Introduction

Advances in the technology used in personalized medicine and increased applications for clinical use have created a need for this expansion and revision of Kewal K. Jain’s Textbook of Personalized Medicine. As the first definitive work on this topic, this book reviews the fundamentals and development of personalized medicine and subsequent adoptions of the concepts by the biopharmaceutical industry and the medical profession. It also discusses examples of applications in key therapeutic areas, as well as ethical and regulatory issues, providing a concise and comprehensive source of reference for those involved in healthcare management, planning and politics. Algorithms are included as a guide to those involved in the management of important diseases where decision-making is involved due to the multiple choices available.

Textbook of Personalized Medicine, Second Edition will serve as a convenient source of information for physicians, scientists, decision makers in the biopharmaceutical and healthcare industries and interested members of the public.

Preface

Considerable advances have taken place in technologies used for advancing person-alized medicine, and it is increasingly applied in clinical use. This has required expansion and revision of some parts of the first edition published in 2009. The style has been maintained due to the positive feedback of readers, including scientists, pharmacists, physicians, and lay persons interested in this topic. The book provides a concise and comprehensive source of reference for those involved in healthcare management, planning, and politics. As a single author book, it avoids the overlaps and missing areas frequently found in multiauthor books. Moreover, the time to publication is reduced by avoiding the long delays of numerous authors who do not keep the deadlines.

The book includes 700 references selected from thousands of publications during the past decade and appended at the end of each chapter. Some of the references included were prepublication versions at the end of 2014 that will not be formally published until 2015. The text is supplemented by 31 illustrations and 56 tables.

Algorithms are included as a guide to those involved in the management of important diseases where decision making is involved due to the multiple choices available.

Finally, I thank the editorial staff of Springer, particularly Patrick Marton and David Casey, for their help and encouragement in this project.
