- Personalised medicineStratified and personalised medicine involves tailoring treatments towards a specific group of patients or to individuals.
- New research areas in personalised medicinesThere are several new research areas driving personalised medicine forward, such as molecular genetics, epigenetics, pharmacogenetics, and the development of biomarkers and biomedicines.
- Data collection in clinical trialsThere are several forms of data collection in clinical trials, including electronic methods and Patient Reported Outcomes (PROs). All forms of data collection must adhere to Good Clinical Practice (GCP) guidelines to ensure that the data captured are of the best possible quality.
- BiomarkersBiomarkers are indicators used in medical research to measure biological processes, disease processes, and responses to treatment. The use of biomarkers can improve the process of medicines development and help tailor treatments to individuals.
