Genomic Predictors of Psychotropic Drug Response (CHR: 10-00762)

Description

Do you have a patient with a history of poor psychotropic drug efficacy and/or intolerance? Your patient may be eligible for a research study in the Department correlating genetic polymorphisms and clinical outcomes and side effects of psychotropic medications. Participants will be asked to complete a questionnaire and come to LPPI for a blood draw, and will be compensated with a $25 gift card. As the prescribing clinician, you will also be asked to fill out a very brief questionnaire. Genetic results for 34 drug metabolism and transporter genes will be provided to you with interpretation based on current literature. If you have a patient you think is eligible please contact Steve Hamilton at steve.hamilton@ucsf.edu (PI’s: Hamilton, Mathews, and Reus).
