Scientists have discovered a new use of genetics. They have recently found that genetics is capable of determining that whether a person will suffer from the side effects of painkilling opiates.
The research being taken out by group of researchers from the Stanford University has conducted the study and has found that genetics is capable of telling about the side effects of opiates, such as respiratory depression, nausea, and rashes.
Among all, nausea is the side effect, which can be generally picked up the genetics. Martin Angst, who is a professor of anesthesia in the Stanford University, was of the view that they have reached at an above given conclusion, after taking out study on animals.
Their genetic behavior was being studied and it was found that genetics can reveal about opiates reaction. "Our findings strongly encourage the use of downstream molecular genetics to identify patients who are more likely or less likely to benefit from these drugs", said Angst.
The study, which has found its place in the journal Anesthesiology, read that if the reaction of opiates could be known then it, will be easy for doctors to know about the level of opiates that can be given to patients.
