Ethical Dilemmas in Genetics and Genetic Counseling

Show Summary Details

Preview

Knowledge of the genetic basis of human diseases is growing rapidly, with important implications for pre-conception, prenatal, and predictive testing. While new genetic testing offers better insight into the causes of and susceptibility for heritable diseases, not all inherited diseases that can be predicted on the basis of genetic information can be treated or cured. By using a creative approach that focuses on a single extended family as a case example to illustrate each chapter's key point, the authors elucidate ethical issues arising in the genetics clinic and laboratory surrounding many timely issues, including prenatal and pre-implantation genetic diagnosis, assisted reproductive technologies, incidental findings in genetic testing, gene patenting, testing children for adult onset disorders, and direct-to-consumer testing.
