Abstract

Personalized medicine comprises the genetic information together with the phenotypic and environmental factors to yield healthcare tailored to an individual and removes the limitations of the "one-size-fits-all" therapy approach. This provides the opportunity to translate therapies from bench to clinic, to diagnose and predict disease, and to improve patient-tailored treatments based on the unique signatures of a patient's disease and further to identify novel treatment schedules.
