The ideal personalized medicine is, when a patient has his samples taken at the hospital. Then, the samples are digitized — the genome is sequenced, read with transcript etc. All the information including medical history of the patient is uploaded into computer. In a moment, the algorithm gives a diagnosis, forecasts, and recommends treatment. Doctors only have to estimate machine’s medical assessment, and initiate the therapy. Now, this ‘machine’, accounting not only the age, weight, sex, but also a molecular body passport, is being constructed gradually.
One day, each disease will gain its set of biomarkers, when just a few samples are enough for giving a proper diagnosis. Although, it takes long to create these machines, some of technologies are already available.
