Pharmacogenomics

February 27, 2012

The application of genomics to the discovery and development process for drugs. This use of genetic information can predict the safety, toxicity and/or efficacy of drugs in individual patients or groups of patients. Genomics may aid drug development by defining specific receptive subpopulations of patients, thus simplifying and focusing the clinical trial process. Refined models of disease mechanism based on knowledge of the genome may provide new lines of research and possibly new drugs.
