Science Fuels DNA Testing Controversy with Prejudicial Misquote
Date:4/3/2008

rshiping at the altar of randomized trials." John Concato, MD,

Yale University.

Genelex's Position:

-- Individuals have a right to learn their genotype and control who

accesses this confidential information.

-- Excessive regulation will impede the already slow adoption of DNA

testing in medication management.

-- There needs to be symmetry between the level of proof required for

technology adoption and the potential risk and cost benefit ratios.

-- A peer-developed rating system needs to be developed that describes

where a given test lies on the continuum of scientific knowledge

about the utility, acceptance and proof of that test as a tool for

informed decision-making.

Randomized trials are in progress that will add to our knowledge. In the meantime clinicians and patients who find this information useful should have access to it. Physicians don't prescribe without knowing the patient's age, sex, and medical history, and often CYP genetics are more important than all these factors combined.
