The idea of “personalized” medicine isn’t just about a one-on-one encounter with a doctor, the use of sophisticated mobile applications, or heightened access to healthcare providers, medical records, and services. Personalized medicine also extends into the depths of who each of us are at our essence — to our individual genetic makeup.

Genetics researchers at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia have found 25 “high impact” gene variants that occur in some patients with autism. Although rare individually, each genetic variant has a strong effect in raising a person’s autism risk. These findings could be incorporated into clinical tests for evaluating children for autism spectrum disorders.
