PHARMACOGENOMICS (PGx), is one of the most exciting fields of personalized medicine today. It is an example of the field of precision medicine in which medical treatment of each person is tailored according to their condition. Pharmacogenomics studies each person’s DNA and how it responds to different drugs. Different patients respond to treatments differently so pharmacogenomics helps predict who will benefit from medication and who will have adverse reactions to it based on their DNA. Researchers have found out genetic variations in how people respond to different treatments and this information can be used to select the appropriate treatment for each person. New approaches to this infant field are being introduced and tested in clinical trials. Tailored treatment of many health problems such as cardiovascular disease, cancer, and HIV/AIDS has been introduced.
