Description: The science of pharmacogenetics is making solid progress in providing DNA-based information to the clinicians to assist them in determining the right drug, the proper dosage, and how to avoid major side effects. In the coming years, patients may wish to carry their genetic information on a memory card in their wallet or purse, in a similar notion to wearing a medical alert bracelet, but in a more information-rich manner.
