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.
What is a Biomarker and why does it matter?
by Maria Mastrangelopoulou
There are different types of biomarkers including diagnostic which determine the presence and type of disease, prognostic which gives information on the patient’s overall disease outcome with or without standard treatment, or predictive which help to identify which treatment the patient is most likely to respond to or benefit from.
