Personalised Medicine : an international Action Plan published
Personalised medicine is an innovative method to treat patients that uses research, data and cutting-edge technology in providing better diagnostics and follow-up. It facilitates more personalised health interventions for citizens and offers tailored therapies and treatments for patients. The full potential of personalised medicine cannot be achieved due to several barriers and challenges. To boost personalised medicine, the International Consortium of Personalized Medicine (ICPerMed) has recently published a consensus view on the research and development needed in order to further advance personalised medicine.
