Personalized Medicine

Q: What is personalized medicine?

A: Personalized Medicine is a modality to design a customized treatment for each patient using molecular (DNA) analysis. This is a new concept of medicine. I believe this will be quickly integrated into our day-to-day practice.

I feel that personalized medicine is particularly important for designing treatment for conditions in which genetic basis plays an important role. Personalized medicine should be applied to Wolfram syndrome.
