Warfarin is a coumarin-like anticoagulant forming part of the class of drugs known as vitamin K antagonists. These drugs make it more difficult for blood to clump together, reducing the risk of thrombosis. Warfarin is prescribed following a heart attack, stroke or TIA, as well as to treat thrombosis and cardiac arrhythmia.

Warfarin and the benefit of DNA analysis

The rate at which warfarin is processed within your body varies from one individual to another. This means that the efficacy and side effects of warfarin can be predicted to some extent on the basis of your genes. DNA analysis can therefore be an important tool in optimising your medication.
