Personalized Psyciatric Assay
Patients suffering from psychiatric disorders vary widely in response to specific treatments, and poor response to one treatment does not necessarily imply poor response to others.
For example, among patients who do not benefit from initial treatment with one antidepressant, up to one-half experience significant improvement after switching to an alternative medication, adding a second medication, or adding psychotherapy.
Unfortunately, many patients treated in community practice, especially in primary care, have no chance to benefit from second-line treatments.
Accurate selection of the best initial treatment could have tremendous benefits for people living with psychiatric disorders.
Psychoassay is decision supporting tool based on novel molecular technologies which can guide selection of initial treatment:
Amitriptyline, Aripiprazole, Atomoxetine, Citalopram, Clomipramine, Clozapine, Desipramine, Diazpam, Escitalopram, Fluoxetine, Fluvoxamine, Haploperiodole, Imipramine, Maprotiline, Nefazodone, Nortriptyline, Olanzapine, Paroxetine, Perphenazine, Phenytoin, Risperidone, Sertraline, Thiorizadine, Trazadone, Trimipramine, Venlafaxine, Zolpideme, Zuclopenthixol.
