Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to explore how knowing genes that individuals inherit from their parents can make warfarin dosing more safe and effective. This study is being done to determine whether providing doctors with data on the genes their patients inherited and warfarin dosing recommendations based on those genes affects the costs and outcomes of care and after hospitalization for patients from different ethnic/racial backgrounds, and how physicians use this information in decision making.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Blood Coagulation Disorders Drug: Warfarin Phase 4

Detailed Description:

The overall goal of this project is to develop and assess the effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of strategies that use genetic testing in the management of anticoagulation among racially diverse hospitalized patients. The project has four specific aims.

Aim 1: To contribute patients initiating therapy at the University of Chicago Medical Center (UCMC) and affiliated hospitals to a genetic registry of a racially diverse set of patients undergoing warfarin therapy.

Aim 2: To perform a randomized trial to determine the efficacy, costs and cost-effectiveness of existing pharmacogenetic algorithms for the management of warfarin therapy among hospitalized patients of all races.

Aim 3: To develop clinical pharmacogenetic algorithms for the management of warfarin therapy among hospitalized African American patients.

Aim 4: To perform a randomized trial to determine and compare the efficacy, costs and cost-effectiveness of existing clinical and non-racially tailored pharmacogenetic algorithms to racially tailored pharmacogenetic algorithms for the management of warfarin therapy among hospitalized African American patients.
