Genomic medicine: challenges and opportunities for physicians
Medicine has always striven to personalise or stratify approaches towards individual patients, but recently these terms have been applied particularly to denote improved disease sub-classification achieved through new genetic and genomic technologies. Techniques to analyse a person's genetic code have improved in sensitivity exponentially over recent years and at the same time the cost of such analyses has become affordable to routine NHS care. This article highlights the significant opportunities that genomics brings to healthcare, as well as some of the practical and ethical challenges

Abstract

Medicine has always striven to personalise or stratify approaches towards individual patients, but recently these terms have been applied particularly to denote improved disease sub-classification achieved through new genetic and genomic technologies. Techniques to analyse a person's genetic code have improved in sensitivity exponentially over recent years and at the same time the cost of such analyses has become affordable to routine NHS care. This article highlights the significant opportunities that genomics brings to healthcare, as well as some of the practical and ethical challenges
