Blood–brain barrier on a chip offers opportunity for personalized treatment of neurological conditions
Researchers have created a blood–brain barrier chip utilizing human induced pluripotent stem cells, which could be utilized to understand neurological disorders on a patient-to-patient basis.
Researchers have developed a personalized neurological footprint, which uses a link between brain physiology, genetic profile and response to therapeutics, to predict the effectiveness of aiming treatment at various targets within individual patients.
In this review, the authors discuss driving factors for the next generation of immunotherapy and target therapy, as well as how to increase the accuracy of the selection process for these therapies.
Could this new approach drive Parkinson’s disease into the age of personalized medicine?
In circadian rhythm sleep–wake disorders precision medicine is less developed than in other medical disciplines mainly because homeostatic sleep and circadian timing have a very complex phenotype with multiple genetic regulation mechanisms.
