Date:5/21/2009

Field Moving Toward Genotype-Guided Psychotropic Therapy

SAN FRANCISCO, May 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Gualberto Ruano, M.D., Ph.D., President of Genomas, and Director of Genetics Research at Hartford Hospital and Simon Kung, M.D., Assistant Professor of Psychiatry at the Mayo Clinic will co-chair a symposium, "Emerging Clinical Applications of Genotype-Guided Psychotropics for Depressive Disorders," at the annual meeting of the American Psychiatric Association.

"Genotyping is at a point where it could be used to help guide therapeutic choices," said the Mayo Clinic's Dr. Kung. "It's fitting that Mayo Clinic, Genomas and Institute of Living/Hartford Hospital partnered on today's symposium since these institutions are among the true innovators in delivering personalized medicine to patients."

Papers presented at today's symposium were:
