Personalised Medicine: Cure or Quandary?

Imagine being prescribed ‘personalised’ medicines, specific to your genetic makeup. Would this mean safer, more effective treatment, or could it result in a host of ethical problems? If a blood test reveals that a cancer sufferer will not respond to the best drug on the market, would their chances of survival be uncertain? Will drug companies develop medicines that may benefit only a few people? Is the NHS ready for personalised medicines and can it afford them? This event is organised by the European Dana Alliance for the Brain and the British Pharmacological Society.
