DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets has announced the addition of Jain PharmaBiotech's new report "Personalized Medicine - Scientific and Commercial Aspects" to their offering.
The aim of personalized medicine or individualized treatment is to match the right drug to the right patient and, in some cases, even to design the appropriate treatment for a patient according to his/her genotype. This report describes the latest concepts of development of personalized medicine based on pharmacogenomics, pharmacogenetics, pharmacoproteomics, and metabolomics. Basic technologies of molecular diagnostics play an important role, particularly those for single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) genotyping.
Biomarkers play an important role in personalized medicine. Diagnosis is integrated with therapy for selection of treatment as well for monitoring the results. There is emphasis on early detection and prevention of disease in modern medicine. Biochip/microarray technologies and next generation sequencing are also important. The concept of personalized medicine described in this report remains remains the best way to integrate new technologies such as nanobiotechnology for improving healthcare. Finally bioinformatics is needed to analyze the immense amount of data generated by various technologies.
Various technologies are integrated to develop personalized therapies for specific therapeutic areas described in the report. Examples of this are genotyping for drug resistance in HIV infection, personalized therapy of cancer, antipsychotics for schizophrenia, antidepressant therapy, antihypertensive therapy and personalized approach to neurological disorders. Although genotyping is not yet a part of clinically accepted routine, it is expected to have this status by the year 2020.
Profiles of 320 companies involved in developing technologies for personalized medicines, along with 584 collaborations are included in the part II of the report. Finally the bibliography contains over 750 selected publications cited in the report.The report is supplemented by 80 tables and 38 figures.
