Abstract

There has been considerable scientific, corporate and policy interest in the more effective use of genetics in both drug development and delivery. Pharmacogenetics — the study of the relationship between an individual's genetic makeup and response to medicinal drugs — has attracted global interest, but will it live up to its promise? Looking beyond the hype that has accompanied much of the commentary in the area, the future of pharmacogenetics will depend on how competing interests and options are resolved.
