Hayes, Inc. Releases Guide to BRCA1 and BRCA2 Genetic Testing
Date:5/13/2010

n seeing BRCA1 and BRCA2 genetic testing.

"We understand that some of the reasons for these inappropriate referrals are the physician's concern about upsetting a patient by saying 'no' to her request, even though she doesn't meet the guidelines for testing," says Dr. Allingham-Hawkins. "However, test results will not provide useful information about cancer risk unless the woman meets these guidelines, and can lead to undue worry without providing any health benefit. In addition, the cost of these tests alone can be greater than $3500, with the recommended genetic counseling adding even more."

Written in a style that can be understood by both the clinician and non-clinician, the Hayes Guide scrutinizes nearly 300 scientific and clinical publications to provide unbiased information and recommendations regarding BRCA1/2 testing in different patient populations. Included is an in-depth analysis describing each of these tests, with special attention focused on the clinical validity, analytical validity, clinical utility, cost, major payer coverage policies, genetic counseling recommendations, and what the future holds for genetic testing for hereditary breast and ovarian cancer. Generally, access to Hayes genetic test evaluations requires a password-protected subscription to the Hayes Knowledge Center. However, recognizing the importance of this information, Hayes is releasing this special volume for a one-time fee. Click here for more information.
