Utvidgad anlagsbärartestning kan bredda fosterdiagnostiken - Recessiva sjukdomsanlag kan kartläggas hos friska personer inför planerad graviditet

Abstract

Due to recent advances in molecular genetic testing, massive parallel sequencing has become possible at an affordable cost for health care. Thus, it is now possible to test healthy young persons for carriership of mutations in many genes for severe recessive genetic conditions – extended genetic carrier testing. The introduction of this test in Swedish health care must be accompanied by ethical considerations, education of stakeholders, health care staff and the public.
