  • acid reflux medications
  • Proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) are commonly used to treat acid reflux and other conditions caused by too much acid in the stomach. Learn what your DNA says about how your body might respond to PPIs.

    See sample report

  • anti-platelet medications
  • Millions of people are prescribed a drug called clopidogrel (Plavix┬«) to help prevent blood clots that can cause a heart attack or stroke. See if you have certain genetic variants that could affect how you respond to clopidogrel and other drugs, and share this information with your doctor.

  • cystic fibrosis
  • One of the most common genetic disorders, cystic fibrosis affects up to 1 in 3,000 newborns. Find out if you carry a genetic variant linked to this condition so that you can plan for the health of your family.
