The Genetics Informatics Trial (GIFT) examined the potential benefits of using genotype information to personalize the dosing of warfarin therapy in patients undergoing elective hip or knee replacement surgery. Previous trials have not consistently shown that genotype-guided warfarin dosing is beneficial. Dr. Paul Solinsky reviews the methods and results of the GIFT Trial and our panelists, Dr. Daniel Witt and Dr. Edith Nutescu, discuss the study implications.
