It is the author's estimate that predictive cytochrome P450 genotyping will improve the clinical efficacy of 15-25% of all drug therapy and reduce the incidence of ADRs by 10-20%. Other aspects that underlie interindividual variability in drug metabolism, such as bad compliance, unfavorable drug-drug interactions, and pathophysiolog-ical conditions, must of course remain primary factors of concern in drug treatment. The knowledge in the area of cytochrome P450 pharmacogenetics has, however, now increased to such an extent that it would be possible to put labels on those drugs where we know that the individual response to the drug would benefit substantially by predictive genotyping of the cytochrome P450 gene in question. In relation to the costs for prolonged hospital visits, etc., the costs for such genotyping are minimal and would increase the health in a substantial part of the population and decrease the costs for the society.
