What is pharmacogenetics?

Pharmacogenetics studies how genes affect the response of individuals to drugs. Advances in the knowledge of the DNA sequence thanks to the Human Genome Project and improvements in sequencing techniques have made it possible to carry out clinical trials that support the use of this discipline in the selection of the safest and most effective drugs for each person based on his or her genetic profile. As new findings are made in this area, updates are applied to our users’ results.
