Today we will talk about personalized medicine. Drug discovery becomes more intelligent. The nice example of this tendency is personalized medicine. Knowing a lot about human genome about sequences and what particular genes are related with some special diseases or conditions is personalized medicine. The best example is women which have BRCA1 or BRCA2 mutation. They will develop breast of ovarian cancer in 50 per cent of cases. If we knew that a woman had that kind of mutation we could prevent the development of the disease. Another case of personalized medicine is when you treat a patient and if you knew that some treatment has not so good pharmacokinetic profile with some SEAP mutation in that particular patient you will give that patient another treatment or another drug.
To sum up personalized medicine is a particular approach to every person.
