On the Record

Undoubtedly, precision medicine is gaining momentum.
Recent reports put the market on a growth track to reach
$65-75 billion by 2021, with an estimated average growth
rate of 10-12% (1-3). A flurry of announcements regarding
the main focus therapy area, oncology, shows that the field
is attracting a lot of research attention as well as funding.

Cases in point: the $215 million committed to the
Precision Medicine Initiative database in 2015 and
the subsequent $1.45 billion allocated to precision medicine
as part of the 21st Century Cures Act by the Obama
Administration (4). Meanwhile, China launched a five-year,
$3 billion precision medicine initiative in 2016, and the UK
has announced €300 million funding for a four-year project
to map 100,000 of people’s genomes this year (3,5).
The Swiss pharmaceutical hub of Basel – home to powerhouses
Novartis and Roche – has set up a cross-industry innovation
platform for precision medicine, and Qatar has established a
world-class genome project and biobank (6,7).

This surge of activity has been spurred by innovations
in medical technologies, such as drug discovery, companion
diagnostics, next-generation sequencing, bioinformatics
and big data analytics. These allow the diagnosis of certain
diseases based on the analysis of genetic information –
via genomics and specific biomarker techniques – and
the ability to treat particular diseases with new genetic
manipulation methods.
