A new study from a pediatric cardiologist and her team at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia suggests that that this poor growth may stem from factors beyond deficient nutrition, and may include abnormalities in overall growth regulation.

A team led by CHOP’s Marni J. Falk, MD, has expanded next-generation gene tools designed to sequence nuclear DNA to analyze a separate source of DNA — that found within mitochondria. Mitochondria are key suppliers of the energy needed for the multiple functions of our cells. Mitochondria contain their own DNA, and play a pivotal role in human health and disease.

The idea of “personalized” medicine isn’t just about a one-on-one encounter with a doctor, the use of sophisticated mobile applications, or heightened access to healthcare providers, medical records, and services. Personalized medicine also extends into the depths of who each of us are at our essence — to our individual genetic makeup.
