Background and Brief Description The success of the Human Genome Project has led to increasingly rapid translation of genomic information into clinical applications. Genetic tests for about 1,200 diseases have been developed, with more than 900 currently available for clinical testing. Most are used for diagnosis of rare genetic diseases, but a growing number have population-based applications, including carrier identification, predictive testing for inherited risk for common diseases, and pharmacogenetic testing for variation in drug response. These tests have the potential for broad public health impact. Currently, most genetic testing offered in the United States does not involve the use of U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved test kits. Tests are developed as in-house or ‘‘home brew’’ assays and marketed by laboratories as clinical laboratory services with limited oversight. A number of issues have been raised about the current status of genetic testing implementation, including the need to develop evidence to establish efficacy and cost-effectiveness before tests are commercialized. There is also an increasingly urgent need for timely and reliable information that allows health professionals to distinguish genetic tests that have demonstrated validity and utility in clinical practice. Recommendations on the development of safe and effective genetic tests have been produced by advisory panels (e.g. Task Force on Genetic Testing, Secretary’s Advisory Committee on Genetic Testing), professional organizations, and clinical experts since 1995.
