Prioritization of CPIC Guidelines

Prioritizing the order of writing guidelines for CPIC genes/drugs is based on the following criteria:

  • Is there prescribing actionability?
  • What is the severity of the clinical consequences (adverse effects, lack of response) if genetics are not used to inform prescribing?
  • Is the gene already subject to other CPIC guidelines?
  • Is there an available genetic test for that gene?
  • How commonly used are the affected drugs?
  • How common are the high-risk genetic variants?
  • Is there mention of genetic testing in drug labelling?
  • Are there pharmacogenetically-based prescribing recommendations from professional organizations or others?
