Integrating Pharmacogenomics in Practice: One GIFT at a Time or a Package Deal?

a present opened with DNA capsuls spilling out of them

Testing for genetic variants related to warfarin metabolism has been the poster child for pharmacogenomics in clinical practice for over a decade. A recent publication of the Genetic Informatics Trial (GIFT) provides additional evidence for the clinical benefits of incorporating pharmacogenomics testing into the management of warfarin initiation. In this multicenter study of older individuals Read More >
