A patient's genetic profile is considered to be a major aspect in individualizing pharmacotherapy.The level of implementation of pharmacogenetics in daily clinical practice is still very low, despite the large number of published pharmacogenetic studies. Results of these studies have rarely been translated into recommendations regarding drug..
