Psychiatric Disorders

Genomind Professional PGx Express FULL Mental Health Report™ is intended to provide genetic information to healthcare professionals which may aid in the selection of appropriate medications for individuals with mental illness and other brain disorders. This 24 gene report is designed to be adjunctive to a complete patient assessment, including but not limited to proper diagnosis, clinical history, assessment of concomitant co-morbidities and medications, family history, and other factors. Additional information may be found by consulting the Prescribing Information of various FDA-approved medications, or other relevant resources such as the FDA’s Table of Pharmacogenomic Biomarkers in Drug Labeling.

Genes We Analyze

Each report looks at both Pharmacodynamic and Pharmacokinetic .

Pharmacodynamic: this refers to the effect that a drug has on your body. For example, a drug might bind to a certain receptor in your brain, or you might make a certain protein that increases your risk of a drug induced rash.  These are all pharmacodynamic parameters.

Pharmacokinetic: this refers to the effect that your body has on a drug.  For example, your body can absorb and metabolize certain drugs at different speeds which can help personalize medication dosage.  These speeds are different between people and are known as pharmacokinetic parameters.

Gene Variations Summary

The gene variations report provides the patient genotype for each of the gene variants on our panel. The color coded genotype reflects the patients inherited alleles, or variants, at a particular location within the tested gene. The report also provides specific therapeutic guidance related to certain medications, or non-drug options like exercise  or TMS

Gene Drug Interaction Summary

Each patient report includes a gene-drug interaction summary. The gene-drug interaction summary provides information about how the patient’s genetic profile interacts with medications commonly used in psychiatry. This summary table lists medications in alphabetical order by generic name and drug class.

Diagnosis-Specific Summary

Diagnosis-specific Summary Pages will provide a visual plot of drugs and augmentation strategies for a particular condition. The medication position will shift left or right based on known gene-drug interactions.

  • Alert/Caution: Drugs will shift to the left if a patient has genetic variations that may reduce efficacy, increase likelihood of side effects or alter drug metabolism/absorption.
  • Standard Options: Drugs that are not shifted indicate that there are no significant gene-drug interactions for the patient.
  • PGx Guided Options: Drugs will be shifted to the right if the patient has genetic variations that may increase likelihood of efficacy or tolerability.
