“Doctors have always recognized that every patient is chất lượng, và doctors have sầu always tried to tailor their treatments as best they can khổng lồ individuals. You can match a blood transfusion to lớn a blood type — that was an important discovery. What if matching a cancer cure lớn our genetic code was just as easy, just as standard? What if figuring out the right dose of medicine was as simple as taking our temperature?”- President Obama, January 30, 2015

It"s health care tailored khổng lồ you.

In his năm ngoái State of the Union address, President Obama announced that he"s launching the Precision Medicine Initiative sầu — a bold new retìm kiếm effort to lớn revolutionize how we improve sầu health và treat disease.

Until now, most medical treatments have been designed for the “average patient.” As a result of this “one-size-fits-all” approach, treatments can be very successful for some patients but not for others. Precision Medicine, on the other hand, is an innovative sầu approach that takes inkhổng lồ account individual differences in people’s genes, environments, and lifestyles. It gives medical professionals the resources they need to lớn target the specific treatments of the illnesses we encounter, further develops our scientific and medical research, & keeps our families healthier.

Advances in Precision Medicine have sầu already led lớn powerful new discoveries and several new treatments that are tailored lớn specific characteristics, such as a person’s genetic makeup, or the genetic profile of an individual’s tumor. This is helping transkhung the way we can treat diseases such as cancer: Patients with breast, lung, and colorectal cancers, as well as melanomas & leukemias, for instance, routinely undergo molecular testing as part of patient care, enabling physicians to select treatments that improve sầu chances of survival và reduce exposure khổng lồ adverse effects.

And we’re committed to lớn protecting your privacy every step of the way. The White House nhà trắng is working with the Department of Health and Human Services and other federal agencies to lớn solicit đầu vào from patient groups, bioethicists, privacy và civil liberties advocates, technologists, và other experts, lớn help identify and address any legal and technical issues related khổng lồ the privacy and security of data in the context of Precision Medicine.

Mission statement:

To enable a new era of medicine through research, technology, & policies that empower patients, researchers, & providers khổng lồ work together toward development of individualized care.

The future of precision medicine will enable health care providers khổng lồ tailor treatment & prevention strategies to people’s chất lượng characteristics, including their genome sequence, microbiome composition, health history, lifestyle, and diet. To get there, we need to incorporate many different types of data, from metabolomics (the chemicals in the body at a certain point in time), the microbiome (the collection of microorganisms in or on the body), và data about the patient collected by health care providers & the patients themselves. Success will require that health data is portable, that it can be easily shared between providers, researchers, & most importantly, patients & retìm kiếm participants.

Agencies across the Federal government are doing important work khổng lồ support the President’s vision. This is an “all of government” effort, leveraging the unique expertise và history of each agency lớn carry forward the President’s vision of individualized treatments for every American. Here’s how each participating agency is moving ahead to lớn implement PMI:
