Abstract Pharmacogenetics is genetic testing to optimise prescribing for individual patients. Warfarin is a potential candidate for pharmacogenetic testing as it is commonly used, has a narrow therapeutic window and its mechanism of action and elimination pathways involve receptors and enzymes that are polymorphic. Polymorphism is found in vitamin K epoxide reductase and cytochrome P450 2C9. Pharmacogenetic testing is not yet routine because alone it does not predict all the variability in a patient's response to warfarin so its contribution to improved clinical outcomes is uncertain.
