Personalized medicine is the use of new methods of molecular analysis to better manage a patient’s disease or predisposition toward a disease. It aims to achieve optimal medical outcomes by helping physicians and patients choose the disease management approaches likely to work best in the context of the patient’s unique genetic and environmental profile. Such approaches may include genetic screening programs that more precisely diagnose diseases and their sub-types,
or help physicians select the type and dose of medication best suited to a certain group of patients.
People vary from one another in many ways — what they eat, the types and amount of stress they experience, exposure
to environmental factors, and their DNA. Many of these variations play a role in health and disease. For example, the
natural variations found in our genes could influence our risk of developing a certain disease, and the degree to which
it progresses. Variations in several genes can influence how well a patient might respond to a particular drug ….
