Personalized medicine (PM) is the cornerstone of medical practice. This approach tailors treatments for specific conditions of the affected individual. The limitations of personalized medicine are defined by available technology and our understanding of the biology, physiology, and pathology of various conditions. Recent advances in technology have provided physicians with the tools needed to investigate the molecular composition of disease. Specifically, breakthroughs in genomics (e.g., $1,000 whole genome sequencing) and computational methods that enable decoding of genomic reads has led to broad screening of both patients and healthy volunteers. Defining actionable targets from genomic information has led to development of targeted small molecular inhibitors. Additionally, a detailed understanding of a patient?s genetic makeup has led to development of prognostic markers, allowing for development of companion diagnostics. These markers separate populations that are most likely to benefit from a certain treatment. Finally, attempts to develop drug delivery systems offer the opportunity to limit the delivery of specific inhibitors to affected cells in order to reduce unwanted systemic side effects. Scientists and physicians involved in PM intend to bring this individualized treatment to every corner of medical practice, but the applicability may be limited. Although recent achievements seem promising, we are still far away from applying PM to large populations. Limitations in science and technology, unsustainable cost of some approaches, and constrained budgets of health care providers have narrowed the distribution to a larger patient population. An integrated and revised approach in existing infrastructures is an absolute necessity to convert this potential to reality.
