Focus Eu-PIC

To perform research in, and driving clinical implementation of Pharmacogenetics, as an important tool to improve drug therapy and current health care.

Personalised medicine

Personalised medicine has the potential to respond to, amongst others, the increasing burden of chronic disease and the complexity of co-morbidities and in doing so contribute to the sustainability of health and care systems.

Metabolism by Cytochrome P450

This tutorial discusses how drugs are metabolized by Cytochrome P450 enzymes.

Antidepressants and metabolism

An (extremely) fast or slow metabolism is in many cases caused by variations in CYP2D6 and CYP2C19 enzyme activity. Variations in the genes encoding these enzymes can result in increased or decreased enzyme activity.

Improve patient care in Europe

OUR MISSION

Integrating Pharmacogenetic information in existing health care

OUR MISSION

Personalising drug therapy

OUR MISSION

Effects of slow metabolism

Patients with a slow metabolism often experience side effects, regardless of what medicine they are prescribed. In addition to side effects, they can also experience toxicity from the medicine used, which poses health risks.

Effects of rapid metabolism

Patients with a rapid metabolism may be unjustifiably accused of being unfaithful to therapy. They may not experience effects of the drug.

Biochemical pathways

Pharmacogenetics is based on the understanding that all drugs are taken through several biochemical pathways to break them down after they are administered. The body needs to eliminate these drugs and does it by breaking them down through biochemical pathways.
