  1. Does the patent listed here cover all kinds of personalized microbiome medicine? On a first glance, it seems incredible that this could be patented.

    • Hi! As per what I understood from this paper, MAGI score is Microbiome And Gut Inflamation. So this Patent particularly identifies the clinical information about gut along with the other physiological history. While you say all kind of personalized medicine, I would answer as “NO”. If you would have asked personalized medicine for gut, I would have said “YES”. I am not sure if this invention/patent has undertaken or implied any case study recommending personalized medicine.
