5 Asians have a high incidence of the intermediate metaboliser (IM) allele, CYP2D6*10, which encodes an enzyme with reduced activity.
Test findings and reports will help clinicians make decisions on how to optimise patient treatment, as well as will provide assistance in the clearance of drugs requiring before licences (where medical necessity is shown based on genetics) and detection of poor and ultra-rapid metabolisers for optimising future therapy, among other things.
3) For drugs inactivated by the CYP enzymes, poor metabolisers will be slow to clear the drug and risk toxicity, while ultrafast metabolisers will clear the drug too rapidly and may not achieve therapeutic plasma concentrations (see box 1, p22).
The potential study participants were genotyped by PAREXEL to identify nearly 400 poor metabolisers of Cytochrome P450 2D6 (CYP2D6), an enzyme involved in the metabolism of drugs.
Physonics new Skin Genuity Body Perfecting Formula relies on a system called ethosomes, which it is claimed encapsulate proven fat metabolisers like caffeine and allow them to penetrate deep into the skin to fat tissue.
