The topic of polymorphism in drug metabolizing enzymes and drug transporters with their impact on pharmacotherapy is of great interest. The clinical relevance depends on the vectorial movement, the therapeutic index of the substrates and inherent interindividual variability.1 With respect to the variability, various polymorphisms associated with the drug transporters have been reported that led to the alteration in the pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic profile of the drugs.2 Many preclinical and clinical studies have provided the evidence for the application of genetic information for the development of individualized therapies.3
