This lecture will introduce the nomenclature that defines the core of pharmacogenomics (PGx), and review genetic variants (identified by PGx), which affect psychotropic safety and tolerability for individual patients. Patient outcome data utilizing guided antidepressant selection vs. treatment as usual (TAU) will highlight the clinical application of PGx for individuals with major depression. The lecture will conclude with a discussion of opinions regarding patient selection for PGx in clinical psychiatry and whether PGx is ready for prime time.
