The company will provide counseling in multiple languages and connect people to local healthcare resources so they can use the genetic information they've learned in their own care. 

Industry players, faced with vague communications from the agency, scramble to decipher regulatory expectations and criticize the agency for trying to control PGx knowledge.

While the FDA has expressed concerns about PGx testing, CEO Erik Hennings said the company has taken measures to limit the risk of consumer harm.

The partners are working under NIAAA grants to identify genetic markers to help predict response to the drug acamprosate, which is used as a treatment for alcoholism.

Tabula Rasa Healthcare will deliver pharmacogenomics test results from CQuentia's lab, while CQuentia will supply analytics and biometric wearables.

CPIC wants to issue guidelines for non-actionable genes, standardize PGx terms, and work with groups like ClinGen and ClinVar to expand use of its guidelines.

Harvard and Brigham and Women's Hospital researchers will help guide Sanford in using and interpreting data collected through its Sanford Chip pharmacogenomic test.

The trials are part of the second phase of the Implementing Genomics in Practice program, which is slated to receive $42 million in funding over 5 years.

With 10,000 of Mayo's patients now sequenced for 77 genes, a subset of this information is being used to inform care while the bulk of the data is spurring research projects.

Under the partnership, RxGenomix and CLS will offer a pharmacogenomics training, implementation, and management package to healthcare providers.
