EPMA_LOGOEPMA as the European Coordinator in the field of Predictive, Preventive & Personalised Medicine

Predictive medicine is a new philosophy in the healthcare and an attractive subject for currently initiated research activities aimed at a potential application of innovative biotechnologies in the prediction of human pathologies, a development of well-timed prevention and individual therapy-planning.

The issue has several aspects which allow the expectations of great advantages for predictive diagnostics and personalised treatment as the medicine of the future.

Amongst the most important aspects are a well-organised population screening, targeted prevention of the frequent pathologies, non- or minimally-invasive diagnostics, optimal therapy planning, personalised patient treatment, substantial improvement of the quality of life and the plausible solutions for particular social, ethical as well as serious economical problems.
