Non-communicable disease prevention / Prévention des maladies non transmissibles Community Partners / Partenaire communautaire; Researcher / Chercheur; Other / Autre: Service Provider Unfortunately, there have been very few studies on variations in the liver enzymes of the Indigenous people in Canada. It is difficult to draw any clear inferences about how these populations might be expected to respond to drugs in relation to other racial or ethnic groups. Collaborative partnerships between Indigenous communities and researchers are needed to avail the clinical benefits of Pharmacogenetic testing to Indigenous populations.
