With the successful mapping of the human genome, we have entered an age of unprecedented opportunity in which researchers are beginning to apply this vast repository of knowledge to the treatment of human disease. Gene-profiling technologies and the concept of individualized medicine are leading to the development of drugs with enhanced specificity. This promises to lead to more effective treatment of diseases with reduced risk of side effects. Gene Profiling in Drug Design provides insights from leaders in the pure sciences, biotechnology, and other arenas. It emphasizes the science that underpins gene profiling and drug development, and also includes clinical and ethical perspectives from experts in those fields. These explore the broadest health and social implications for this exciting field of science and discovery.
