NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – The International Serious Adverse Events Consortium said last week that it will collaborate with electronic medical records provider Cerner on identifying genetic markers to help predict individuals who are at risk for a range of serious drug-related adverse events. image

The consortium, which was founded a year ago, said it will explore the feasibility of diversifying its methods for developing serious adverse event research cohorts.

The alliance with Cerner will focus on three SAEs: hepatoxicity, serious skin rashes, and cardiac dysfunctions, such as prolonged QT.
