Better explained, than shown on the TV news, or Doctor Talk Shows, is the real science reason for Angelina Jolies’s reason for her surgeries.
On the forefront of future Medical Practise is Personalized Medicine. Also referred to as Precsion Medicine.
Drug Discovery, and application of newer therapeutics, has lacked a true application of the patient’s genome. Pharmacogenomics is essentially a base line (patient genome), and a particular therapeutic agent to solve a particular disease state.
There are vast Libraries of compounds, collected, and collated to cure disease.
All of this starts with patient testing. Searching for Genes is the answer. The best examples are the Her1/Her2, and BRCA1/BRACA2 genes. If found, a determination is made for therapy, or surgery. All of this starts with Molecular Diagnostics.
This avoids the roughshod application of needless therapies.
We hope these videos show / give a better understanding of the future of medical practice. It all starts in the lab. The one greatest achievement was with the development of the Polymerase Chain Reaction, by the Nobel Prize winning Kay Mullis. Dr. Mullis is not without controversy.
In the fields of Molecular Diagnostics, we in the field, had hoped, this all would have been brought to fruition, in the year 2000.
We hope you enjoy the videos, as an educational source.
