What Precision Medicine Can Learn from Rare Genetic Disease Research and Translation.

Summary of "What Precision Medicine Can Learn from Rare Genetic Disease Research and Translation."

The goal of this article is to examine the intersections of precision health and rare diseases. Specifically, we propose 3 lessons from the last decade of applying genomics to rare diseases: (1) precision can end one odyssey and start another; (2) precise interventions can exacerbate health disparities and create other ethical dilemmas; and (3) democratization of data will transform research and translation. By studying experiences of patients with rare diseases, researchers, clinicians, and policymakers can anticipate similar challenges in precision medicine and hopefully mitigate potential harms or injustices.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Clinical, therapeutic and diagnostic approaches to optimal disease management based on individual variations in a patient's genetic profile.

Metal devices for fastening together two or more parts of dental prostheses for stabilizing or retaining them by attachment to abutment teeth. For a precision attachment for a partial denture DENTURE PRECISION ATTACHMENT is available.

The detection of genetic variability (e.g., PHARMACOGENOMIC VARIANTS) relevant to PHARMACOGENETICS and PRECISION MEDICINE. The purpose of such genetic testing is to help determine the most effective treatment options and their optimum dosages with least potential risks for DRUG-RELATED SIDE EFFECTS AND ADVERSE REACTIONS.

Production of new arrangements of DNA by various mechanisms such as assortment and segregation, CROSSING OVER; GENE CONVERSION; GENETIC TRANSFORMATION; GENETIC CONJUGATION; GENETIC TRANSDUCTION; or mixed infection of viruses.

A precision device used for attaching a fixed or removable partial denture to the crown of an abutment tooth or a restoration. One type is the intracoronal attachment and the other type is the extracoronal attachment. It consists of a female portion within the coronal portion of the crown of an abutment and a fitted male portion attached to the denture proper. (Jablonski, Dictionary of Dentistry, 1992, p85; from Boucher's Clinical Dental Terminology, 4th ed, p264)
