The difference in drug response is very common among patients. Recently, phamacogenetics is dealing with variety of responses to medications for patients. The different response to drugs due to various reasons such as genetics constitutions, environmental factors and drug dosages. Findings from pharmacogenetics are socially, medically, scientifically and economically important. Genetic profiling of the population in the future will allow medical care predicting drug response or the development of DNA tests. We can not always rely on pharmacogentics base drug response because there are also non-genetic factors that can affect the response to drug, thus causing difficulty in diagnosis and choice of drug. Now, we have entered a new era with pharmacogenetics, which appear highly promising in enhancing the support to therapeutic decision- making, predicting patients who are most likely to respond best to a particular drug, or in whom the drug will yield optimal effects.
