Webinar: PGx Beyond Drug-Metabolizing Enzymes: A Multigene Approach to Predicting Drug Response

While drug-metabolizing and transport enzyme panels are important in pharmacogenetics, there is evidence that in highly multifactorial diseases such as hypertension there are other genetic factors that strongly affect a patient’s response to therapies. Dr. Ryan Sprissler of Geneticure will discuss a study examining these genetic determinants of hypertension therapy response that has shown that common and functional genetic variation plays a role in the variability of treatment effectiveness and may modulate the bell-curve response to many therapies.
