Pharmacogenomics is the process of analyzing patients' genes to predict the onset of adverse reactions or forecast the effectiveness of therapeutic drugs. This useful text is written to discuss both the theory and the clinical application of the principles of pharmacogenomics. Current research has clearly established that a range of treatments may be greatly improved through genetic profiling of individual patients before certain therapies begin. Aimed at clinicians, pharmacologists, and clinical laboratory professionals this book discusses the important role of laboratory tests in the practice of personalized medicine. An important new book, Pharmacogenomics in Clinical Therapeutics serves as a guide to the basic principles of pharmacogenomics in a range of common therapeutic areas and as the basis of the personalized medicine of the future.
