Phenprocoumon and the enzyme VKORC1
Phenprocoumon is processed within the body primarily by the enzyme VKORC1. The activity of this enzyme can vary considerably depending on your genetic predisposition, which means the efficacy of phenprocoumon can also differ from person to person.
Information about your genetic predisposition may therefore provide grounds for extra vigilance in relation to the effectiveness of the treatment, for adjustment of the dose or for more frequent checks by the thrombosis clinic.
