Today Scotland’s First Minister Alex Salmond announced the creation of a £20M Stratified Medicine Scotland Innovation Centre (SMS-IC), an initiative to grow Scotland’s reputation as a world leader in the conduct of “smart” clinical trials.
In the simplest terms, stratified medicine is about delivering “the right therapy, for the right patient, in the right dose, at the right time”. It is a medical model using clinical information and molecular profiling technologies to tailor therapeutic strategies and to determine the predisposition to disease at the population level. It enables the delivery of timely and stratified care pathways, monitoring, treatment and prevention.
