Even when handed information on whether each clopidogrel-treated patient was a poor metabolizer of the drug, treating physicians usually did not switch them to a different antiplatelet drug, ticagrelor, that would be fully effective despite the patient's reduced-metabolizer status.
C's presentation, as well as information from the CPIC guidelines, we expect that she might experience substantial adverse effects from most selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors and tricycle antidepressants because of her intermediate metabolizer status for CYP2D6 and poor metabolizer status for CYP2C19.
It showed the patient to be an extensive metabolizer of beta blocking agents, with both alleles of the wild type, so poor metabolism and abnormal pharmacokinetics could not explain the occurrence of hyperkalemia in this patient.
Polymorphisms of population in pharmacogenetics are divided into the phenotypes as poor metabolizer (PM), intermediate metabolizer (IM), Extensive Metabolizer (EM), and ultra-rapid metabolizer (UM) (7,8).
Using an established consensus-building method that included multiple rounds of surveying, more than 90 percent of participating experts agreed to replace those descriptions with a single term, poor metabolizer.
This study found that carriers of the "slower" metabolizer genotype (AA), exposed to OP (diazinon, chlorpyrifos), exhibited a greater than 2-fold increase in PD risk compared with persons who had the wild-type or heterozygous genotype and no exposure [51].
Ironically, Ozzy's genes suggest that he is a slow metabolizer of coffee, meaning that he would be more affected by caffeine.
CYP2D6 metabolism in a subject can be described as poor metabolizer (with little or no metabolism), intermediate metabolizers (with a metabolism rate between poor and extensive), extensive metabolizer (with normal metabolism) or ultra-rapid metabolizer (with greater than normal metabolism due to multiple copies of CYP2D6 gene).
If one says that he can't sleep even after more than six hours of taking coffee, then, he's likely a relatively slow caffeine metabolizer.
For example, patients carrying 2 nonfunctional alleles that give rise to CYP2D6 poor metabolizer status derive little or no pain relief from codeine and tramadol.
When patients undergo pharmacogenetic testing, they are categorized into one of four phenotypes: ultra-rapid metabolizer (UM), extensive metabolizer (EM), intermediate metabolizer (IM), or poor metabolizer (PM).
