Sažetak
Modern medicine faces great challenges including rapid social changes resulting from globalization, emerging new infectious diseases that spread quickly, alterations in clinical patterns of some diseases (e.g. drug-resistant tuberculosis), and abrupt climate and demographic changes (i.e. aging). These are only some of the issues that traditional medicine is likely to cope with great difficulties. Consequently, the need for new, personalised medicine has arisen that would bring about radical changes in healthcare systems. Such approach represents a shift from the era of blockbuster drugs designed to treat all patients suffering from the same disease towards individualised treatment based upon unique features of each patient. Medicine has been lately fragmented, which has produced a certain fragmented approach towards patients. A paradoxical situation occurs where medicine has reached high level of technological advancement on the one hand, but on the other hand, an integrated perception of the patient functioning as a result of overall organ activities has been neglected. It is the personalised medicine approach that places emphasis on the patient with all his/her biological features.
