Use of pharmacogenomics principles have become a staple part during early drug discovery processes. Its application continues during preclinical and clinical drug development. Absorption, Distribution, Metabolism, Elimination (ADME) chip like DMETâ¢ Plus Solution Kits are now routinely used for profiling metabolic pathways. These chips include some of the well-known variants in transporter genes, metabolizing enzymes like CYPs, safety/efficacy biomarkers and population specific biomarkers. This represents how drug discovery efforts based on pharmacogenomics are directly applied to pharmacology, translational as well as preclinical and clinical research.
