Apremilast Pharmacogenomics in Russian Patients with Moderate-to-Severe and Severe Psoriasis

Apremilast Pharmacogenomics in Russian Patients with Moderate-to-Severe and Severe Psoriasis

One target drug for plaque psoriasis treatment is apremilast, which is a phosphodiesterase 4 (PDE4) inhibitor selective. In this study, 34 patients with moderate and severe moderate plaque psoriasis from Russia were treated with apremilast for 26 weeks. This allows us to observe the effectiveness of patient cohort separation based on clinical results, which is assessed using the psoriasis area severity index (PASI). In total, 14 patients (41%) indicated having advanced results with Delta PASI 75 after treatment; 20 patients indicate have moderate or not effects.

The variability of the genome was investigated using an array of global illagina infinium screening. Genome analysis reveals the association of clinical therapy therapy in three compact genome regions with an unspecified function which lies in chromosome 2, 4, and 5, as well as in one single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) in chromosomes 23. SNP selected previously associated with analysis Psoriasis vulgaris, which is used to identify the four-related efficiency of SNP-related therapy: IL1β (RS1143633), IL4 (IL13) (RS20541), IL23R (RS2201841), and TNFα Gen (RS1800629). In addition, we show that the use of a global polygenic risk score is permitted to predict the onset psoriasis in Russia. Therefore, this result can function as a starting point for creating a predictive model of apremilast therapy response in therapy targeted by patients with vulgaris psoriasis.

Pharmacogenomics at the Point of Care: Community Pharmaceutical Projects in British Columbia

In this study 180 patients were approved and registered for pharmacogenomic testing based on the current use of antidepressants / antipsychotics. Samples of genotype patients by PCR, Massarray, and target the next generation sequencing. We also conduct quantitative analysis, frequency based from participant perceptions using a simple survey. Pharmacogenomic information, including changes in treatment and modified dose recommendations are returned to pharmacists and is used to direct patient therapy.

Extraordinary, patients feel pharmacists / pharmacies as proper health care providers to provide pharmacogenomic services. In total, 81 drug changes in 33 unique patients, representing 22% of all genotype participants were recorded. We conducted a simple drug cost analysis and found that treatment adjustments and dosage changes throughout the cohort added $ 24.15cad per patient per year for those who needed adjustments. Comparing different platforms, we found a small number, 1.7%, differences in genotypes.

We conclude that: (1). Pharmacists are competent pharmacogenomic service providers. (2). Potential reduction of detrimental drug responses and optimization of drug selection and doses come at a minimum cost for health care systems. (3). Changes in drug therapy, based on the PGX test, produces important changes in the cost of annual drug therapy with a small cost increase exactly as cost savings. (4). The pharmacogenomic service offered by pharmacists is ready for extensive commercial implementation.

Pharmacogenomics, how to handle various types of variants in the next generation seuensation data in the area of ​​personalized drugs

Pharmacogenomics (PGX) is the knowledge of a variety of response and drug effects on people, based on their genome profiles. This information is considered as one of the main directions to achieve personal medicine in future clinical practices. Since the beginning of implementing the next generation (NGS) sequencing method (NGS) in clinical investigations related to drugs, many general drugs find their genetic data for metabolism / proteins delivery related to the human body.

However, hiring technology accompanied by large data obtained, which most of them have no clear guidelines to be considered in routine maintenance decisions for patients. The review of this article talks about various types of NGS which are revealed by the PGX variant in clinical studies and tries to display the current and new approach to be developed to handle pharmacogenetic data with / without clear guidance to consider in clinical settings.

Practical Obstacles and Facilitators experienced by patients, pharmacists and doctors for the implementation of pharmacogenomic screening in Netherlands Outpatient Hospital Care – Exploratory Pilot Studies

Pharmacogenomics (PGX) can provide treatment optimized to each patient while potentially reducing health care costs. However, the widespread implementation remains none. We conducted a pilot study of PGX playback in the care of the Dutch outpatient hospital to identify obstacles and facilitators for the implementation experienced by patients (n = 165), pharmacists (n = 58) and doctors (n = 21). Our results indeed show that the practical experience of current practices with PGX is limited, that the right education is needed, that patients want to know the exact implications of the results, that health care practitioners are very dependent on their computer systems, that practical health practitioners’ practitioners.

The problem in the system used, and a new barrier identified, namely that there is an unclear allocation of responsibility between health practitioners about who should discuss PGX with patients and apply PGX results in health care. We observed a positive attitude towards PGX among all stakeholders in our study, and among patients, this was independent of the interaction of genes during their care.

The facilitator includes availability and compliance with the guidelines for the Dutch Pharmacogenetics Working Group. While clinical decision support (CD) is available and assessed in our medical center, the lack of CD availability may be an important barrier in Dutch health care in general.
