    Personalised Medicine: A Critique on the Future of Health Care. [REVIEW]Jacqueline Savard - 2013 - Journal of Bioethical Inquiry 10 (2):197-203.
    In recent years we have seen the emergence of “personalised medicine.” This development can be seen as the logical product of reductionism in medical science in which disease is increasingly understood in molecular terms. Personalised medicine has flourished as a consequence of the application of neoliberal principles to health care, whereby a commercial and social need for personalised medicine has been created.
