Precision Medicine eBook
"It's far more important to know what person the disease has than what disease the person has."
— Hippocrates (460 BC ? 370 BC)
Almost 2,500 years ago, Hippocrates captured one of the key principles underlying precision medicine. In the 21st century we take the understanding of the individual characteristics of a person to a new level. By leveraging information about an individual's genome we are able to increase the effectiveness of medical treatments. The goal is to have more successful outcomes by providing targeted therapies.
The cost of sequencing a genome has dramatically dropped since the first draft of the human genome sequence was published in 2001. This is a key enabler. Now, it is very much in reach for a wide range of patients to receive a gene panel analysis or even a whole exome/genome analysis. But there is more that is required. Through a collaborative effort between clinicians, pharma companies, scientists and regulatory agencies, we are working on a new framework for standard care on a global basis.
This eBook will cover:
