Treatment resistance, high relapse rates and adverse side-effects of medications are common problems in psychiatry which many clinicians will be familiar with. Up to 50% of patients with depression will not respond to first-line therapies while relapse rates of patients with bipolar disorder reach up to 70%.
Moreover, 75% of patients with schizophrenia discontinue medication within 18 months due to intolerable side-effects.
Pharmacogenetics is a powerful tool that uses a person’s genetic makeup to predict their response to treatment, and therefore determine which medication (and which dosage) is the optimal choice.
The test is a non-invasive, saliva-based test that analyses 18 key genes which significantly affect response to a wide array of psychiatric medications. Each analysis includes a comprehensive patient report.
Studies have shown clinically measurable improvement in up to 91% of patients previously labelled as treatment-resistant, with significant reductions in medication side-effects, enhanced quality of life and decreased healthcare costs. The test is an effective approach that guides clinicians to tailor treatment to the individual, to achieve improved patient outcomes in a shorter timeframe.
Some conditions the analysis can be used for:
Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.
A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!
Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
