Basics Of Personalized Medicine

Important basics of personalized medicine are:[1]

• Pharmacogenetics is a term recognized in pharmacology in the pregenomic era and concerns the study of influence of genetic factors on action of drugs.

• Pharmacogenomics is the application of genomics to drug discovery and development. It involves the study of mechanism of action of the drugs on the cells as revealed by gene expression patterns.

• Pharmacoproteomics is the application of proteomics to drug discovery and development. Subtyping patients on the basis of protein analysis may help to match a particular target-based therapy to a particular marker in a subgroup of patients. Pharmacoproteomics may be considered an extension of genomics and partially overlaps pharmacogenomics.

There is a degree of overlap between pharmacogenetics and pharmacogenomics. The two terms are considered by some as similar but one must recognize the distinction as shown in Table 1.

Getting Started With Dumbbells

The use of dumbbells gives you a much more comprehensive strengthening effect because the workout engages your stabilizer muscles, in addition to the muscle you may be pin-pointing. Without all of the belts and artificial stabilizers of a machine, you also engage your core muscles, which are your body's natural stabilizers.
