Direct-to-consumer genetic tests are a ‘turning point’ for precision medicine, analysts say – FierceHealthcare

The federal government is already investing millions of dollars into precision medicine research, but the ability for consumers to access their genetic information without having to see a physician could be a launchpad for personalized medicine. Allowing patients to understand their genetic makeup through 10 FDA-approved screening tests offered through 23andMe will be a turning point in the democratization of personalized medicine, two analysts with the Manhattan Institute wrote in the Wall Street Journal. In fact, the right to know the risks contained in your genetic code will likely become the most fundamental medical right of the 21st century, Senior Fellows Peter Huber and Paul Howard wrote in an op-ed Continue reading

Genetic Test Could Predict Transplant Success in People with Hep C, Cirrhosis – Healthline

A saliva test could identify genetic markers that indicate which people with hepatitis C and cirrhosis will benefit from certain treatments. Researchers say this test could help doctors predict outcomes after treating hepatitis C, and decrease the need for liver transplants. Our findings further the move toward precision medicine, because we can potentially use a persons genetic makeup to identify individuals who can benefit most from hepatitis C treatment, even at a very late stage in the progression of their liver disease, Dr Continue reading
