The findings came from a secondary analysis of data from a trial with 3,037 acute coronary syndrome patients, who, for regulatory reasons, had to submit routine pharmacogenomic
testing for clopidogrel-metabolizing status when they entered the study.
In conjunction, OneOme's RightMed pharmacogenomic
test covers 22 genes, 340+ medications for more than 20 medical indications and it can be integrated into electronic medical records (EMRs).
testing of a person provides key genetic information that can help in customizing therapy.
The Clinical Pharmacogenomics
Implementation Consortium (CPIC), a shared project between Pharmacogenomics
Knowledgebase (PharmGKB) and the Pharmacogenomics
Research Network, has published peer-reviewed guidelines for drugs with pharmacogenomic
data to help clinicians interpret genetic test results to optimize drug therapy.
C's psychotherapy, we used the pharmacogenomic
results to guide medication treatment.
a company that provides a pharmacogenomic
test, said in an interview.
CVS Caremark already provides pharmacogenomic
intervention services in its specialty pharmacy business.
NVM also announced additional funding for leading biotechnology firm DxS to support their success in marketing and developing its pharmacogenomic
Based in Melbourne, Australia, EpiTan holds a unique technology platform centred on its leading drug candidate Melanotan, one of a new breed of pharmacogenomic
On the basis of the trial results the companies may also pursue the development of pharmacogenomic
tests to identify patients for whom a particular drug may be effective.
At the April 2003 US FDA Science Board meeting, Janet Woodcock, director of the FDA's Center for Drug Evaluation and Research, commented that greater analysis of pharmacogenomic
data provides the potential to revolutionize drug development processes and lead to faster, more efficient production of less-toxic, higher-efficacy drags.
tests are one of the great promises of genetics.
