Kailos PGxComplete

Kailos has launched PGxComplete, a comprehensive, full panel, gene-based test that the company is offering for $99 through November 30. The panel tests 20 different classes of medications to reveal how one's body responds to more than 50 types of medications, including antidepressants, opioids, HIV/AIDS treatment, and cancer therapy. The panel uses advanced technology that harnesses DNA sequencing and enables a more holistic view of a person's gene-based medical information, said Kailos in a statement. The company launched its first pharmacogenetics test (the Kailos test, formerly called Praxis) this past June.
