Personalized medicine – the future of healthcare

Personalized medicine – the future of healthcare

Publish date: 2014-11-16

We are the witnesses of the paradigm shift in healthcare approach that is proceeding slowly but consequently closer to personalized medicine. The idea is to apply treatment that would be very specific for target patient, instead of using similar therapies for various people that may respond in a markedly different way.

Current healthcare systems are mainly based on the application of rather standard therapies for patients suffering from the same illness. When considering simple and common diseases, there is nothing bad in such approach. However, for more severe disorders that require sophisticated ways of treatment and are caused by genetic alterations e.g. cancers, it appears that universal therapies do not work well in all cases and their effects are dependent on mutations in particular genes and associated with them molecular aberrations.

Interestingly, it has been long time since physicians observed that individual clinical traits affect the response to the therapy in case of the same disease. In spite of this knowledge, the today’s medicine is still based on the model, in which patients diagnosed with the same disorder usually get the same drugs at the similar dose. Fortunately, the whole healthcare world is becoming more and more aware of differences among individuals. The initiative of Human Genome Project  and the robust development of genomics together with next generation sequencing technologies significantly accelerate a change of treatment approach. Neil Ross, the Marketing Manager for the Bioprocess division of GE Healthcare Lifescience, emphasizes that personalized medicine is the future of healthcare system.

An interest in personalized treatment approach will be substantially growing in the nearest years. The main factors triggering augmentation of the personalized medicine market include cost savings, stronger emphasis on early diagnosis, need of safer drugs and optimization of the whole treatment process. The major question is at what pace the shift towards targeted therapies will proceed. Time is of great importance for the whole Bio-industry, not only in terms of expenditures but also to provide needful therapies for numerous diseases that are still extremely hard to manage.

My name is Jessica Luis, and I base in USA...My life is back!!! After 1 years of Broken marriage, my husband left me with two kids . I felt like my life was about to end i almost committed suicide, i was emotionally down for a very long time. Thanks to a spell caster called Dr Mohammed, which i met online. On one faithful day, as I was browsing through the internet,I came across allot of testimonies about this particular spell caster. Some people testified that he brought their Ex lover back, some testified that he restores womb,cure cancer,and other sickness, some testified that he can cast a spell to stop divorce and so on. i also come across one particular testimony,it was about a woman called Sonia,she testified about how he brought back her Ex lover in less than 2 days, and at the end of her testimony she dropped Dr Mohammed's e-mail address. After reading all these,I decided to give it a try. I contacted him via email and explained my problem to him. In just 48hours, my husband came back to me.

'After being in relationship with Wilson for seven years,he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to someone online and she suggested that I should contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that don't believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I meant a spell caster called Dr Zuma zuk and I email him, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened, that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him, that was how we started living together happily again.
