Pharmacogenomics is the basis of personalized medicine, which is said to be the medicine of the future. Understanding genetic variation in alcohol response is vital for professionals involved in alcohol rehabilitation programs. This volume focuses on how pharmacogenomic principles are applied to alcohol and drug testing and treatment and discusses the role of the clinical laboratory in the practice of personalized medicine. With contributions from a range of experts, the text presents the genetic aspects of alcohol metabolism and drugs of abuse, including marijuana, cocaine, and amphetamine. It also covers methodologies in pharmacogenomic testing.
