Abstract

Pharmacogenetics is the study of individual differences in drug response. The field has been recognized since the early 1950s, but the biomedical research devoted to it has been relatively slow in development. Nevertheless, pharmacogenetics has manifold, important implications for health. For some individuals, for example, what would otherwise be termed a drug’s “side effect” may in fact be the main drug effect. Alternatively, an individual may be predisposed to insensitivity to a particular drug, with implications for dose or to make administration of the drug futile. In this chapter we will explore the genetic bases for individual differences in drug actions (although there are environmental effects as well).
