In the Clinic with Medical Genetics Summaries (MGS)

What are the Medical Genetics Summaries (MGS)?

Reviews that provide practical information about genetic testing to guide drug therapy. MGS synthesizes pharmacogenomic information from all available authoritative sources, such as FDA, professional practice guidelines and literature. NCBI Bookshelf: www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/books/NBK61999

Information useful in the clinic:

Therapeutic dosing recommendations by phenotype

Enzymatic activity status of significant alleles

Assignment of likely phenotype based on genotypes

Translation of terms in published literature with terms in the lab and clinic - allele nomenclature table harmonizes available synonymous allele names including HGVS, star allele, variant description from the literature, and dbSNP

MGS articles:

Abacavir Therapy and HLA-B*57:01 Genotype
Allopurinol Therapy and HLA-B*58:01 Genotype
Amitriptyline Therapy and CYP2D6 and CYP2C19 Genotype

NCBI has a suite of human genome resources that support the Precision Medicine Initiative by enabling ready access to accurate and up-to-date information to optimize individualized clinical care.

Clinicians can use MedGen (www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/medgen) to consider a differential diagnosis, find clinical, molecular, and research information about a condition or phenotype along with links to relevant information, and to find a suitable test in the NIH Genetic Testing Registry (GTR, www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/gtr) for specific genes or diseases.
