Format

Pharmacogenomics is a component of genomic medicine that involves using a patient’s genomic information to tailor the selection of drugs used in their medical management. It is one more tool to help optimize drug therapy. This monograph will provide an overview of pharmacogenomics and how the genome affects drug metabolism. It will also discuss the role of FDA recommendations and the Clinical Pharmacogenetics Implementation Consortium guidelines to help guide therapy based on genomic phenotypes. The pharmacist’s expanding role in pharmacogenomic testing, interpreting findings, and making recommendations to enhance drug therapy are discussed.
