New Horizons selected for federal study
New Horizons of the Treasure Coast Inc. has been chosen by Companion DX and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Medicare to be a part of a 3 year DNA study. The study will consider the new era of patient-specific medicine.
Pharmacogenomics testing helps to identify how certain genes affect the way individuals respond to medications based on their genetics. While standard doses of most medicines work well for most people, some medicines don’t work at all in certain people or cause annoying and sometimes dangerous side effects. The testing can pre-determine these factors very accurately.
“Helping our clients with their medication regimen without side effects and discomfort is an essential piece in their achieving a good quality of life on their road to recovery. The results of this study will help pinpoint the best drug for the individual” said Dr. Lalit Chaube, medical director at New Horizons.
A private, non-profit organization established in 1958, New Horizons of the Treasure Coast and Okeechobee delivers accessible behavioral and primary health care services to children, adults and families to achieve mental and physical wellness, thereby improving the quality of life in our community.
