GAINESVILLE, Fla. — Personalized medicine — a concept in which an understanding of a patient's genetic makeup is used to enhance treatment — has arrived at UF&Shands, the University of Florida Academic Health Center.
Under a new standard of care, UF doctors are helping to ward off heart attacks or strokes after heart procedures by taking a person's genetic information into account before prescribing medications that prevent blood clots.
Starting today, patients at Shands at UF medical center who undergo a procedure that involves passing a thin tube into the left side of the heart in order to diagnose or treat heart disease will now be routinely screened for biological signals in their blood that give clues about how they might respond to a common anticlotting drug called clopidogrel, also sold as Plavix.
