPULATION

Metabolism

As an example, Asians can be poorer metabolizers of CYP2C19, a prevalent hepatic enzyme that metabolizes at least 10% of all commonly prescribed drugs.

Medicine

Asians also may need different doses of SSRI antidepressants, cancer drugs and many others, for the same reasons.

Hearth Health

This results in reduced activity of drugs like clopidogrel, with Asians being at higher risk of adverse effects from this drug such as heart attack and stroke.

DNA

The adverse events can range from those related to altered drug efficacy to severe skin reactions. Pharmacogenomic testing for this variant can reduce these risks. Read on for more.

The CUREGEN difference

Genessense follows the latest guidelines prescribed by the Clinical Pharmacogenetics Implementation Consortium (CPIC) and PharmGKB covering more than 45 drugs and drug classes.

CUREGEN only looks at drugs for which level of evidence is strong as per established guidelines.

We do not cover any drug that does not have sufficient evidence unlike some of our competitors.

We follow guidelines and recommendations made by

CPIC
PHARMG-KB

To know the drug classes and disease covered under the CUREGEN test

Who should get this test done?

  • Anyone starting or taking a drug that we report on (please refer to complete list of drugs covered on our website)
  • Anyone with known adverse drug reaction(s) due to medications in the past, or there is family history of the same
  • When you feel your treatment (involving one or more of our covered drugs) is not helping you
  • For patients who are on multiple medications
  • Elderly patients taking or starting certain specific medications like blood thinners, opioids, phenytoin, etc., as elderly are more likely to be hospitalized due to these medications*
  • Any health-conscious individual who may be interested in testing pro-actively and keeping the report handy for the future
