Codeine intoxication associated with ultrarapid CYP2D6 metabolism. Gasche Y, Daali Y, Fathi M, Chiappe A, Cottini S, Dayer P, Desmeules J. Erratum in N Engl.

Life-threatening opioid intoxication developed in a patient after he was given small doses of codeine for the treatment of a cough associated with bilateral pneumonia. Codeine is bioactivated by CYP2D6 into morphine, which then undergoes further glucuronidation. CYP2D6 genotyping showed that the patient had three or more functional alleles, a finding consistent with ultrarapid metabolism of codeine. We attribute the toxicity to this genotype, in combination with inhibition of CYP3A4 activity by other medications and a transient reduction in renal function.

Codeine has little therapeutic effect in patients who are CYP2D6 poor data specific for codeine metabolism (Supplementary Table S6 online).

There is substantial evidence linking CYP2D6 genotype to variability in codeine efficacy and toxicity (see Supplementary Table S6 online). Decreased codeine analgesia has been observed in poor metabolizers, whereas severe or life-threatening toxicity after normal doses of codeine has been documented in ultrarapid metabolizers. This body of evidence, rather than randomized clinical trials involving pharmacogenetic testing, provides the basis of the therapeutic recommendations in Table 2.

The combination of alleles is used to determine a patient’s diplotype.

Life as an ultrarapid CYP2D6 metabolizer Synthetic Remarks

One of the most classic CYP2D6 substrates is codeine, an opiate liver tries to do is breaking it down via so called first-passage metabolism (if.

These gene tests seem to be gaining popularity, so there is hope for us UMs although, I don’t like the side effects from the super high doses that are necessary… I may need to stick with natural remedies… and do like I have done all my life, just don’t get sick and or have a super high tolerance to pain and learn to live with it, in lieu of being called a drug monger, or addict. Even the dentists have called me a lier, saying there is “no way” you still feel that… Honestly, why would I lie to the dentist? It would have been nice to have these test results to stick in the A** H*** nurses face after I woke up the morning after a serious car accident from which I had a compound fracture repaired the night before.

For some of these medications, it is not absoluy clear what changes in dosing should be driven by CYP2D6 genotype; in this study, we will build up the “rules” to decide which medications to link to the priority genotypes. Over 100 known differences exist in the gene for CYP2D6. These differences in the CYP2D6 gene lead to the production of an enzyme that ranges from compley inactive to overactive. A system designed to classify patients into 4 genotype metabolizer categories based on the ability of their CYP2D6 to break down drugs is used by clinicians to help guide drug therapy decisions. Priority genotypes.

Routine genotypes. We do not routinely adjust medicine doses based on the following genotypes, except in rare instances:

CYP2D6 is an enzyme that is responsible for breaking down (metabolizing) many of the drugs that are commonly used today. Some medications, such as codeine, require activation by CYP2D6 in order for the medication to be effective. Other drugs, such as tricyclic antidepressants (e.g., amitriptyline and imipramine), are metabolized to forms that are not active and are more easily eliminated from the body. There are many other medications that may be affected by CYP2D6 (see this link http://www.pharmgkb.org/search/annotatedGene/cyp2d6/index.jsp ).
