Understanding how MyDNA can help you and your patients.

Calanna Pharmacy is committed to working in partnership with other health care providers to ensure a holistic and effective approach to better outcomes for our customers. That is why we have added pharmacogenomic testing to our suite of professional services.

Pharmacogenomics is the study of how genetic variations influence drug response. These variations can result in either harmful side-effects or lack of therapeutic effect. Pharmacogenomic testing is therefore used to help clinicians prescribe safe and effective medications tailored to their patients' genetic makeup.

Who is doing the tests?

Our pharmacy has appointed myDNA as its partner in providing this new professional service. The myDNA test is a multi-gene pharmacogenomic test that identifies variations in a number of genes affecting the metabolism of up to 50% of commonly prescribed medications.

The parent company was founded in 2007 by Associate Professor Les Sheffield, a clinical geneticist with expertise in the clinical interpretation of molecular genetic tests. myDNA partners with Australian Clinical Labs, which ensures that all genetic tests are processed in a NATA accredited laboratory.

The test covers many commonly prescribed medications including antidepressants, blood thinners, pain relievers, acid reflux medications and high cholesterol medications.

What is the test?

The myDNA test is a non-invasive cheek swab. If the results, interpreted by the myDNA clinical team, suggest that an adjustment of medication or dose may be beneficial (based on international best practice guidelines), the patient will always be directed to you. Our pharmacists will not be making any recommendations for medication change at any stage - this will always be up to you, the prescriber. The aim of our partnership with myDNA and prescribers is to provide a tailored, individualized approach for the prescribing of medicines to help with greater compliance and less medication interactions and adverse events.
