What is analyzed in a pharmacogenetic study?

In a pharmacogenetic study we study changes known as polymorphisms or SNPs, which appear frequently in the population, and which are responsible for the normal variability of each person. Specifically, changes in the genes involved in the metabolization, transport or sites of action of drugs are analyzed, so that all these processes will vary between individuals and, consequently, the response to these drugs.
