PERSONALIZED MEDICINE AND GENETICS — Blockchain genetic services of digitized DNA sequences.
Personalized medicine is referred to as the medical doctrine for treating patients. It belongs to different groups and aims to tailor medical decisions, practices, interventions and pharmaceutical treatment to the individual patient. Personalized medicine today, is based on the development of several fields that include diagnostic, (Bio)informatics, big data analysis and genetic/genomics approaches that offer an understanding of the molecular basis of disease and genetic conditions.
Every person has is own unique genomic sequence with minor differences between individuals. While most of the variations between individuals has little or no effect on their phenotypes (the composite of an organism’s observable characteristics or traits) there are cases where such minor differences (e.g. mutations) could lead to significant variances between two people. In some cases, these variations can have a major impact on an individual’s health. Personalized medicine relies on technologies which analyze the DNA, RNA, protein, microbiome and epigenetics make up of a person, which eventually leads to tailoring specific medical solutions to a disease.
One of the tools frequently being used in personalized medicine is DNA sequencing which covers parts or the complete human genome. By revealing alterations such as mutations, deletions, repetitions and etc… in DNA that influence the diseases outbreak and progression, such diseases as sickle cell anemia, cystic fibrosis and cancer can be properly and effectively treated. Personalized medicine that is genetics based is the basis of the shift from reactive (treatment) medicine to preventive medicine. Using predictive tools to assess health risks, one can design personalized health plans to help patients mitigate risks, prevent disease, treating it more precisely when it occurs.
DNAtix is a cutting-edge Genetics and Blockchain company providing anonymous and encrypted genetic services including: analysis, storage and transfer of digitized DNA sequences through a Direct-to Consumer platform (D2C).
DNAtix enables its users to take ownership of their genetic data, encouraging them to manage their health today, moving from Reactive to Preventative medicine.
We are standing at the threshold of a major disruption in the Genetic testing space. Different health fields are coming together to collaborate and enhance each other’s activities and growth, thus making DNAtix services and the DNAtix token the right technology, at the right time and place.
