Precision medicine is an evolving field, which takes individual variability in genes, environment, and lifestyle into account when tackling disease treatment and prevention. LSIPR reports.

As we move away from a ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach to medicine, we move towards the future: precision medicine.

This ground-breaking development also represents something else—a fundamentally different way of thinking about treatment of human suffering, says Daniel Lim, partner at the London office of Kirkland & Ellis.

“Precision medicine has the potential to yield significantly better and more reliable outcomes, with reduced side-effects, reduced waste in the healthcare system and more informed clinical decision-making,” Lim adds.
