Preparing for Precision Medicine – World Economic Forum – 15 November 2012

“Personalized medicine is the combination of established clinical parameters with emerging molecular information to generate preventative, diagnostic and therapeutic solutions that are tailored to each patient’s needs. Personalized approaches facilitate more precise healthcare deliver and have the potential to improve outcomes while reducing waste of resources and delivering significant other benefits. Assuring a smooth transition will depend on establishing frameworks for regulating, compiling and interpreting the influx of information that can keep pace with rapid scientific developments.”

“WASHINGTON — A new data network that integrates emerging research on the molecular makeup of diseases with clinical data on individual patients could drive the development of a more accurate classification of disease and ultimately enhance diagnosis and treatment, says a new report from the National Research Council.  The “new taxonomy” that emerges would define diseases by their underlying molecular causes and other factors in addition to their traditional physical signs and symptoms.  The report adds that the new data network could also improve biomedical research by enabling scientists to access patients’ information during treatment while still protecting their rights.  This would allow the marriage of molecular research and clinical data at the point of care, as opposed to research information continuing to reside primarily in academia.”
