What will be the costs of precision medicine?
After about 10 years of gestation and 10 years of claims, Precision Medicine has recently changed its pace and entered a new era. Thanks to molecular and gene bioengineering, which directly changes our DNA, today we see the first clinical experimentations of CRISPR (Clustered Regularly Interspaced Short Palindromic Repeats)-Cas and CAR-T (Chimeric Antigen Receptor – T). We will have to wait for clinical practice to confirm hope in the duration of the effect of these therapies, but there is no doubt that it is very high precision and cost medicine. The challenge is to find methods that are innovative enough to reimburse them.
