Influence of pharmacogenomics on antiemetic response and efficacy

Briefly describe your research question :

Does CYP2D6 genotype influence ondansetron efficacy and/or toxicity?  For example, do patients with a CYP2D6 ultra-rapid metabolizer phenotype experience more treatment failure?  Do patients with intermediate or poor metabolizer phenotype experience greater toxicity (e.g., QT prolongation, headache, constipation).
