Revna Biosciences, a Tekedia Capital portfolio, will improve patient healthcare with Precision Medicine in Africa

Precision medicine or personalized medicine is a breakthrough innovation in healthcare. It facilitates highly accurate disease detection, prevention and treatment by considering each individual’s genetic makeup, lifestyle, ethnicity, family history, behavior and environment. Currently, patients who require a blood transfusion are matched with blood samples from people with identical blood types, minimizing potential side effects and improving patient care outcomes. Imagine if this approach were expanded to detect, prevent and treat endemic diseases affecting Africans, including malaria, tuberculosis, heart disease and diabetes, for all.

Precision medicine ensures that everyone receives tailored treatment based on their genetic, environmental and lifestyle characteristics. It ensures that every patient receives the right treatment, in the right dose, at the right time, improving patient health outcomes, minimizing one-size-fits-all prescriptions, mitigating inaccurate diagnoses, reducing medical complications, and reducing health tourism from Africa and associated capital flight.

However, only about 3% of the global genome data used in studies comes from individuals of African descent. Recent data show that this ratio has further decreased to around 1%, meaning Africans and their descendants may be missing out on the benefits of genomics research, such as B. the early detection of diseases and the precise design of drugs.
