Research Projects: Personalized Medicine (Key Issues) Genetic Variance: Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms (SNPs) are differences in the DNA. They represent 90% of all human genetic variations. Genetically similar to a mutation, but distinct in that a SNP is not causal to a clinical disease or disorder. Genetic Inheritance: The appearance of deleterious mutations during evolution tend to NOT be inherited for obvious reasons (those that affect growth, reproduction and viability). Our modern existence is the result of millions of years of tolerated (and occasionally beneficial) changes in our genome, which is most often evident in what natural products we can and cannot eat or consume (evolutionary pressure & natural selection). Natural Products vs. Modern Pharmaceuticals: Differences in our genome and our response to these compounds Natural Selection vs. Modern Life Span: We are the 10th generation of humans on earth with an average life span >40 years old! Personalized Medicine involves understanding how some genetic markers impact drug safety and efficacy, and PREDICTING how a patient will respond to a specific drug/dose (based on the patient’s genetic profile). For the healthcare consumer, most of these genetic differences have an effect on (1) drug metabolism (pharmacokinetics) or (2) drug action (pharmacodynamics).
Research Projects: Personalized Medicine Adverse Drug Reactions o More than 770,000 patients die or sustain serious injury every year in the U.S. from Adverse Drug Reactions (ADRs). o ADRs are the 5th leading cause of death in the United States and are one of the leading, preventable public health issues today. o In terms of total health care dollars, ADRs cost the U.S. health care system between $1.5 and $5.4 billion per year. o It is estimated that human genetic variation (SNPs) have been account for approximately 30% of all ADRs. o 1 in 5 people in the US harbor a SNP that alters the drug metabolism or drug activity of at least one FDA approved drug.
Pharmacogenomics and Personalized Medicine EXAMPLE: Warfarin (Coumadin): Anticoagulation. If you are prescribed WARFARIN, you have a condition that may generate potentially life-threatening blood clots. If you are dosed with too much WARFARIN you could experience serious complications due to internal bleeding, yet if you are dosed with too little WARFARIN you may be in danger of serious consequences associated with circulating emboli due to excessive blot clotting. Warfarin Metabolism (hepatic) CYP2C9 to 6-hydroxywarfain Warfarin Drug Action (circulator system) Vitamin K Epoxide Reductase Complex 1 (VKORC1) Inhibitor
Pharmacogenomics and Personalized Medicine GENESCRIPTION was developed as an educational tool that models the FUTURE of applied personalized medicine. The online portal models a drug dispensing environment (pharmacist) where the user is presented with a patient that has: 1)DNA screened to identify any SNPs related to drug safety and efficacy. 2)Prescribed a drug that is affected by a SNP related to drug safety and efficacy. 3)Provides predictive information regarding the safety and efficacy of the prescribed drug in the patient. www.genescription.com Genescription is a free, online instructional utility available to the public, and can be accessed and utilized by anyone with an internet connection.
