Date:2/10/2009

The 2009 Personalized Medicine Conference is bringing together the wide variety of stakeholders in both the public and private sector to examine both the opportunities and challenges facing those involved in the development and realization of personalized medicine.

Baltimore, MD (PRWEB) February 10, 2009 -- Arrowhead's 2009 Personalized Medicine Conference is a full two day conference set to take place in Baltimore on April 23rd and 24th that will bring together leaders from industry, government and academia to discuss issues of central importance to the future of personalized medicine. Sessions will be held on a variety of topics integral to the development of personalized medicine, including, but not limited to:

- pharmacogenomics
- biomarkers
- molecular diagnostics
- pharmacogenetics

Sessions will not only cover the various scientific and clinical developments in this space, but also a plethora of other issues that will need to be resolved in order to ensure success in this field, including:

- future regulatory models for personalized medicine
- social, ethical and legal concerns
- economic issues (insurance coverage, reimbursement, etc.)

Patrick Terry, the Co-Founder of Genomic Health and the Founder of the Personalized Medicine Coalition will share with attendees how innovative diagnostic companies are securing value-based rather than cost-based payment and will discuss how these innovators are building compelling clinical and economic evidence to support coverage and value-based payment from payers.

Attendees will also hear from Robert L. Becker, Jr, MD, Ph.D, the Chief Medical Officer of the FDA's Office of In Vitro Diagnostic Device Evaluation and Safety on the role of laboratory tests in personalized medicine and from Asif Dhar, MD, MBA, a Senior Fellow at the Deloitte Center for Health Solutions on the issue of ROI in targeted therapies. Specifically, Dr. Dhar will discuss the barriers facing developers of personalized medicine as well as the benefits of adopting personalized medicine.

Twenty five other speakers will be on hand to discuss the following issues:

- value creation in personalized medicine
- financial transparency in personalized medicine
- private insurance and Medicare coverage of personalized medicine
- the payors' perspective on personalized medicine
- the role of biomarkers and molecular diagnostics in the future of medicine
- how personalized medicine is faring in clinical trials
- perspectives on how clinicians will use personalized therapies in the future
