Abstract: Theranostics is an emerging field of medicine that uniquely combines drugs and/or techniques to simultaneously or sequentially diagnose and treat medical conditions. Proteomics, the large-scale characterisation of proteins, is now being applied in theranostics. The proteome is the entire set of proteins that is produced by an organism. It varies temporally and spatially according to the distinct needs of the organism. Major breakthroughs in human proteomics are seen in its theranostics applications as biomarkers (e.g. in cancer, Alzheimer's disease, various other neurodegenerative disorders, autism, cardiovascular diseases) and in therapeutics (e.g. personalised treatment).
