ABSTRACT
The article ponders on the concept of personalized medicine and the efforts being done by the U.S. government to support such program in 2010. Such type of medicine will be based on such information as laboratory test results, family history, and patient's values. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration launched the Critical Path Initiative in 2004 while U.S. President Barack Obama introduced a legislative bill on genomic research when he was still a senator in 2006.
