Pinnacle Launches PGx

08/04/2014

Pinnacle Labaratory Services, one of the fastest growing urine and saliva toxicology drug testing companies in the US, successfully launched one of the most broad-spectrum pharmacogenetic programs available on the market.

Pinnacle Laboratory Services specializes in pharmacogenetic testing with several different specialized panels such as Pain, Psychiatry, Cardiovascular Risk, Urology, & ADHD. Pharmacogenetic testing is able to identify sources of an individual’s drug response based solely on their genetic makeup. The information is then used to develop a personalized treatment plan. This approach to personalized medicine successfully brings toxicology and pharmacogenetic testing together.

“The unification of toxicology and pharmacogenetic testing allows us to understand firsthand how certain drugs and medications will affect an individual, whether it’s positively or negatively,” said Andrea Trescot, M.D., Medical Director of Pinnacle Laboratory Services. “By allowing physicians to make personalized drug treatment plans for their patients, pharmacogenetic testing can help improve therapeutic benefits of prescribed medications as well as reduce negative side effects.”

Dr. Andrea Trescot travels all over the U.S. and abroad to lecture physicians about the benefits of pharmacogenetic testing and how to utilize this clinical information. Before joining Pinnacle, Dr. Trescot held several notable positions such as past president of the American Society of Interventional Pain Physicians (ASIPP), former professor at the University of Washington in Seattle, and director of the pain fellowship programs at the University of Washington and the University of Florida.

Pinnacle Laboratory Service’s proximity to world class research and medical facilities allows the company to recruit the most talented and experienced employees. In addition, Pinnacle has chosen to invest in the most current laboratory equipment available on the market.
