An ethnic group is defined as a group of people who identify with each other based on intrinsic factors, such as genetic similarities due to common ancestry, and extrinsic factors, such as shared cultural experiences or environment. Therefore, one’s ethnicity is a fundamental aspect of life that defines a person, and that differentiates that person from others.
Ethnic differences have become important in the field of clinical drug development because they may impact the absorption, distribution, metabolism, or excretion (ADME) of drugs, and may be relevant to an understanding of a drug’s efficacy and safety.
