Bio-Resources and Database for Preemptive Medicine

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Establishing a primary defense for the improvement of individual quality of life by epidemiology and various clinical studies applying bio-resources/database analysis is very important. Furthermore, recent studies on understanding the epigenetic regulatory mechanisms of developmental origins of health and diseases are attracting increasing interest. Therefore, the storing of not only bio-fluid (i.e., blood, urine) but also certain tissues (i.e., placenta, cord) is very important for research. The Resource Center for Health Science (RECHS) and Bio-databases Institute of Reproductive and Developmental Medicine (BIRD) have estab- lished Bio-bank and initiated a project based on the development and utilization of bio-resources/database, comprising personal health records (PHR), such as health/medical records including individual records of daily diet and exercise, physically consolidated with bio-resources, taken from the same individuals. These Bio-Resources/Database projects are very important for the establishment of preemptive medicine and un- derstanding the mechanisms of the developmental origins of health and diseases.
