Role of genetic testing in patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention

Expert Review of Clinical Pharmacology – The present manuscript provides an overview of genetic factors associated with response profiles to platelet P2Y12 receptor inhibitors and their clinical implications, as well as the most recent developments and future considerations on the role of genetic testing in patients undergoing PCI.

Implementing Algorithm-Guided Warfarin Dosing in an Ethnically Diverse Patient Population Using Electronic Health Records and Preemptive CYP2C9 and VKORC1 Genetic Testing

Clinical Pharmacology & Therapeutics – To facilitate multiethnic algorithm-guided warfarin dosing using preemptive genetic testing, we developed a strategy that accounts for the complexity of race and leverages electronic health records for algorithm variables and deploying point-of-care dose recommendations.

Impact of GGCX, STX1B and FPGS Polymorphisms on Warfarin Dose Requirements in European‐Americans and Egyptians

Clinical and Translational Science – Genotype‐based algorithms that include VKORC1 and CYP2C9 genotypes are less predictive of warfarin dose variability in Africans as opposed to Europeans. Polymorphisms in GGCX, FPGS, or STX1B are associated with warfarin dose requirements in African‐Americans. We sought to determine if they influenced warfarin dose in European‐Americans, and another African population, specifically Egyptians.
