Abstract

Personalized medicine provide to physicians a molecular makeup of each patient. Looking at the patient on this level helps the physician get a profile of the patient's genetic distinction, or mapping. By investigating this genetic profile, medical professionals are then able to select patients, and use the found information to plan out a course of treatment that is much more in step with the way their body works. Personalize medicine is a direct extension of the genomic medicine that use genetic information to prevent or treat disease in adults or their children.
