Recommendation: Guidelines for genotype-based dosing are published by the Clinical Pharmacogenetics Implementation
Consortium (CPIC) and can be found at: https://cpicpgx.org/ and https://www.pharmgkb.org/

Characteristics: The cytochrome P450 (CYP) Isozyme 2C19 is involved in the metabolism of many drugs. Variants in the gene that code for CYP2C19 will influence pharmacokinetics of CYP2C19 substrates, and may predict or explain non- standard dose requirements, therapeutic failure or adverse reactions

Inheritance: Autosomal codominant

Cause: CYP2C19 gene variants affect enzyme function

Variants Tested: (Variants are numbered according to NM_000769 transcript)
*1: Indicative of no detected targeted variants and an assumption of functional allele. No variants detected is predictive of the *1 functional allele

CYP2C19*2: rs4244285, c.681G>A; rs12769205, c.332-23A>G
CYP2C19*3: rs4986893, c.636G>A
CYP2C19*4A: rs28399504, c.1A>G
CYP2C19*4B: rs28399504, c.1A>G; rs12248560, c.-806C>T
CYP2C19*5: rs56337013, c.1297C>T
CYP2C19*6: rs72552267, c.395G>A
CYP2C19*7: rs72558186, c.819+2T>A
CYP2C19*8: rs41291556, c.358T>C
CYP2C19*9: rs17884712, c. 431G>A
CYP2C19*17: rs12248560, c.-806C>T
CYP2C19*35: rs12769205, c.332-23A>G
Clinical Sensitivity: Drug-dependent

Methodology: Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and fluorescence monitoring

Analytical Sensitivity and Specificity: Greater than 99 percent

Limitations: Only the targeted CYP2C19 variants will be detected by this panel, and assumptions about phase and content are made to assign alleles. Publicly available sources such as the www.pharmvar.org or www.pharmgkb.org provide guidance on phenotype predictions and allele frequencies. Diagnostic errors can occur due to rare sequence variations. Risk of therapeutic failure or adverse reactions with CYP2C19 substrates may be affected by genetic and non-genetic factors that are not detected by this test. This result does not replace the need for therapeutic drug or clinical monitoring
