Bertino (pharmacology, Columbia U.) et al. bring together pharmacologists, pharmacists, and others from the US, Asia, Europe, and Australia for 17 chapters that introduce pharmacogenomics to students, trainees, scientists, and clinicians in pharmacy, medicine, nursing, and other allied health professions. They cover general aspects, including analytical methods to identify genetic variations, bioinformatics, ethics, legal and social issues, patient counseling, regulatory science, pharmacoeconomics, molecular genetics and testing, the pharmacogenetics of cytochrome P450, phase II drug metabolizing enzymes, drug transporters, and nongenetic influences on drug metabolism, and the role of pharmacogenomics in cardiovascular medicine, immunology, oncology, psychiatry and addiction medicine, neurology, gastroenterology, and nephrology.
