RM301.3.G45P76 2012

 

Professor Barbara Evans authored the chapter “Legal Trends Driving the Clinical Translation of Pharmacogenomics,” which begins on page 81. 

 

The study of pharmacogenetics and pharmacogenomics focuses on how our genes and complex gene systems influence our response to drugs. The aim is to improve personalised medicine – not simply to prescribe the right medicine, but to deliver the right drug at the right dose at the right time. This book brings together leading experts to discuss the latest information on how human genetics impacts drug response phenotypes. It presents not only the basic principles of pharmacogenetics, but also clinically valuable examples that cover a broad range of specialties and therapeutic areas.
