UK report on late-onset disorder testing:

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

The UK government's Advisory Committee on Genetic Testing has published its final report on genetic testing for late-onset disorders. The report's recommendations are virtually unchanged from the consultation document sent out for comment late last year (see Clinica No 782, p 9). Presymptomatic genetic testing of young children for late-onset disorders which are not currently treatable is not recommended and tests for such disorders should not be made available direct to the public. Prenatal genetic testing for late-onset disorders should only be undertaken in the context of full genetic counselling, the report recommends.
