Cytochrome P450 2D6
Several commonly prescribed drugs are metabolized by the CYP2D6 enzyme. Examples include codeine, tamoxifen, tramadol, and metoprolol. Variations in the CYP2D6 gene causes variations in the function of the enzyme, and therefore in drug metabolism. Dr. Black will explain how identification of specific alleles will assist clinicians in selection of appropriate drugs for each individual.
