Description

In January 2015, Barack Hussein Obama II announced the precision medicine initiative to the public. Such precision medicine initiative could let the clinicians better realize the complex mechanism underlying the health state of a human being.

This initiation covers several goals: the privacy protection, the encouragement of the public-private partnership, the improved quality and availability of cancer treatment, the new method development of next generation sequencing technology, the reformation needed to support new research and care model development, the regulatory landscape review, the encouragement of innovative genetic sequencing technology and so on. The perspective of each focus in the initiative is first illustrated in detail. Second, the genographic project initiated by National Geographic Society and IBM will serve as the case study in this analysis. How the usage and the application of the output of the genographic project, which collected DNA samples from global population for human migration pattern mapping, are affected by such personalized medicine initiation is further analyzed. Last, the generalization of such analysis to other personalized genomics and applications is evaluated.

In brief, the analysis of the impact of the initiative on the personal genomics medicine shows the transparent trend of personal information retrieval and the regulatory tendency developed of such exposure control. The awareness of individual rights and the accommodation of public interests in advanced medical technology development need to be balanced in order to face the imminent challenges brought by the fast evolutionary science.
