Due to the considerable technological progress in molecular and genetic diagnostics as well as increasing insights into the molecular pathogenesis of diseases, there has been a fundamental paradigm shift in the past two decades from a “one-size-fits-all approach” to personalized, molecularly informed treatment strategies. Personalized medicine or precision medicine focuses on the genetic, physiological, molecular, and biochemical differences between individuals and considers their effects on the development, prevention, and treatment of diseases. As a pioneer of personalized medicine, the field of oncology is particularly noteworthy, where personalized diagnostics and treatment have led to lasting change in the treatment of cancer patients in recent years. In this article, the significant change towards personalized treatment concepts, especially in the field of personalized oncology, will be discussed and examined in more detail.
