Why are some drugs not included on your report? If a drug is not included on your report, does that mean it will work well for me?

If a medication is NOT included in our report, it is because no gene variants have yet been identified that are known to affect individual responses to that particular drug. In some cases, there may only be a single study that has shown a relationship between a gene and response to a drug, but the evidence is not yet strong enough to be relied upon and therefore we do not include it in our report.

The science of pharmacogenetics is evolving rapidly, and as such, new gene-drug relationships may be discovered in the future as more studies are being done. Inagene updates online reports automatically every 6 months to reflect new data and recommendations that have become available. Your DNA results are for life (you always have the same gene variants throughout your life – this does not change over time). As new data becomes available regarding how these gene variants impact responses to different medications, your report will automatically be updated free of charge.
