table 1: selected Personalized Medicine drugs,
treatments, and diagnostics as of March 2009*
her-2/neu receptor Breast cancer
: “…for the treatment of patients with metastatic breast cancer whose tumors over-
express the her2 protein and who have received one or more chemotherapy regimens for their metastatic disease.”
Pharmaceutical and surgical BRCA 1,2
: Guides surveillance and preventive treatment based on susceptibility risk for breast
prevention options and
aviara Breast cancer Breast cancer
: calculates a combined risk analysis for recurrence after tamoxifen treatment for
er-positive, node-negative breast cancer.
: Prognostic immunohistochemistry (ihc) test used for postmenopausal, node
negative, estrogen receptor expressing breast cancer patients who will receive hormonal therapy
and are considering adjuvant chemotherapy.
: assesses risk of distant metastasis in a 70 gene expression profile.
: “an increased bleeding risk for patients carrying either the CYP2C9*2
: “certain single nucleotide polymorphisms in the VKORC1
cially the -1639G>a allele) have been associated with lower dose requirements for warfarin.”
: determines CYP2C9
genotypes to predict likelihood of
adverse events with warfarin therapy.
: hereditary or acquired deficiencies of protein c or its cofactor, protein s,
has been associated with tissue necrosis following warfarin administration.
Pharmaceutical and lifestyle
: Guides prevention and drug selection for patients with inherited cardiac
channelopathies such as long Qt syndrome (lQts), which can lead to cardiac rhythm abnormalities.
: Predicts risk of statin-induced neuro-myopathy, based on a patient’s
combinatorial genotype for 50 genes.
: “doses should be individualized according to the recommended goal of
therapy. homozygous Familial hypercholestremia (10-80mg/day)and heterozygous (10-20mg/
: “variations in the UGT1A1
gene can influence a patient’s ability to break down
irinotecan, which can lead to increased blood levels of the drug and a higher risk of side effects.”
: “Patients enrolled in the clinical studies were required to have…evidence of posi-
expression using the dakocytomation EGFR
pharmdx™ test kit.” EGFR
individuals are more likely to respond to the drug than those with reduced EGFR
: certain KRAS
mutations lead to unresponsiveness to the drug.
Erbitux® (cetuximab) and
: Provides information of the expression of key molecular targets—KRAS
Epilepsy and bipolar disorder
: serious dermatologic reactions are associated with the HLA-
allele in patients treated with carbamazepine. “Prior to initiating tegretol therapy, testing
should be performed in patients with ancestry in populations in which HLA-
may be present.”
: Monitors patient’s immune response to heart transplant to guide immu-
: “Patients who carry the HLA-B*5701
allele are at high risk for experiencing a hypersensitiv-
ity reaction to abacavir. Prior to initiating therapy with abacavir, screening for the HLA-B*5701
allele is recommended.”
: “selzentry, in combination with other antiretroviral agents, is indicated for treatment experi-
enced adult patients infected with only ccr5-tropic hiv-1 detectable.”

Inflammatory bowel disease
: identifies subset of patients who will benefit from budesonide.
: “Gleevec® (imatinib mesylate) is indicated for the treatment of newly diagnosed adult
and pediatric patients with Philadelphia chromosome positive [indicated by presence of BCR-
] chronic myeloid leukemia (cMl) in chronic phase.”
: “dasatinib is indicated for the treatment of adults with Philadelphia chromosome-
positive acute lymphoblastic leukemia (Ph+ all) with resistance or intolerance to prior therapy”
: “Busulfan is clearly less effective in patients with chronic myelogenous leukemia who
lack the Philadelphia (Ph1) chromosome.”
: Guides adjustment of dose in treatment of acute lymphoblastic leukemia: “Patients
with inherited little or no thiopurine s-methyltransferase (tPMt) activity are at increased risk for
severe Purinethol toxicity from conventional doses…”
: the test determines patients most likely to respond.
: “rarely, unexpected severe toxicity (e.g., stomatitis, diarrhea, neutropenia and
neurotoxicity) associated with 5-fluorouracil has been attributed to a deficiency of dihydropyrimi-
dine dehydrogenase (dPd) activity.”
: Guides surveillance and preventive treatment based on susceptibility risk for
: determines cancer classification for tumors of unknown primary origin.
aviara cancertyPe Multiple cancers
: classifies 39 tumor types from tumors of unknown primary origin, using a
: “rasburicase administered to patients with glucose- phosphate dehydrogenase
(G6Pd) deficiency can cause severe hemolysis. … it is recommended that patients at higher risk
for G6Pd deficiency … be screened prior to starting eliteK therapy.”
: Fda classification 21 cFr 862.3360: “this device is used as an aid in deter-
mining treatment choice and individualizing treatment dose for therapeutics that are metabolized primarily by the specific enzyme about which the system provides genotypic information.”

epam, esomeprazole, nelfinavir,

thioridazine, timolol maleate,
tiotropium bromide inhalation, tolt-
erodine, tramadol, venlafaxine
: n-acetyltransferase slow and fast acetylators and toxicity- “slow acetylation
may lead to higher blood levels of the drug, and thus, an increase in toxic reactions.”
: detects cd-20 variant (polymorphism in the igG Fc receptor gene
) to predict response to cancer drug rituximab.
: “Patients who are known or suspected to be P450 2c9 poor metabolizers based on a previ-
ous history should be administered celecoxib with caution as they may have abnormally high
plasma levels due to reduced metabolic clearance.”
: Predicts risk of psychotropic-induced metabolic syndrome, based on a
patient’s combinatorial genotype for 50 genes.
: “Gleevec® is also indicated for the treatment of patients with Kit (CD117
tive unresectable and/or metastatic malignant gastrointestinal stromal tumors (Gist).”
