Clinical Study Shows Benefits of Using Pharmacogenetics among Statin Users

Researchers at the VA Boston Healthcare System, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, and Harvard Medical School conducted a randomized controlled trial of pharmacogenetic testing related to statins, such as atorvastatin and simvastatin, which are used by millions of Americans to lower the risk of heart attack and stroke. However, in rare cases, patients might experience muscle damage from statins, which can sometimes be serious and life-threatening.
