Patients' questions about METHYLOMIC

This is considered personalized medicine. What exactly is that?

Wouter de Jonge, professor of Experimental Gastroenterology, Amsterdam UMC:

Personalized medicine is an approach based on the fact that each patient is different and therefore needs their own personal treatment. There is no one-size-fits-all solution that will work for everybody. Instead, it focuses on customizing medical care to meet the unique needs of each individual, ultimately improving the effectiveness and safety of medical therapy. Personalized medicine takes into account various elements, including a patient’s genetic code, lifestyle, environment, and personal health history. By carefully analyzing these factors, healthcare providers can make more informed decisions about therapeutic options.
