We apply Genetics in our diagnostic procedures and therapeutic strategies, to provide a Personalized Medicine for our patients
The incorporation of genomics and knowledge of the human genome enable EuroEspes to implement prevention plans for those persons and family groups where, generation after generation, a genetically-based disease arises.
As a Center at the forefront of Pharmacogenetics, we optimize the pharmacological treatment in order to achieve the maximum level of therapeutic efficiency, reducing side-effects and unnecessary costs.
Currently, we apply Genetics to our diagnostic procedures and therapeutic strategies, practicing a Personalized Medicine for our patients.
Genetic tests, which provide all this information in just a few days, are becoming commonplace in the most advanced healthcare protocols. Early detection of diseases, monitoring their progression and avoiding the implementation of standardized, more costly treatments, which are ineffective in many patients, make genetics the key to reducing healthcare costs.
The Patient’s Genetic Profile
Differences in our genetic sequences make us unique. Genetic diversity, the differences in the DNA sequence, explain the color of our hair, of our skin, our height, even the color of our eyes, but they also explain the risk of suffering a disease and the way our bodies respond to pharmacological treatment.
Human Genome Project
Genetic analysis provides unique opportunities to aid physicians in the monitoring and the in-depth understanding of a particular disease. Nowadays, these tests can confirm a probable diagnosis, dismiss diseases in a differential diagnosis, predict the appearance of future diseases in a healthy individual, and can aid couples in their family planning. The future is promising, as breakthroughs in genetic technology will aid physicians in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases by means of both pharmacogenetics (drugs prepared for individuals with a particular genetic profile) and gene therapy.
The sequencing of the human genome has provided the world of medicine with a new viewpoint of the relationship between illness and health, making it possible to move forward towards a more personalized medicine, bearing in mind individual genetic differences, the molecular causes of diseases and the influence of environmental factors on their development.
