Drug metabolism affects your health and well-being:
• 90% of all FDA-approved drugs are metabolized by one or more of the CYP450 enzymes
• DNA DrugMap™ tests identify genetic variations that predict changes in enzyme activity
• Health professionals can use this information to personalize care
• Brit Phillips has access to genetic counselors and physicians who are on-call to help
