Pharmacogenetic Development of Personalized Medicine: Multiple Sclerosis Treatment as a Model
Drug News Perspect
Journal article --- Old month value: Nov
The goal of pharmacogenetics is to identify "genetic fingerprints" that may predict a patient's response to pharmaceutical treatment. The use of pharmacogenetics replaces the trial-and-error strategy, which governs much of our clinical decision-making regarding treatment allocation in current medical practice, with individually tailored therapy. We review a pharmacogenetic research model, which implements high-throughput single nucleotide polymorphism technology to establish the correlation between drug-responsiveness and genetic polymorphisms of Copaxone(R)-treated multiple sclerosis patients. Implementation of similar pharmacogenetic approaches may promote the development of personalized medicine in multiple sclerosis as well as in other diseases. (c) 2002 Prous Science.
