It is funded by a $25 million gift from philanthropist Denny Sanford and a matching fundraising effort from Sanford Health.</span></p><p><span style="font-size:15px;">Although the program initially focused on cancer survivors, veterans without cancer also can benefit from PHASeR. The pharmacogenomics tests will help physicians make clinical decisions for a variety of pharmaceutical treatments, including mental health and cardiovascular diseases, as well as pain management.</span></p><p><span style="font-size:15px;">Dr. Will Heise, assistant professor in the Division of Clinical Data Analytics and Decision Support at the UA College of Medicine – Phoenix, said PHASeR seeks to prevent adverse reactions to drugs, save lives and decrease health care costs over time.</span></p><p><span style="font-size:15px;">“The Veteran’s Administration is heavily invested in pharmacogenomics research and precision medicine,” Heise said. “Arizona veterans will benefit from our early entry into these kinds of programs. We serve a huge and growing number of veterans through the Arizona VA systems and have a talented precision medicine and biomedical informatics team at the UA College of Medicine – Phoenix.”</span></p><p><span style="font-size:15px;">Pharmacogenomics is the study of how genes affect a patient’s response to drugs. By studying an individual’s genes through a simple blood draw, physicians can determine which medications may be more effective for patients and which ones are less likely to produce adverse reactions. The patient’s current medications may be adjusted based on the tests. The results will be applicable throughout the patient’s lifetime and may help a physician select medications in the future, increasing their effectiveness and decreasing the risk of side effects.</span></p><p><span style="font-size:15px;">“This partnership signals the commitment of the Phoenix VA and UA College of Medicine – Phoenix to be a powerhouse of pharmacogenomics outcomes research,” Heise said. “This is truly cutting-edge medicine just starting to demonstrate its full potential.”</span></p><p><span style="font-size:15px;">Although cancer survivors are of specific interest, a cancer diagnosis is not required to participate in the program, which will expand to as many as 250,000 veterans at more than 100 sites nationally by 2022. It launched in March in Durham, N.C.</span></p><p><span style="font-size:15px;">Dr. Deepak Voora, director of the VA PHASeR Program, said the pilot is an opportunity to give back to veterans.</span></p><p><span style="font-size:15px;">“This enhances the VA’s ability to meet new and emerging needs for veterans, their families and caregivers,” said Voora, who is also an associate professor in the Department of Medicine and the Center for Applied Genomics and Precision Medicine at Duke University School of Medicine.</span></p><p><span style="font-size:15px;">Veterans can obtain access to the pharmacogenomics testing through a blood draw at their local VA facility. Sanford Health processes the tests at its South Dakota facility, and the patient and his or her physician will receive the results to help decide whether to change treatment.</span>​</p></div>9/30/2019 7:00:00 AMhttps://uahs.arizona.edu/news/ua-college-medicine-phoenix-va-health-care-system-launch-initiative-improve-treatment-options
