MedTrait® Original Laboratory-Issued Clinical Report
This genetic test and the reporting of clinical implications associated with specific genetic findings are intended to provide supplemental information to the healthcare provider in identifying the medication therapy best suited to each individual patient. This report does not constitute medical advice. The genetic test and reported clinical implications are intended to complement, not replace, clinical observations and other information used by the healthcare provider in determining the best medication treatment plan for the patient. The patient’s healthcare provider is responsible for providing medical advice and for making clinical decisions about medication management and treatment for the patient. As medical advice must be tailored to the specific circumstances of each patient, the treating healthcare provider has ultimate responsibility, and PTC Laboratories, Inc. and the performing laboratory disclaim any responsibility, for treatment decisions made with regard to the patient including any treatment decisions that take into account the patient’s genotype or other information provided in this report.
Information such as drug interaction dynamics, the impact of lifestyle factors, and duplicate therapy are derived from the Wolters Kluwer Medi-Span drug databases. Wolters Kluwer is solely responsible for the accuracy and completeness of their data. This data will change over time as new medications enter the market and current drug information is updated. While we believe that this report is based on comprehensive current scientific information, it is possible that not all relevant published scientific information has been included in this report and PTC Laboratories, Inc. and the performing laboratory disclaim responsibility for any omissions.
The individual alerts that are taken into consideration in the overall alert score include drug interactions for adverse drug reactions (0-5) and reduced efficacy (0-5), inherent drug risk of the target medication (0-5), and genetic interactions for adverse drug reactions (0-5) and non-efficacy (0-5). Individual alerts are rated on a scale of 0-5, where 0 represents no identified ADRs or efficacy issues and 5 equals some risk of serious injury or death. There is a maximum combined alert score of 25. The inherent drug risk of the target medication alone is established based on a number of factors including the frequency of monitoring necessary for the use of each medication. While use of required monitoring frequency is one indication of risk, it can sometimes cause the inherent risk to be somewhat overstated or understated. Lifestyle factors and duplicate therapy risk are not considered in calculating the overall drug risk, but information currently available about each may be provided in the report.
Potential alternative medications may be listed for medications provided that the total alert score for the alternative medication is less than the current medication. If the information provided to the performing laboratory does not indicate the medical condition that the current medication has been prescribed to address, alternative medications are identified in the same medication class for one of the most common uses of the medication, as denoted in the alternatives section. In some cases it will not be possible to identify a lower adverse drug reaction or non-efficacy medication in the same medication class.
These interpretations, including genetic risk factors and the clinical implications associated with specific genetic findings, are based upon data available in the scientific literature and prescribing information for the relevant drugs. Scientifically supported information about genetics and medications is updated over time. This report provides information based on the data available at the time of reporting, but may change in the future due to new discoveries and research. Apart from the medications and genetic factors considered in this laboratory report, the coadministration of other drugs that inhibit or induce the CYP enzymes, and other genetic and nongenetic factors, may alter the efficacy or toxicity of medications mentioned in this report.
Inclusion of any medication trade name in this report is not an indication of endorsement for a specific manufacturer or formulation of a medication. Commonly used trade names of medications may be provided in this report for reference. The provided names of medications may not represent all possible manufacturers or trade names of the denoted medication. Genetic reference citations and definitions of each risk scale are available upon request and within the MedTrait interactive web app.
MedTrait® User-Updated, Modified Report
Changes from the Original Laboratory-Issued Clinical Report
A user-updated MedTrait report is generated by the MedTrait interactive app at medtrait.app and is not a substitute for the original laboratory-issued report. This version of a MedTrait report can be identified by its “User-Updated” cover sheet outlining changes made to the patient’s medication list with the interactive app before exporting.
The original, laboratory-issued MedTrait report can always be obtained at medtrait.app after logging in with the patient’s data and clicking Report History > Original Report.
