Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
Pharmacogenomics is a fascinating field, which refers to the impact of multiple genes and specific genetic variations on drug pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics, which in turn can lead to clinically essential variations in efficacy, but also, in adverse drug reactions. Owing to the advances in genomics technology, particularly with the advent of whole genome sequencing approaches the field has witnessed significant progress over the last years, further supporting the efforts for precision medicine. Particularly for psychiatry, which involves chronic and severely disabling diseases, this is the most crucial, as well as a challenging, target. Until now, there are very few studies highlighting the clinical implementation of pharmacogenomics in psychiatry.
It seems therefore that the implementation of the present special issue, focusing on advances on psychiatric pharmacogenomics, and highlighting pioneering and fruitful research is well-timed and highly expected. We firmly believe that such a special issue will contribute to the field by reviewing and presenting the latest and groundbreaking findings and will help disseminate valuable knowledge and insights to the researcher as well as the clinician. The articles that will be published should deal with, but may not be limited to, the following topics:
- Pharmacogenomics of antidepressants
- Pharmacogenomics of antipsychotics
- Pharmacogenomics of mood stabilizers
- Pharmacogenomics of adverse drug reactions in psychiatry
- Implementation of pharmacogenomics in clinical practice – attitudes, barriers, perspectives, costs
- Clinical decision support tools in pharmacogenomics with emphasis in psychiatry
