Genetic Testing Explodes after Supreme Court Patent Decision

operidol, Abilify, and Celexa.  Such tests are very rarely performed before a drug is prescribed, but they offer distinct advantages.  They overcome most doctors' insufficient understanding of, and even fear of, genetics and genetic testing." 

Genome Liberty will work directly with consumers as well as doctors to offer a Gene-Drug Interaction Test. Here is how the test works:

  • A customer (1) orders the test on the Genome Liberty website; (2) receives a saliva-collection kit; (3) provides a saliva sample; and (4) mails the sample to Genome Liberty's certified medical lab, which extracts the DNA and tests it for the genetic variants corresponding to drug responses.
  • Customers receive a full report within two weeks to bring to their physician, outlining the medications that are recommended and discouraged, based upon an individual's specific genetic profile.

The test costs $99, provides information for a lifetime, and covers dozens of frequently prescribed drugs. It also looks for a condition known as Factor V Leiden that can cause dangerous blood clots when women who have this condition take estrogen, either for birth-control or hormone replacement.  Many of these tests are encouraged by the FDA on the drug label, but they are not widely requested.

"The test provides only immediately useful information," Mason said.  "Many people are wary of having a genetic test performed because they do not want results that will scare them.  Some people do not want to be told that they are at high risk for diseases that are currently untreatable. Genome Liberty's primary focus is on actionable genetic information to help people make smart medical choices."

Genome Liberty's co-founders are established leaders in genetics and the understanding the human genome. Dr. Christopher Mason is a faculty member of the Weill Cornell M
