Researcher: Personalizing Medicine Beneficial

September 21, 2011, 12:56 PM

SIOUX FALLS, SD - The president of Sanford Research USD says tailoring medicine to an individual's personalized needs can decrease side effects and offer better preventative care.

Dr. Eugene Hoyme says doctors always thought they were personalizing medicine to the individual patient's needs. In reality, doctors were going through standard protocols used on every patient.

But new advances in genomic medicine, also called personalized medicine, have allowed doctors to detect diseases at an earlier stage and offer better preventative treatments. Hoyme said doctors can also diagnose and treat some diseases they weren't able to before because of the genome.

Researchers completed the Human Genome Project in 2003. The 13-year project identified and mapped the 23,000 genes that make up the genome.

Hoyme was the keynote speaker at the South Dakota Biotech Association meeting.
