Mount Sinai receives $3.4 million for largest study of personalized medicine in the clinical setting
Date:8/18/2011

se. The team will evaluate whether the genomic-risk assessment, based on the presence of certain SNP genotypes as well as traditional risk factors, will lead to improved management of risk factors for heart disease in each patient and help prevent the onset of heart disease, as compared to the using traditional risk factors alone.

"The study will give the physicians in the genomic-risk assessment group access to each individual patient's genomic risk scores and predictors for treatment response and adverse drug reactions, allowing them to specifically tailor the patient's treatment and disease management," said Dr. Bottinger. "In addition, it gives them a rationale to treat high cholesterol and high blood pressure more aggressively to prevent them from causing or contributing to cardiovascular disease."

Additionally, the research team will also enter 3,000 Biobank patients into a pool of 32,000 patients as part of Genome-Wide Association Studies (GWAS) that will be conducted by the eMERGE consortium. The consortium hopes to identify genetic variants associated with 40 additional disease characteristics and symptoms, ideally making these genetic m available to treating physicians and allowing them to personalize their patients' treatments.
