Allele and genotype frequencies of CYP2C9, CYP2C19 and CYP2D6 in an Italian population.
The polymorphic cytochrome P450 isoenzymes (CYPs) 2C9, 2C19 and 2D6 metabolise many important drugs, as well as other xenobiotics. Their polymorphism gives rise to important interindividual andExpand

Cytochrome P450 2D6 genotype and steady state plasma levels of risperidone and 9-hydroxyrisperidone
Abstract The role of the polymorphic cytochrome P450 2D6 (CYP2D6) in the metabolism of risperidone to its major active metabolite, 9-hydroxyrisperidone (9-OH-risperidone), has been documented afterExpand

CYP2D6 and CYP2C19 genotype‐based dose recommendations for antidepressants:
a first step towards subpopulation‐specific dosages
Objective: This review aimed to provide distinct dose recommendations for antidepressants based on the genotypes of cytochrome P450 enzymes CYP2D6 and CYP2C19. This approach may be a usefulExpand
