Adverse drug reactions are a leading cause of morbidity and mortality in the United States. Drug metabolism is a process whereby drugs are delivered to the body, distributed, metabolized and then ultimately excreted. As there can be potentially significant differences between patient drug absorption, metabolism and excretion, molecular testing allows a physician to work with a patient's individual phenotype and/or genotype to deliver an optimum pharmaceutical selection and/or dosage.
