These really are exciting times for the future of metabolic phenotyping in medicine. We're at a point now where we have the analytical capability and the computational capability to collect very large data sets, mine those data sets and really find markers that are going to help to stratify patients into different disease groups to try and pinpoint which drugs a particular individual should take versus another individual with apparently the same sort of disease.
I think there's great potential right now and in the next few years. We hope to see these metabolite measurements rolling more into the clinical scenario.
