CYP2D6 and CYP2C19 genotyping in psychiatric patients on psychotropic medication in the former Dutch Antilles

0
Aim: This study was aimed to asses the prevalence of CYP2D6 and CYP2C19 polymorphisms in psychiatric patients and in volunteers from Dutch caribbean origin. Methods: In total, 435 individuals were genotyped for CYP2D6 and CYP2C19. Of these, 269 were psychiatric patients on psychotropic medication, living in Curaçao and 166 were volunteers from the Dutch Caribbean population. Results: No differences in prevalence of alleles were found. Conclusion: Although prevalence of alleles appeared to be very different from African and Caucasian populations, the distribution into predicted phenotypes shows an equal distribution as in Caucasians.
