FDA releases list of evidence-based pharmacogenetic variants

Pharmacogenetics (PGx) is the study of how an individual’s genetic makeup affects their drug response and metabolism. An understanding of PGx could help clinicians make prescribing decisions and has the potential to be implemented in routine care worldwide. PGx has understandably been gaining traction and support, with pharmacogenomic elements being implemented into many international Genomic studies.
