Personalized medicine is one area that is likely to benefit greatly from technological developments in genetic testing, which are of assistance not only in the better diagnosis of genetic diseases but also in deciding on an ideal medical regimen based on an individualDNA structure for ensuring that the drug responds in a superior manner.
In the realm of personalized medicine, Direct-to-Consumer (DTC) genetic testing has emerged as a major trend in the market and is expected to make a positive impact on the overall growth of the genetic testing market.
