#Genomic medicine is still in its nascent stage. Yet it shows promise in treatment of many diseases. Hence developed and developing countries alike are investing heavily in research in genomes. Also they’re developing innovative biomedical technology.
Genomics uses our genomic information. Our genes are small units of DNA that encode instructions to cells ranging from how we look–the color of our skin, our hair–to the most minute details of the various chemical processes in our cells.
No two human beings are the same genetically. Treating different people with the same drug might yield different results.
Through genetic testing, researchers decode our genomes. Then doctors can determine:
* the diseases an individual is susceptible to,
* drugs which will be effective for that individual, and
* the possible genetic abnormalities that result in a disease.
#Personalized medicine means patients receive treatment and drugs that have been proven effective for them. Such #precision medicine makes possible curing rare and hitherto untreatable diseases.

Genomics reduces patient exposure to avoidable drug toxicity. Patients avoid spending huge amounts of money on unnecessary #treatment. Genomics provides highly advanced patient care at a much lower cost.
One country showing promise in genomic medicine is Mexico. Also it’s a destination for #medical tourists. The major drivers of medical tourism are affordability and quality healthcare.
Many cancer patients seek treatment outside of their home countries. In the US, patients pay up to $100,000 every year. Much of the cost is for ineffective drugs and the management of adverse effects from those #prescription drugs. They’re problems genomics solves.

On February 5, Mexicans celebrate their #Constitution. On this day, 101 years ago, their constitutional #convention adopted the document. It gave the winners of the third Mexican #Revolution some paper legitimacy. (Mexicans rebelled thrice in one hundred years: against Spain 1810, France 1861, dictator Diaz 1910.)
