Pharmacogenetics

What is Pharmacogenetics?

Pharmacogenetics definition and meaning on Health terms:
Pharmacogenetics is the study of individual genetic differences to understand how genes affect a person’s response to medicines. Understanding how different genetics affect how a medicine is processed can help doctors to more accurately determine which medicine and which dose is best for each patient according to their response. Pharmacogenetics also helps doctors identify the medicine that best treats a disease and is least likely to cause side effects.
