Date:8/21/2012

SAN DIEGO, Aug. 21, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Millennium Laboratories, the leading research-based clinical diagnostic company dedicated to improving the lives of people suffering from pain, announced today that it has initiated a first-of-its-kind, large-scale prospective clinical outcomes study of its pharmacogenetic test. The study, which will encompass more than 30 practice sites nationally, is designed to evaluate the relationship between CYP genotype, as determined by Millennium Pharmacogenetic Testing (PGT), and clinical outcomes including level of analgesia, functional status, and clinically significant opioid-related adverse events. The study will also seek to assess the benefit to prescribers of pharmacogenetic information arising from Millennium PGT, and characterize any corresponding changes in prescribing patterns.
