Pharmacogenetics is the study of genetically determined variations in response to drugs in humans or in laboratory organisms. Within the past decade, many advances have been made in understanding pharmacogenetics and dermatology. These range from the enzymes that metabolize dapsone and azathioprine to the numerous drug interactions that are enzyme based occurring with other immunosuppresants, antihistamines, antifungals, and antibiotics.
