The safety and efficacy of drug therapy are influenced by many factors, such as age, weight, comorbidity, comedication and genetic variations. Patients vary widely in response to drug treatment. Slow and ultrarapid metaboliser individuals are under increased risk for adverse drug reactions or treatment failure. Drug metabolising enzymes are..
