Abstract

The ideas of incorporating individual variabilities for prevention and treatment of diseases are getting paramount importance nowadays in modern medicine, otherwise known as precision medicine. Precision medicine aims at revolutionising modern human treatment by combining some or all of the available behavioral, biomarker, cellular, molecular, clinical, environmental, genetic, phenotypic, genomic, metabolomic, proteomic, transcriptomic, antibodyomic, physiological and psychological parameters of patients (1,2). It promotes targeted treatment and side-effect minimization of individual patients based on various related characteristics that distinguish one patient from others with similar kind of clinical presentations (3).
