Genomas has identified two gene variants associated with patient muscle damage resulting from statin treatment, the company said this week.

Genomas is developing a multi-gene test involving one risk-related SNP in each of the two genes — nitric oxide synthase and angiotensin II receptor-1 — that "interprets the risk that each of the factors conveys for the patient" by using an algorithm that assigns weight to each factor, Gualberto Ruaño, the firm's CEO, told Pharmacogenomics Reporter this week.
