Genetic data is handled carelessly and irresponsibly
It has become a fact that if personal information, data or records can be abused, then they will be abused. One area after another has reported breaches of confidentiality and security defects.
“But there has long been a great disregard, if not irresponsibility, amongst administrators and politicians who have decided that, for example, personal and identifiable health information should be available to those who need to plan health policy, research, and national security.”
Ole Hartling, Consultant and former chairman for The Ethics Council
Personalized medicine can probably benefit many people
The ambition is to spread gene analysis technology and personalized medicine to even more areas of disease and to understand diseases in a whole new way. It can probably benefit patients who suffer from cancer, brain diseases, rare diseases and also prevalent diseases:
“Right now doctors must often use trial and error until they find the medication that works for an individual patient. We can change this with Personalized Medicine and make the treatment more effective and with fewer side effects,” says Ellen Trane Nørby.
