Personalized respiratory medicine: Exploring the horizon, addressing the issues


Abstract

This Pulmonary Perspective summarizes the content and main conclusions of an international workshop on personalized respiratory medicine co-organized by the Barcelona Respiratory Network (www.brn.cat) and the AJRCCM in June 2014. It discusses: (1) its definition, historical, social, legal and ethical aspects; (2) the view from different disciplines, including basic science, epidemiology, bioinformatics and network/systems medicine.; (3) the bottlenecks and opportunities identified by some currently ongoing projects; and, (4) the implications for the individual, the health-care system and the pharmaceutical industry. Authors hope that, albeit not a systematic review on the subject, this document can be a useful reference for researchers, clinicians, health-care managers, policy-makers, and industry parties interested in personalized respiratory medicine.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
