Tutor description

First what is personalized medicine? Well, personalized medicine involves the ability of physicians to treat patients based on their own unique genetic makeup. Pharmacogenomics is a part of this exciting new field of medicine. Researchers working in pharmacogenomics focus on the link between genomic variation and pharmacological properties. Then Pharmacogenomics is the branch of pharmacology which deals with the influence of genetic variation on drug response in patients by correlating gene expression or single-nucleotide polymorphisms with a drug's efficacy or toxicity.

Well, personalized medicine involves the ability of physicians to treat patients based on their own unique genetic makeup. Pharmacogenomics is a part of this exciting new field of medicine. Researchers working in pharmacogenomics focus on the link between genomic variation and pharmacological properties. Then Pharmacogenomics is the branch of pharmacology which deals with the influence of genetic variation on drug response in patients by correlating gene expression or single-nucleotide polymorphisms with a drug's efficacy or toxicity. By doing so, pharmacogenomics aims to develop a rational means to optimize drug therapy, with respect to the patients' genotype, to ensure maximum efficacy with minimal adverse effects. Such approaches promise the advent of "personalized medicine"; in which drugs and drug combinations are optimized for each individual's unique genetic makeup. Here is a benefit to personalized medicine and it will lead to genetic testing for common conditions and their treatments or cures. The cure
