- Role of interactions in pharmacogenetic studies: leukotrienes in asthmaMarc Via
Department of Psychiatry and Clinical Psychobiology, University of Barcelona, 08035 Barcelona, Spain
Pharmacogenomics 14:923-9. 2013..Genes and drugs act at different orders of interaction (from individual effects to gene-gene-drug-drug interactions) and population-specific effects have to be considered. These results may be extrapolated to other complex phenotypes...
