New Tools in Diagnosis and Therapy


In the future, the Identification of the biochemical and molecular factors and related genes linked to the onset and progression of diseases (biomarkers) will guide the choice of therapies and also the segregation of patients who are most likely to benefit from a given therapy. The development of biomarkers for diseases (with a particular focus on cancer and rare diseases) would probably overcome the current limitations in the technologies of genomics and proteomics, and may change the practice of Clinical Medicine, with unforeseen economic consequences.
