Abstract

Personalized medicine is gaining momentum in healthcare by allowing physicians to determine an individual's predisposition to different diseases and to better diagnose and treat those diseases. Personalized medicine is frequently described as the right drug for the right patient at the right time; that is, a physician will prescribe treatment based on the individual characteristics of each patient such that the patient is likely to respond to a particular treatment with minimal adverse events. The heterogeneity of cancer makes the implementation of personalized medicine a necessity.
