Webinar Recording: HOW TO USE TPMT AND NUDT15 PGX TO REDUCE THIOPURINES-RELATED ADVERSE REACTIONS

Summary of Webinar

Drs. Shannon Manzi and Gunter Scharer discuss how to use TPMT and NUDT15 pharmacogenetics (PGx) to guide thiopurines dosing and reduce adverse events. Dr. Sharer focuses on TPMT and NUDT15 testing and how to use the latest Clinical Pharmacogenetics Implementation Consortium (CPIC) guideline to improve thiopurines dosing. Dr. Manzi shares her hands-on experience on developing a team-based precision medicine program to improve patient care and reduce cost of care at Boston Children’s Hospital.
