Advisory Information


Testing is available as the single gene assay (this test) or as a part of a focused pharmacogenomics panel, which includes testing for the following genes: CYPs 1A2, 2C9, 2C19, 2D6, 3A4, 3A5, 4F2, SLCO1B1, and VKORC1. Order PGXFP / Focused Pharmacogenomics Panel if multiple pharmacogenomic genotype testing is desired.

Useful For

Predicting risk for statin-associated myopathy in patients beginning statin therapy, especially simvastatin therapy

 

Determining a potential statin lipid lowering response, especially when using pravastatin

Genetics Test Information

This is a pharmacogenomics test for genotype for the rs4149056 (c.521T->C) variant found in the *5, *15, and *17 alleles, and rs4149015 (c.-910G->A) found in the *17 and *21 alleles. Presence of the *5 allele is associated with an increased risk for simvastatin-associated myopathy.
