MEDICATION MONITORING

MEDICATION MONITORING

Our medication monitoring program is quality driven and comprehensive. We offer testing of urine and oral fluid to verify a patient’s adherence to prescription medication or their noncompliance for a therapeutic regimen. Our test menu includes all major drug classes.

PHARMACOGENETICS

PHARMACOGENETICS

Pharmacogenetics(PGx) is the study of how genes affect a person’s response to drugs. This relatively new field combines pharmacology (the science of drugs) and genomics (the study of genes and their functions) to develop effective, safe medications and doses that will be tailored to a person’s genetic makeup.

Crestar Labs recognizes the importance for quick and effective treatment for sexually transmitted infections. We provide next-day molecular diagnostic results for suspected genital tract infections for up to 27 microorganisms.

Hereditary Cancer

Hereditary Cancer

Most cancers arise as a result of acquired gene mutations that happen over the course of a person’s lifetime. These genetic alterations may have an external cause, such as exposure to sunlight or tobacco. But gene mutations can also be random events that sometimes happen within a cell, without a clear cause.

Reporting

Crestar partners with Coriell Life Sciences to provide a highly interactive, always up-to-date pharmacogenetics report – a significant departure from the static reports offered by most labs. Coriell’s team of experts continually monitors advances in the field of pharmacogentics and updates its gene-drug guidance accordingly.
Thus, whenever a healthcare provider generates a report for his or her patient – something they can do whenever they wish – that report contains the most current and thoroughly vetted information available.

Coriell’s PGx reporting system comes in three parts:
SafeTRx: a consumer medication safety application for patients, their families, and caregivers
GeneDose: a genetic interpretation report showing how the patient’s genetic profile might influence prescription medicines
GeneDoseLive: a medication regimen modeling tool for physicians to optimize overall treatment plans

Coriell’s pharmacogenetics GeneDose (static) and GeneDose Live (Web-based) reports enable providers to make informed decisions that can be personalized to a patient’s health. The analysis will include lifestyle factors, concomitant medications and medical conditions for a thorough risk-based evaluation and treatment guidance.

Coriell offers an interactive program – known as SafeTRx – for patients to update information as their treatment evolves or as their lifestyle changes. This information can then be shared with their healthcare providers in a manner that encourages conversation about possible changes to the patent’s prescription
medicine regimen.
