Phanges are Precision Medicines Tailored to Your Illness

Content

For some diseases that are fundamentally caused by and progress with change, we may need medicines that change as well. For example, engineering patients' own T cells to attack their cancer is a precision medicine. CRISPR-based correction of your DNA to remove mutations that cause blindness is another example. Both of these approaches, landmark in their concept, were recently approved by the FDA. Personalized medicines are desperately needed to combat antibiotic resistance. Doctors already tailor patients' treatments based on their bacterial strain’s antibiotic susceptibility. TAILOR can personalize treatment by discovering and developing the most effective antibiotic and phage combinations.
