According to Burroughs et al. [6], three processes or mechanisms are involved in the polymorphisms–drug response interaction, namely drug metabolism, drug targets, and disease pathway. However, polymorphisms in drug metabolism are usually considered the most relevant because of their recurrence in many important therapeutic classes. This is especially true in comparison with the other two mechanisms, which may affect only one drug or one class of drugs [6]. Polymorphisms of drug metabolism can influence individual response to drug therapy as a result of highly variable plasma concentrations of the parent compound or its metabolites [15].
