PGX for Pharmacists

  • Publisher: Pharmacy Podcast Network
  • Total Episodes: 24

This podcast is all about the Pharmacist leveraging the power of Pharmacogenomics.  PGX for Pharmacists is a member of the Pharmacy Podcast Network.  Pharmacogenomics is the study of the role of the genome in drug response. Its name (pharmaco- + genomics) reflects its combining of pharmacology and genomics. Pharmacogenomics analyzes how the genetic makeup of an individual affects his/her response to drugs. It deals with the influence of acquired and inherited genetic variation on drug response in patients by correlating gene expression or single-nucleotide polymorphisms with pharmacokinetics (drug absorption, distribution, metabolism, and elimination) and pharmacodynamics (effects mediated through a drug’s biological targets).
