Abstract: A poster presentation regarding SLCO1B1 genetic polymorphisms in cardiac patients on simvastatin. Introduction: The SLCO1B1 rs4149056 c.521T>C gene variant is associated with higher serum simvastatin concentrations and increased risk of simvastatin-induced myopathy. Aim: To classify a cohort of cardiac patients on simvastatin according to SLCO1B1 genotype, SLCO1B1 function and myopathy risk.
