Pharmacogenomics, Genetic makeup, Drug development, Individual response to drugs, Prescriptions

Description
The goal of pharmacogenomics is to develop drugs that will optimally affect each individual regardless of variations in genetics.  Presently drugs are given to the general population and each individual responds according to his specific genetic makeup.  Some of these individuals have adverse drug reactions.  Pharmacogenomics makes it possible to give specific doses for an individual's metabolism according to genetic makeup.
