The same applies for leukotriene receptor antagonists, we know we can look at the receptor, and to determine how well they would respond to a drug. And the same with a steroid receptor – we can see to this receptor, depending on the genotype of this receptor – we can determine whether it would be a good responder to this drug or have a poor responder.
