Venue: Mikiel Anton Vassalli Conference Centre, Gateway Building, Hall E, University of Malta
Date:

Time:

Patient to patient variability in the response to drugs, is a well known problem in the optimization of pharmacological management strategies.  Such variability occurs both in therapeutic outcomes as well as in the occurrence and severity of adverse reactions.

Global advances in genetic research, have revealed inherited genetic variations which significantly contribute to this drug response variability.  Pharmacogenomic-based testing is a fast evolving clinical tool, which aims to streamline drug treatment, by offering ways to predict the response to a specific drug in a specific patient prior to actual clinical administration.

This conference will bring together a team of international and local speakers, and will present the way forward in this fast developing field.

Accreditation is being provided by Maltese Medical and Pharmaceutical professional associations, and points are being awarded for continuing professional development programmes.  Members of respective associations will receive details by email.
