Following is a digest of pharmacogenomics journal articles pertaining to neurology. The SNP•its editorial team selects articles for inclusion based on clinical relevance and scientific validity. Journal articles that are most readily applicable and relevant to practicing clinicians are selected for a SNP•its Study Summary, which discusses findings and clinical implications of a pharmacogenomics study in the context of the larger evidence base.
