Coriell Life Sciences’ Jeffrey Shaman notes, “Pharmacogenomics is not a silver bullet. It’s a helping hand for doctors to help zero in on treatment options. We’re now leveraging PGx to offer a variety of COVID-related services, including data interpretation and reporting services for SARS-CoV-2 detection and precision prescribing for COVID-19 treatment through genetics. CLS’ medication safety pharmacogenomics report delivers measurable benefits, including potentially quicker recovery, reduced healthcare costs, and simplified decision-making.”
