Title: Warning Patients' Relatives of Genetic Risks: Policy Approaches
Authors: Lacroix, Mireille
Godard, Béatrice
Knoppers, Bartha Maria
Issue Date: 2005
Publisher: GenEdit
Abstract: As an increasing number of genetic tests for specific early- and late-onset disorders move from research to the clinical setting, health care professionals are faced with new challenges or, alternatively, with novel twists on age-old ethical dilemmas. A finding that an individual carries a deleterious mutation can indicate that his or her relatives are at an increased risk of being affected by the same genetic disorder.
