Better drug tolerance 

through personalized medication

Every person processes active ingredients differently - a medication that works for a patient may be ineffective for another or have undesirable side effects. this is caused by the body's own drug metabolism, which is influenced by individual genetics. By analyzing your genes, your physician of trust will be able to select the medication that exactly matches your genetic profile. This can prevent over- and underdosing.

Pharmacogenetic test

This special laboratory test can determine how your body breaks down medication. As genetic characteristics do not change over the course of a lifetime, the genetic test is valid for a lifetime.

By adapting the medication to your DNA, a more effective treatment can be achieved. Potential harmful interactions between different medications are also recognized before they occur. This reduces the risk of adverse reactions and complications and secures optimal therapy.

Procedure of the pharmacogenetics test

  1. blood sample taken at the Melittaklinik laboratory
  2. genetic analysis at a certified specialized laboratory in Austria
  3. after approx. 2 weeks - discussion of results with Prof Dr. Markus Paulmichl at the Melittaklinik

After the analysis, the results are made available to you and your treating doctor. This information is the used to determine the medication and dosages that are best suited to your body.
