Molecular medicine and Personalized Healthcare

Molecular medicine (the applications of DNA knowledge to medical practice) has moved into the genomics era with the promise that personalized medical care will now be greatly enhanced, including the options for more effective prevention and the development of new therapies targeted to molecular defects. At the same time, the traditional health professional-patient interaction is being challenged by the growth of Internet-based direct-to-consumer DNA testing and counseling. The increasing internationalization of genomic research has led to the development of more effective approaches to studying complex multifactorial genetic disorders, while at the same time highlighting new challenges in ethical, legal and social issues. In this complex environment, students and a wide range of health professionals need to keep abreast of new developments (often driven by the public, media or the Internet) while not necessarily having the opportunity or time to understand the basics.

Personalized healthcare refers specifically to the use of genetics and genomics. An example of that medicine includes the uses of specific tumor markers to guide therapy for breast cancer. We view personalized healthcare as a broader platform that includes genetics and genomics but also includes any other biologic information that helps predict risk for disease or how a patient will respond to treatments. Most genetic disorders are quite rare and affect one person in every several thousands or millions. Molecular and Cellular Therapies is the cellular modifications at the molecular level. Take the chemotherapy in oncology for example, it aims to kill the cell by delivering toxic agents to the cell, while Molecular therapies could aim to terminate the cellular division without necessarily killing the cell, such as aiming to reach senescence whose therapeutic procedure, levels of toxic agents, and tools for delivering the toxicity could all be very different from simply killing the cell. Physicians specializing in internal medicine are called internists or physicians (without a modifier) in Commonwealth nations.
