Cytochrome P450 Genotyping Panel
Ordering Recommendation

Assess genetic risk of abnormal drug metabolism for drugs metabolized by CYP2C19, CYP2C8, CYP2C9, CYP2D6, CYP3A4, and CYP3A5. May aid in drug selection and dose planning for many drugs.

Interpretive Data
Background Information for Cytochrome P450 Genotyping Panel:
The cytochrome P450 (CYP) isozymes 2C19, 2C8, 2C9, 2D6 and the CYP3A subfamily are involved in the metabolism of many drugs. Variants in the genes that code for CYP2C19, CYP2C8, CYP2C9, CYP2D6, CYP3A4 and CYP3A5 will influence pharmacokinetics of respective substrates, and may predict or explain non-standard dose requirements, therapeutic failure or adverse reactions.
Autosomal codominant.
Gene variants affect enzyme expression or activity.
Variants Tested:
See the Additional Technical Information document.
Clinical Sensitivity:
Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and fluorescence monitoring.
Analytical Sensitivity and Specificity:
Greater than 99 percent.
Only the targeted variants will be detected by this panel, and assumptions about phase and content are made to assign alleles. Publically available sources such as the or provide guidance on phenotype predictions and allele frequencies. A combination of the CYP2D6*5 (gene deletion) and a CYP2D6 gene duplication cannot be specifically identified; however, this combination is not expected to adversely affect the phenotype prediction. Diagnostic errors can occur due to rare sequence variations. Risk of therapeutic failure or adverse reactions with gene substrates may be affected by genetic and non-genetic factors that are not detected by this test. This result does not replace the need for therapeutic drug or clinical monitoring.

Please note the information contained in this report does not contain medication recommendations, and should not be interpreted as recommending any specific medications. Any dosage adjustments or other changes to medications should be evaluated in consultation with a medical provider.

Compliance Statement C: For human genetic inheritable conditions and mutations. This test was developed and its performance characteristics determined by ARUP Laboratories. The U. S. Food and Drug Administration has not approved or cleared this test; however, FDA clearance or approval is not currently required for clinical use. The results are not intended to be used as the sole means for clinical diagnosis or patient management decisions.

Counseling and informed consent are recommended for genetic testing. Consent forms are available online.

Whole blood is the preferred specimen. Saliva samples that yield inadequate DNA quality and/or quantity will be reported as inconclusive if test performance does not meet laboratory-determined criteria for reporting.
