Abstract:This project tested whether drugs are metabolized differently by people who have different genetic make-up. The theory of slow and rapid acetylators (presence of NAT1 and NAT2 genes) was confirmed by comparing changes in blood pressure before and after caffeine ingestion with individuals' perceptions of which gene they carried.
