Genetic Medicine is Precision Medicine
Human genes impact how a person develops a disease and the therapeutic agents used to treat that disease. Which means at molecular levels, slight differences in the genetic material in human beings can contribute to the development of disease and also the ability to fight that disease. It also effects an individual’s ability to respond to therapies.
It is therefore possible to precisely identify subtle genetic differences between individuals and make treatment decisions based on those differences for effectively treating diseases. Genetic medicine is a potentially promising new or robust division of medicine that uses genetic materials including DNA and RNA for the treatment of diseases. This is a new class of medicine which was not there before.
There has been a significant improvement in the way we understand diseases and their prognosis – thanks to advancements in science and technology. Healthcare providers are gaining huge insights from genetics and are adopting them for the treatment of rare, complex and infectious diseases and cancer. Medicine is changing now – definition of disease, drug discovery and treatment – all are changing. Genetic medicine is an emerging technology with tremendous capabilities in terms of development of specialized, customized and personalised medicines for a wide range of health conditions. Its capabilities can be expanded for mass administration of medicines as well.
Genetic medicine is a revolutionary division of medicine because with the completion of human genome project coupled with the advancements in human genetics and molecular biology – the power that quantitative genetics offer to identify disease susceptibility gene is enormous.
Genetic Medicine at TX Hospitals
The Department of best Genetic Medicine in Uppal at TX Hospitals has been established to provide facilities for academics and research. We are running clinical research programs with an objective of focussing on the genetic basis of health and disease. The department is well-equipped with cutting-edge research tools and facilities. Both academics and research provide an environment for our specialists to explore new areas and understand the relationship between predisposition to disease and human genetics.
Our physicians work as a multidisciplinary team to gain and advance their knowledge about the common genetic determinants of neurological disorders, heart disease, congenital neuropathies and cancer.
The Department of best Genetic Medicine in Kachiguda at TX Hospitals works to gain deep insights about human heredity (genes, their expressions, functions and effects) and to employ the learned concepts for the prevention and treatment of diseases. Specialists, molecular biologists and geneticists work together in a collaborative manner and consolidate data gained through patient care, learning and research. Their objective is to make this centre as a national level genetic medicine research facility.
The Centre of Collaborative Research
Genetic medicine is an evolving division at TX hospitals as it serves as a centre of collaboration for doctors, researchers, scientists and healthcare professionals working in diverse fields to foster their research and findings and use newly discovered knowledge for the treatment of human diseases. Specialists working in this department carry their research further building on their past strengths and developing their expertise in the evolving areas of genomics, complex disease genetics and developmental genetics.
Future of Genetic Medicine
The Department of Genetic Medicine at TX Hospitals works to foster the knowledge of human genes to other specialities of medicine by collaborating with other specialities – such as cardiology, general medicine, endocrinology and neurology and others.
Doctors in the current century will channelize their efforts on defining genetically determined propensity of patients for certain diseases. This type of robust strategy will help them identify, prevent, modify and treat a broad range of diseases and disorders that comes with unique inheritable risk factors. This type of strategy will also be helpful for the identification and treatment of common conditions such as atherosclerosis, high blood pressure, diabetes , obesity and even cancer.
