Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Personalized medicine or PM is a medical model that proposes the customization of healthcare - with medical decisions, practices, and/or products being tailored to the individual patient. In this model, diagnostic testing is often employed for selecting appropriate and optimal therapies based on the context of a patient’s genetic content or other molecular or cellular analysis. The use of genetic information has played a major role in certain aspects of personalized medicine (e.g. pharmacogenomics), and the term was first coined in the context of genetics, though it has since broadened to encompass all sorts of personalization measures

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.

I need a more detailed answer. I understand the definition of PM and proteomics. I need more about biomarkers, cancer patients or Alzheimer patients.
