About this item

The second decade of the 21st century has witnessed a new surge in emphasis on personalized medicine based on analysis of an individual’s unique genetic make-up as a means to enable more precise diagnosis, treatment and prevention of diseases.

This book attempts to contribute to this growing body of literature by tracing and analyzing "personalized medicine" as it unfolds in Asia, and in so doing, illustrating various social forces shaping the "co-production" of science and social order in transnational settings. The book shows that there are inextricable transnational linkages between developing and developed countries and also provides a theoretically guided and empirically grounded understanding of the formation and usage of particular human taxonomies in transnational settings.
