I am pleased to share with you the official release of my updated eBook, “Precision Medicine“.
Almost 2,500 years ago, Hippocrates captured one of the key principles underlying precision medicine. In the 21st century, we take an 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. It is now 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 globally. This eBook will discuss the components that will facilitate the power of precision medicine.
