CPIC Guidelines

For a complete and up-to-date list of PGx guidelines published by the Clinical Pharmacogenetics Implementation Consortium (CPIC), visit: CPIC guidelines

  • CPIC is a joint effort between the PGRN and PharmGKB
  • CPIC guidelines are designed to help clinicians understand HOW available genetic test results should be used to optimize drug therapy, rather than WHETHER tests should be ordered.
  • A key assumption underlying the CPIC guidelines is that clinical high-throughput and pre-emptive (pre-prescription) genotyping will become more widespread, and that clinicians will be faced with having patients’ genotypes available even if they have not explicitly ordered a test with a specific drug in mind.
  • Each guideline is published in Clinical Pharmacology and Therapeutics and on https://CPICpgx.org/
