Personalised medicine moving closer through genome analysis

A scientist has brought the holy grail of personalised medicine a step closer after having all his DNA screened for diseases and susceptibility to treatments. Professor Stephen Quake, at Stanford University, spent £33,000 having his genetic make up mapped and then analysed for different diseases and sensitivity to medication. The results, which revealed risks of heart disease, diabetes and prostate cancer, could pave the way to similar tests for the general public within the next decade, especially as the cost of genetic mapping is expected to plummet. Professor Quake, said: “We’re at the dawn of a new age of genomics. Information like this will enable doctors to deliver personalised health care like never before.”
