ENHANCING PRECISION MEDICINE THROUGH CLINICAL MASS SPECTROMETRY PLATFORM

Dobrin Svinarov

Precision medicine (also referred to as personalized medicine), employs patient’s genotype and phenotype investigation to establish individually tailored drug treatment. While genetic testing allows the physician to choose appropriate medicine, the performance of MS assays provides the patient’s actual phenotype, with all of the environmental, pharmacological and pathological variables. Therefore, MS is essentially important technology for personalized patient management.
