Advances in personalized medicine take center stage
Date:4/27/2010

Kansas City, MO April 28, 2010 Many of the world's leading experts in pediatric pharmacogenomics and personalized medicine are gathering today at a first-of-its-kind conference in Kansas City to change the way childhood diseases and illnesses are treated. The goal of the conference, hosted by Children's Mercy Hospitals and Clinics, is to apply genomic tools to medical problems to tailor treatment to the unique make-up of pediatric patients and improve outcomes.

"Personalized medicine uses recent advancements in genomics and molecular data to help us give the right medication to the right patient, in the right dosage, at the right time," said conference organizer Stephen Spielberg, MD, PhD, Director of the Children's Mercy Center for Personalized Medicine and Therapeutic Innovation; Marion Merrell Dow Chair in Pediatric Pharmacogenomics; and Professor of Pediatrics, University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Medicine. "Currently, many types of medications work for only about half of the people who take them, so personalized medicine has the potential to revolutionize the way we treat illness."

At the April 28-30 conference, experts from academia, government and the private sector in the US, Canada and Japan will exchange knowledge centering on clinical applications, bioethics and development of pediatric personalized medicine programs. The conference will begin on Wednesday evening, April 28 at 6 p.m., with a keynote speech delivered by Gregory Downing, DO, PhD, Office of the Secretary, US Department of Health and Human Services.

Among the clinical applications to be discussed are some of the research programs being conducted at Children's Mercy addressing important patient challenges, such as:

  • Applying genomic strategies to improve the safety and efficacy of medications used to treat cancer in children
  • Improving the effectiveness and benefit/risk ratio of a common therapeutic agent in treating Juve
