rs1799853 is a SNP in the CYP2C9 gene and is linked to poor warfarin metabolism. Advanced knowledge of this may influence initial warfarin dosing by physicians. Warfarin is monitored through INR (international normalized ratio) and proper dosing is influenced by a variety of factors including warfarin metabolism and diet.[PMID 1305837]
rs1799853 is a SNP in the CYP2C9 gene. The rs1799853(T) allele encodes a variant amino acid, cysteine, which has been linked to poor metabolism of warfarin and thus sensitivity [PMID 15608560]. The common nomenclature for this polymorphism is CYP2C9*2 (Cys amino acid, T allele; the SNP is also known as C430T or Cys144Arg).
The CYP2C9*2 allele is also associated with higher sensitivity to the anti-epileptic drug phenytoin.
The effect of CYP2C9 variants on drug metabolism should not be predicted without also considering CYP2C9*3, defined as the common loss of function variant rs1057910(C)  (NM_000771:c.430C>T, NP_000762:p.144R>C) [PMID 8004131] .
Individuals carrying this SNP may show increased risk of developing acute gastrointestinal bleeding during the use of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) that are CYP2C8 or CYP2C9 substrates, such as aceclofenac, celecoxib, diclofenac, ibuprofen, indomethazine, lornoxicam, meloxicam, naproxen, piroxicam, tenoxicam and valdecoxib.[PMID 19422321]
