What is Personalised medicine, and how it is different from conventional therapy?
by Pegah Abdollahi
Just because two individuals are diagnosed with the same disease, it does not mean they should be treated in the same way, a concept known as personalised medicine. Personalised medicine, also referred to as precision medicine, is an emerging approach that uses an individual’s biologic profile (e.g., genetic, protein) to guide decision-making with regards to disease treatment, diagnosis, and prevention.
Clinical Trials: What are they and why are there “phases” to trials?
by John Stacy
Clinical trials differ from “pre-clinical” studies in that they involve human subjects. Often trials test new drugs, new combinations of drugs, new medical devices or surgical methods. They can also be designed to find new ways to use existing treatments or how to change behaviours to improve health quality of life.

by Maria Mastrangelopoulou
Examples of biomarkers include everything from blood pressure and heart rate to MRI findings to complex histologic and genetic tests in blood, other body fluids, or tissues that serves as an indicator of a particular physiological state. A biomarker’s detection may be a sign of a normal or abnormal process, or of a condition or disease.
