The Role of Cost-Effectiveness Analysis in the Era of Pharmacogenomics

  title={The Role of Cost-Effectiveness Analysis in the Era of Pharmacogenomics},
  author={Christopher R Flowers and David L. Veenstra},
The broad availability of genetic information and technologies heralds an era when practitioners will utilise genomic testing to individualise patients’ care. Pharmacogenomics uses a spectrum of approaches to explore the association of genetic variation with drug efficacy or toxicity. Investigators have described a broad array of genetic polymorphisms that confer inter-individual differences in drug response. Pharmacogenomics offers the potential to improve drug effectiveness, reduce adverse… CONTINUE READING
