NBC News Reports on Pharmacogenomics
0 August 11, 2017

This week, NBC News shared the story of Sarah Ellis who spent years trying different medications to treat her depression. Finally, her doctor decided to try pharmacogenetic testing to identify a drug that could work for her. Thanks to that test, the doctor recognized that Ellis was sensitive to many common drugs used to treat depression and prescribed a different drug at a lower dose. The report also describes the Genefolio test, developed by Avera Institute for Human Genetics in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.
