CYP2C9 - responsible for 10% of variation in dose, Caucasians


What are the pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic interactions of Warfarin. What disease states are affected?

Pharmacokinetic - CYP enzyme indiction/inhibiton, reduced plasma protein binding.
Pharmacodynamic - synergism with other antithrombotic drugs, competitive antagonism (vitK reverses it), clotting factor concentration (diuretics).
Disease states - liver disease (reduced clotting factor synthesis) and thyroid status.
