Each patient is unique. What if their treatment path was too? That possibility is at the core of precision medicine.
J. Eugene Huffstutter, MD
Precision medicine allows patients to receive treatment based on their personal, genetic makeup. It is commonly associated with oncology, where therapies can address patients’ genetic biomarkers rather than just the location of their tumor. This personalized approach has already improved cancer care. Now, it has the potential to change how other diseases are treated too.
