The importance of Stratified Medicine, customising it to the needs of each patient is becoming increasingly important, in part to increase the effectiveness and reduce the side effects of individual treatments and to ensure the cost effectiveness and efficiacy of all treatments.
With is unique identifier and sophisticated informatics expertise, Scotland is leading the way on undertaking health research with highly stratified patient population and the development and testing of stratified medicines for increased effectiveness.
Examples where Stratified Medicine plays an important role include:
- Generation Scotland with its large family-based population genetic biobank allowing resources of genomic proteomic, metabolomic, epigenetic, pharmacogenetic and resequencing projects, drawing on detailed genetic information, and allowing recontact with participants to undertake further trials
- Scottish Diabetes Research Register. Including detailed information on treatments and conditions of members of the register allow detailed profiling and targeting of patients for clinical studies.
