Oxcarbazepine Sensitivity
  

To avoid possible adverse reactions, this test has been recommended for patients who may be prescribed Carbamazepine and oxcarbazepine. Two HLA alleles are associated with adverse reactions to these drugs. The alleles are HLA B*15:02, which is more common in individuals of Asian descent, and HLA A*31:01, which is more common in individuals of European descent. This test evaluates the presence or absence of these alleles.
