1 Pharmacogenomics and Therapy Dosing Tracy ChenDoctor of Pharmacy Candidate 2007 University of WashingtonSeptember 1, 2006Pharmacogenetics=the study of variability in drug responses due to heredity (1).Pharmacogenomics=a broader term excompassing all genes in the genome that may determine drug responses.These two terms are now used interchangeably.
2 SOME FACTS AND STATISTICS Factors to drug responses:Intrinsic factors: age, gender, race/ethnicity, disease states, organ dysfunctions, and geneticsPhysiological changes: pregnancy, lactationExtrinsic factors: smoking, diet, concomitant medicationsAdverse drug reactions (ADRs):Caused 5% of hospitalizationExperienced by 10% of the hospitalized patients700,000 injuries/deaths per yearestimated to be the 4th or 6th leading cause of death in the US for the hospitalized patients back at 1998Huang SM, Goodsaid F, Rahman A, et el. Toxicology Mechanisms and Methods. 2006;(16)
3 SOME FACTS AND STATISTICS 59% of drugs causing ADRs are metabolized by polymorphic enzymes7-22% of other randomly selected drugs are substrates for polymorphic enzymesPolymorphisms occur in transporters, receptors, and other therapeutic targets are also associated with interindividual variability in drug response.Huang SM, Goodsaid F, Rahman A, et el. Toxicology Mechanisms and Methods. 2006;(16)
5 CYP2D6 AND CYP2C19 CYP 2D6 in Caucasians: CYP 2C19 in Caucasians: PM: 7%IM: 40%EM: 50% (normal metabolizers)UM: 3%CYP 2C19 in Caucasians:PM: 3%IM: 27%EM: 70% (normal metabolizers)Kirchheiner J, Nickchen K, Bauer M, et el. Mol Psychiatry 2004 May; 9 (5):
6 ANTIPSYCHOTICS AND ANTIDEPRESSANTS Psychological disorders are among the most important causes of death and disability worldwideGreat impact on public healthOnly 35-45% of the patients respond to the treatments and return to functional level30-50% of the patients will not respond sufficientlyKirchheiner J, Nickchen K, Bauer M, et el. Mol Psychiatry 2004 May; 9 (5):
7 TCA dose adjustments are recommended for 2D6 PM and UM. CYP2D6 AND TCAs2D6 PM: 50% OF THE STANDARD DOSESTCA dose adjustments are recommended for 2D6 PM and UM.Kirchheiner J, Nickchen K, Bauer M, et el. Mol Psychiatry 2004 May; 9 (5):
8 CYP2D6 AND OTHER ANTIDEPRESSANTS PAROXETINE IS THE ONLY SSRI THAT NEEDS DOSE ADJUSTMENT ACCORDING TO 2D6 GENOTYPES! Though SSRIs like paroxetine, fluoxetine, and fluvoxamine are strong 2D6 inhibitors. Need to watch out for DDIs.Kirchheiner J, Nickchen K, Bauer M, et el. Mol Psychiatry 2004 May; 9 (5):
9 Antipsychotic dose adjustments are recommended for 2D6 PM and UM. 2D6 AND ANTIPSYCHOTICSRISPERIDONE: NO SIG DOSING DIFF FOR MULTIPLE DOSE DUE TO AN ACTIVE METABOLITE;FLUPENTIXOL, ZUCLOPENTHIXOL, AND PERAZINE ARE NOT FDA APPROVED FOR ANTIPSYCHOTIC USAGE.Antipsychotic dose adjustments are recommended for 2D6 PM and UM.Kirchheiner J, Nickchen K, Bauer M, et el. Mol Psychiatry 2004 May; 9 (5):
10 2C19 EM: 110% of standard doses 2C19 AND ANTIDEPRESSANTSNO SIGNIFICANT EFFECTS ON ANTIPSYCHOTICS.Recommendation: 2C19 PM: 60% of standard doses2C19 EM: 110% of standard dosesKirchheiner J, Nickchen K, Bauer M, et el. Mol Psychiatry 2004 May; 9 (5):
11 CYP2C9 20% of hepatic CYP enzymes CYP2C9 *2 allelic frequencies: 10% Anderson T, Flockhart DA, Goldstein DB, et el. Clin Pharmcol Thera Dec; 78(6):
12 CYP2C9 AND WARFARINWarfarin is the most common oral anticoagulant in the worldThe only anticoagulant available in the united statesTherapeutic range: INR 2-3 ( for prosthetic heart valves)INR <2: risk of thromboembolic eventINR >3: risk of bleeding complicationsProphylaxis and treatment of venous and arterial thromboembolic disordersMushiroda T, Ohnishi Y, Saito S, et el. J Hum Genet. 2006;51(3):
13 The more potent S-warfarin is metabolized almost exclusively by CPY2C9 in the liver. Polymorphism of CYP2C9 in Caucasians accounts for some of the interpatient variability of warfarin daily dose. Blood clotting factors II, VII, IX, X, and endogenous anticoagulant proteins C, S, and Z are activated by gamma-glutamyl carboxylase with required cofactor, reduced fom of vitamin K, which is recycled by vitamin K 1,2 epoxide reductase complex (VKORC). Warfarin binds to the protein vitamin K reductase complex subunit 1 (VKORC1) encoded by gene VKORC1.Gage B. Nov FDA Clin Pharm Advisor Committe
14 CYP2C9 POLYMORPHISMClearance of S-warfarin and time to achieve steady-state (5x T1/2):*1/*1: ~ 3 days*1/*2: ~ 6 days*1/*3: ~ 12 daysLinder MW Ph.D. DABCC, Manage the “Over-steer” in warfarin dose titration.
15 VKORC1 POLYMORPHISMAt least 10 different single-nucleotide-polymorphisms (SNPs) were identifiedHaplotype A (-1639GA, 1173CT): lower maintenance doseHaplotype B (9041GA): higher maintenance doseVKORC1 A/A: 2.7 ± 0.2 mg/dVKORC1 A/B: 4.9 ± 0.2 mg/dVKORC1 B/B: 6.2 ± 0.3 mg/dMean maintenance dose: 5.1 ± 0.2 mg/dRieder MJ, Reiner AP, Gage BF, et el.

19 UGT1A1Homozygous UGT1A1*28 allele with reduced enzyme activity in Caucasian: 10%.Irinotecan carboxylesterase SN-38 (active)SN-38 UDP-glucuronosyl transferase 1A1 (UGT1A1) conjugated inactive metabolite.SN-38 can be metabolized by UGT1A6, 1A7, 1A9, and 1A10 as well.Anderson T, Flockhart DA, Goldstein DB, et el. Clin Pharmcol Thera Dec; 78(6):Camptosar (irinotecan) package insert:
20 UGT1A1SN-38 is associated with neutropenia and life-threatening diarrhea.Patients with homozygous UGT1A1*28 allele are at increased risk for ADRs following the initiation of therapy due to increased level of SN-38.Recommend decrease the starting dose of irinotecan by at least 1 dose level to avoid cytotoxicity for homozygous UGT1A1*28 allele carriers.Camptosar (irinotecan) package insert:
21 TPMT TPMT- normal metabolizer (homozygous functional alleles): 90% TPMT- intermediate metabolizer (heterozygous with one nonfunctional allele): 10%TPMT- deficient metabolizer (homozygous nonfunctional alleles): 0.3%TPMT deficient metabolizer: no or low TPMT activityEichelbaum M, Ingelman-Sundberg M, Evans WE. Annu Rev Med :
22 TPMTAzathioprine used in renal transplant and rheumatoid arthritis. 6-MP is used in chemotherapy.Azathioprine is hydrolyzed to 6-MP, which is further metaboilized by TPMT and xanthine oxidase to inactive metabolites or by HGPRT pathway with other kinases to form 6-TGN, the active thiopurine metabolite.Azathioprine and 6-mercaptopurine are immunosuppressive antimetabolites.Imuran (azathioprine) package insert:
23 TPMTThe active thiopurine metabolite, 6-TGN, can eventually results in myelosuppresion, a dose limiting factor for therapy.TPMT- deficient metabolizers can have increased level of 6-TGN and are at higher risk for severe, sometimes fatal, myelosuppresion.TPMT deficient metabolizer: no or low TPMT activityEichelbaum M, Ingelman-Sundberg M, Evans WE. Annu Rev Med :
24 TPMTPredominantly genotyping or phenotyping for TPMT variant alleles is recommended before thiopurine therapy.TPMT- deficient metabolizers:give 6-10% of the standard dose of thiopurine and monitor CBC carefully.TPMT- intermediate metabolizers:usually start on full dose, but dose reduction is recommended to avoid toxicity.TPMT deficient metabolizer: no or low TPMT activityImuran (azathioprine) package insert:Eichelbaum M, Ingelman-Sundberg M, Evans WE. Annu Rev Med :
25 DDI THIOPURINES VS ALLOPURINOL Allopurinol is a xanthine oxidase inhibitor.Give 1/3 -1/4 of the usual dose of azathioprine if patients receive both allopurinol and azathioprine concomitantly.Use further dose reduction or alternative therapies for TPMT- deficient metabolizers receiving both azathioprine and allopurinol.Imuran (azathioprine) package insert:
26 ATOMOXETINE VS 2D6 INHIBITORS ATOMOXETINE VS 2D6 PMCav,ss and AUC of atomoxetine are approximately 10 fold higher in 2D6 PMs than in EMs. The mean T1/2 has increased from 5.2 hours to 21.6 hours.ATOMOXETINE VS 2D6 INHIBITORSAtomoxetine concentration increases by 3-4 fold when coadministered with paroxetine.Sauer JM, Ring BJ, Witcher JW. Clin Pharmacokinet. 2005; 44(6):Strattera (atomoxetine) package insert:
27 ATOMOXETINERecommend dosage adjustment in CYP2D6 PM and those taking strong 2D6 inhibitorsIndividual > 70 kg: start at 40 mg/dayIndividual ≤ 70 kg: start at 0.5 mg/kg/day.*Increase to the usual target dose of 80 mg/day and 1.2 mg/kg/day, respectively, only if treatment fails to improve symptoms after 4 weeks and the initial doses are well tolerated.Strattera (atomoxetine) package insert:
28 CONCLUSIONGenotyping recommended for different polymorphic enzymes before initiation of therapiesDose recommendationsImprove better therapeutic outcomesMinimizing adverse drug reactionsFurther studies on ethnicities, pharmacoeconomics, dosing algorithms (prospective) required.
