Being its largest to date with 5,230 participants from 18 trials, the study “Genotype‐guided warfarin dosing vs. conventional dosing strategies: a systematic review and meta‐analysis of randomized controlled trials” finds that genotype-guided dosing of the commonly prescribed anticoagulant medication offers better safety with less bleeding compared with conventional dosing strategies.
