4 reasons why personalised medicine matters to you

Advances in DNA sequencing have paved the way for personalised medicine – a new era in disease management that allows doctors to tailor treatment to individual patients.

Here are four reasons why personalised medicine, also known as pharmacogenomics, matters to you:

  1. It allows tailoring of treatment types to genomes to determine the best drug dose for individual patients who have undergone screening for genetic diseases.
  2. It explains why two patients might have the same diagnosis, the same disease and the same treatment, but one will respond to the treatment while the other one won't.
