Personalized Management of Miscellaneous Disorders
Similar to the concept of personalized medicine based on patients’ genetic differences, treatment of infectious diseases involves individualizing therapy according to genetic differences in infectious agents. The main example is that of HIV infection. There are two variable factors in HIV/AIDS – how people respond to the HIV and how HIV responds to drugs. Research in vaccinology is playing an important role in relation to immunology of HIV/AIDS.
