after neutropenia clinical interest. CYP2D6 catalyzes the conversion of the prodrug codeine to morphine. Poor metabolizers, who typically carry null alleles of CYP2D6, found in as many as 6% of Caucasians,29 do not obtain pain relief from ingestion of codeine.31 CYP2D6 ultrarapid metabolizers have an enhanced capacity to metabolize codeine to morphine and hence may exhibit an exaggerated response
