Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The term “personalized medicine” was first introduced in the late 1990s, referring to “the tailoring of medical treatment to the individual characteristics of each patient”. This paradigm shift highlighted the need to classify each patient as a unique individual, phenotyping their susceptibility to a particular disease or their response to a particular treatment. This approach offers several benefits: better choice of drugs; improved treatment selection in multimorbid patients; safer dosing options; reduced healthcare costs by avoiding multiple assessments; fewer inappropriate laboratory and diagnostic tests; improved patient perceived quality of life and level of support. Cardiovascular disease is one of the better areas where personalized medicine can make a difference in how patients are approached and treated. It is a leading cause of death worldwide and a major area of research and therapeutic interest. In cardiovascular medicine, especially in elderly multimorbid subjects, it is important to treat the patient and not the disease, and several new areas of development are underway. The aim of this Special Issue is to welcome both original research and review articles that provide new contributions to this important topic.
