Pharmacogenomic Test for Drugs Related to Skin Care

This PGx test uses a simple cheek swab to test a combination of genes related to the metabolism of drugs used in the treatment of skin and dermatology related problems.

If you are about to use Aczone - Dapsone or have been using it with no noticeable effect, or experiencing redness or bluish skin, you should get tested. Individuals with alterations in the CYB5R3 gene can experience cyanosis (blue skin disorder) after using Aczone. Individuals with G6PD enzyme deficiency are more prone to hemolysis. You can Oder G6PD test separately.

If you are currently taking one of the following drugs, FDA recommends getting tested to determine if you have a gene mutation that could render a drug ineffective, cause unwanted side effects or result into a life-threatening event. Based on this information, your healthcare provider can suggest a different drug that can be safer and more effective.
