Precision Medicine (Patent Pending)

Precision Medicine

[vc_row row_scroll_icon="no"][vc_column][vc_column_text] Moving away from ‘one size fits all’, precision medicine is a personalised method of medical treatment which is currently used to treat some cancers. The approach takes into account that each person is an individual and will not have the same genetic makeup as another; by analysing a patient’s individual genetic characteristics this can allow us to predict and tailor more effective treatments. This is a step further ahead of testing patients genetically to see how patients tolerate drugs, like antidepressants or antipsychotics. With this approach The London Psychiatry Centre has been successful in determining the best minimal or side effect-free treatment for its patients. The London Psychiatry Centre has been the first to successfully apply the precision medicine technique to mental health – specifically type 2 and subthreshold bipolar disorder – in patients who have four or more mood changes in a year (rapid cycling). Bipolar disorder is an illness which greatly impacts quality of life. It carries a high depression burden, considerable suicide rate and divorce rates of up to 90%. Traditionally, treatment for bipolar disorder involves a combination of three to four drugs which come with considerable side effects. However, a new treatment combination, pioneered by The London Psychiatry Centre, ensures the patient suffers minimal, if any, side effects. This groundbreaking discovery is big news and could lead to worldwide change in how bipolar sufferers are treated. The team behind this discovery is led by Consultant Psychiatrist, Dr Andy Zamar, Consultant Endocrinologist, Dr Abbi Lulsegged, and Consultant Cardiologist, Dr Robin Roberts from The London Psychiatry Centre. Together, the team pioneered an effective treatment combination which incorporates non-invasive treatment rTMS (Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation) combined with targeted genetic testing for thyroid activating enzymes. Patients treated at The London Psychiatry Centre, using a combination of rTMS and the high-dose thyroid hormones, have recovered after years of unsuccessful treatment with drugs. They also experienced with minimal or no side effects when compared to the standard treatment using a combination of three or four drugs. The results were described as “life changing” by patients, and this was commented on by the CQC in their report on the centre. The London Psychiatry Centre and its sister clinics are the only clinics in the world offering this treatment for bipolar disorder.
