Stratified medicine is an innovative treatment concept based on the use of genetic or other molecular information to select the best therapeutic strategy in order to improve health outcomes, such as effectiveness and safety, for a targeted group of patients sharing similar biological characteristics. The purpose of this paper is to give an overview of stratified medicine thereby describing waht the anticipated benefits and major issues are, and ultimately, making recommendations to ensure a smooth transition towards this new paradigm.
