Pharmacogenetics of prostate cancer treatment

The ONCOPROSTApgx profile is indicated for patients who will be treated with oncology drugs for prostate cancer, or patients who are already on treatment. It includes the most widely used drugs approved by the US National Cancer Institute.
 
The profile includes 24 drugs, including, among others, docetaxel, flutamide and buserelin, as well as the cannabinoid compounds CBD and THC (cannabidiol and tetrahydrocannabinol) used for the treatment of pain.
 
The objective is a personalized therapy based on genetics, with the aim of obtaining greater efficacy and fewer adverse effects or therapeutic failures.
 
Genetic variants related mainly to the elimination of these drugs are analysed. In the case of lower elimination, adverse effects may occur due to toxicities; if elimination is higher, it may lead to therapeutic failure.
 
By performing this profile, it is possible to know whether the treatment will produce the expected effect, whether it is preferable to modify the dose, or to replace the drug with alternatives. 
 
Occasionally, patients treated with nilutamide may be found to have elevated plasma concentrations, increasing the risk of toxicity. This is mainly due to the presence of a polymorphism in one of the genes involved in the activation of this drug.
 
 
Interpretation of the polytherapy report  
 
In addition to knowing the genetics, which is essential for the efficacy of the treatment, it is essential to know the interactions caused by the combined use of medication, nutritional supplements and the patient's lifestyle.
 
One example is the co-administration of docetaxel with regular intake of grapefruit juice, as this reduces the elimination of docetaxel and consequently increases the risk of suffering adverse effects.
 
All these possible interactions are taken into account in the g-Nomic® Pharmacogenetics interpretation software, thus completing the correct prescription of drugs.
