Determine the right dose using genetic information — bio.logis collaborates with KNMP, the Royal Dutch Pharmacists Association

Based on the KNMP’s (Royal Dutch Pharmacists Association) latest pharmacogenetics insights, the G-Standaard drug database provides dosage recommendations for active ingredients depending on various genotypes. This enables Dutch physicians and patients to always access the most relevant information on the kind and dosage of drugs that will work best in each individual case. This service is now also available to users of the bio.logis Genetic Information Management Suite (GIMS): Laboratories and hospitals can incorporate this information directly in their pharmacogenetics reports. The partners have already signed a license agreement, allowing GIMS to directly retrieve select data from G-Standaard dosage recommendations — regardless of the country where GIMS is being used.

Austrian Article by Franziska Dzugan in "Profil" about adverse drug effects

Sehr viel mehr Menschen sterben an unerwünschten Wirkungen von Medikamenten als im Straßenverkehr. Mit der Zahl der Arzneien, die jemand einnimmt, steigt das Risiko dramatisch. Was aber, wenn selbst die Ärzte nicht weiterwissen?

Article on "Personalized Medicine" in Plattform Life Science

Seit jeher versuchen Mediziner, ihren Patienten die bestmögliche Behandlung zukommen zu lassen. Doch ist der Mensch ein kompliziertes Wesen, will sagen, jeder Mensch reagiert anders auf die ihm verschriebene Dosis an Medikamenten oder Therapien. Ganz ähnlich verhält es sich mit den Krankheiten. Ursache, Verlauf oder Härtegrad hängen von einer Vielzahl von Faktoren ab. Dies bezieht sich nicht nur auf die genetische Ausstattung der Betroffenen, ihr Alter oder ihr Geschlecht. Auch externe Umwelteinflüsse und individuelle Lebensstile haben einen Einfluss. Die Folgen dieser Umstände sind maßgeblich, denn viele konventionell hergestellte Wirkstoffe erzielen längst nicht (mehr) die erhoffte Wirkung oder bringen nicht beabsichtigte Nebenwirkungen.

German hospital Robert-Bosch-Krankenhaus Stuttgart and bio.logis GIM integrate pharmacogenetics into clinical practice—a milestone for personalized medicine

Personalized medicine is on everybody’s lips. For many patients it is a ray of hope because it promises better therapy and treatment results for the individual patient. Taking into account a patient’s genetic make-up is of particular importance here. Stuttgart’s Dr. Margarete Fischer-Bosch institute for clinical pharmacology (IKP) at the Robert-Bosch-Krankenhaus (RBK) is one of the leading pharmacogenetics institutions worldwide and works on how hereditary factors influence drug efficacy. Together with bio.logis GIM, a company based in Frankfurt, RBK will implement a newly developed IT platform (Genetic Information Management Suite, GIMS) and integrate it with its hospital information system using existing interfaces. GIMS enables RBK to automate the translation of its patients’ pharmacogenetic results into clinically exploitable therapy recommendations. For the first time, patients access their personal pharmacogenetic findings via a Web portal and use them for future medical treatment.

Personalized medicine: Medical University of Vienna (MUW) to collaborate with bio.logis GIM in pharmacogenetics

Within the framework of U-PGx, an EU project for promoting the use of pharmacogenetic insights in healthcare, the Medical University of Vienna (MUW) will implement the Genetic Information Management Suite (GIMS) developed by bio.logis Genetic Information Management GmbH. The platform is the first of its kind to largely automatically translate genetic analysis results from laboratories into easily understood diagnostic reports, including the right treatment recommendations from the internationally renowned KNMP (the Royal Dutch Pharmacists Association). Here, the MUW uses the Diagnostic Report Module (GIMS.DRM) in combination with a QR-based safety code card, developed by MUW, for patients. This card is used to make patients’ personal analysis results accessible.
