Abstract

"Studies of children receiving warfarin have shown that body size is the major predictor of warfarin dose. However, polymorphisms in the key genes ... involved in the metabolism and action of warfarin are also responsible for a significant proportion of the interindividual variability in warfarin-dose requirement."
