Overview

Personalized medicine involves the study of human diseases at molecular level, pairing the advances in molecular diagnostics, along with genomics based drug development. Particular treatment design according to the individual's genome and epigenome is the goal.
As the aging population grows and seeks more services for disease screening, diagnosis and monitoring, the demand for novel life sciences tools increases.

Importance

•Personalized medicine (PM) aims to characterize disease at different levels and evolution stages to target specific genes or molecular pathways.
•Miniaturized, wireless, implantable sensors, are finding increased opportunities to more conveniently provide real-time information about a patient's condition.
•Omics-based technologies have revolutionized life sciences research and biomedical engineering, by generating huge amounts of information.
•Important efforts are being conducted toward becoming this information in valuable insights for clinical and biomedical routine tools for early diagnostics and prognostics.

Year of Impact

•Personalized medicine involves an evolving challenge from part of a broad spectrum of fields of research covering both sciences traditionally contributing to medicine and healthcare advances, such as genetics, biology, and pharmacology, and their -omics related fields, that is, proteomics, transcriptomics, metabonomics, and so on.
•More recently contributing sciences, such as bioinformatics, robotics, nanobiotechnology, mechatronics, and biomics, also play a critical role in the impact of personalized medicine in the human health.
•A solid convergence of these technologies is expected by 2016 for commercialization and 2018 for wide scale adoption.

Technical Background

Technology Overview
•Personalized medicine (PM) deeply digs inside the study of human diseases at molecular level, pairing the advances in molecular diagnostics, as well as, genomics based drug development. The aim of PM is to harmonize the relation between treatment and patient, taking into consideration the individual variations that lead to a specific behavior and drug response, could even involve the particular treatment design according to the individual genotype among other features.
•Toward this concept, coined terms as stratified medicine and integrated healthcare attempt to cover developments in genomics-based personalized medicines for different clusters, predisposition testing, preventive medicine, combination of diagnostics with therapeutics, and monitoring of therapy.
•A new vision attempting to avoid costly and prolonged trial and error approaches, while precluding treatment side effects, in conjunction with significant gain time, is being achieved.

Applications
•Personalized diagnostics and therapeutics
•Response drug evaluation and screening for new, more specific molecular entities
•Facing rare disease challenges for novel solutions
•Addressing autoimmune and inflammatory diseases therapies

Key Strengths
•Attrition rate, risk, cost and time reduction
•Use of virtual clinical trials and more caution experimental design for stratified groups
•Holistic view of human health
•New niches for molecular entities
