GeneSight helps healthcare providers make more precise treatment decisions based on how a patient’s unique genetic makeup affects their individual response to 38 FDA-approved medications for depression, anxiety, posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), bipolar disorder, schizophrenia and other mental health conditions. GeneSight is the only neuropsychiatric combinatorial pharmacogenomic test validated in multiple, peer-reviewed, published clinical studies. GeneSight analyzes over 785,000 permutations of an individual’s genes and available medications, and presents the results in an easy to read, color-coded report available typically within 36 hours after Assurex Health receives a patient’s cheek swab.
