Thank You, Walgreens, for Nixing That Off-the-Shelf DNA Test | BNET

After some prodding from the FDA, Walgreens (WAG) will not sell a spit-and-send DNA test that assesses a person’s chances of becoming obese, developing psoriasis, going blind, or having a baby with cystic fibrosis, Tay-Sachs and other genetic disorders. The move snuffs out the national freakout that would have occurred had this product gotten onto store shelves. Usually, it’s good for consumers to have access to cheap, reliable medical devices that give them more information about their health. (If you’ve ever gotten one of those bills from Quest Diagnostics or another test lab, [more...]

Can You Cheat In DNA Paternity Test?

DNA Paternity Test is the recent most widely used method of confirming a biological relationship of a supposed father to a child. There are two ways to perform the said test: 1. Court Admissible Test. This is a collection of samples and is performed through a controlled chain-of-custody procedure with a third party to act as a witness and verify the authenticity of the samples. Obviously this is a cheat proof system if a neutral and qualified third party witness is considered. 2. At-Home DNA Paternity Test. DNA Testing kit is usually sent at home and the person involved is responsible for [more...]

The Good Person Test: “Have you ever told a lie? No matter how ...

One, wrapped up in their definition of “lie”, seems to be that any misrepresentation, no matter how minor or trivial, makes you a liar. Except that this is only the case for grade school children—and even they quickly forget the slight of being told something that was untrue. Why? Because the social animals that we are carefully shape our speech in order to communicate our boundaries. Only a person who is consistently dishonest (pathological), inflicts injury with dishonesty, or commits fraud gets to wear the label “liar.” This is because everyone knows full well that the thresholds [more...]

Technology Review: A Genetic Christmas Story

Some people may have received an unusual gift this holiday season: an ancestry testing kit that uses a small swab of DNA to shed light on near and ancient family history. It sounds, at first, like a novelty item. But the kit may provide long-term assistance to scientists who are hoping to track the history of the human race. In one project, spearheaded by National Geographic Society and IBM, participants buy a kit for $99.95, scrape some skin cells from the inside of their cheek, and send the samples in for analysis. Once the DNA is processed, participants learn their haplogroup -- the [more...]

Out Citys – Prenatal Testing: Divining the Future

Most recently the incredible advances in genetic testing have extended this power. Genetic and prenatal tests can now determine likelihood that a child will be born with a birth defect, chromosome abnormalities, genetic diseases and other conditions, such as spina bifida, cleft palate, Tay Sachs disease, sickle cell anemia, thalassemia, cystic fibrosis, and fragile x syndrome. Pregnant parents who undergo prenatal testing are then at a major decision making crossroads, if doctors or genetic testers inform them that a child is predisposed to such conditions. Should they view this as a [more...]

DUI BLOG: How Body Temperature Changes Breathalyzer Results

As I have said in earlier posts, law enforcement investigation techniques depend largely upon the fictitious premise that all humans are physiologically identical (see “Convicting the Average DUI Suspect"). Without that presumption, field sobriety and breath alcohol tests would not be possible. I have previously discussed many examples of physiological differences — from person to person and within one person from moment to moment — which will directly alter breath or blood alcohol testing (see, for example, “Diabetes and the Counterfeit DUI”, “GERD, Acid Reflux and False [more...]

Baby DNA test: Who is the father? Part II

A baby DNA test is one means of establishing with certainty who the daddy of the unborn child is. One can of course choose to wait till after the child is born although it is important to know that this is not necessary as a paternity test can be conclusively carried out while the mother is still pregnant. How is the Baby DNA testing done? There are two main methods through which the unborn baby’s DNA can be sampled. Amniocentesis: this is carried out anywhere between week 14 and week 20 of the pregnancy and is normally done as a routine procedure to locate abnormalities in the chromosomes. [more...]

Putting Your Personality to Work: Business Collaboration News «

Companies spend a fortune putting people through Myers-Briggs, 360-degree feedback and predictive indexing — in the hope of finding the silver bullet that will alleviate the inevitable clashes that arise in work. Web workers who are telecommuters have to try even harder to reach out to co-workers and clients. Without that on-going on-site “face and feel,” we can become as ephemeral as avatars to those we most deal with in work.

Child Support and Paternity Testing

In the last mentioned case, the person claiming child-support is the one who needs to show proof-of-paternity; while in the previous example, the one who needs to prove a relationship with the child is the one desiring custody. While “reasonable” expectations and common law have traditionally been relied upon, a solid punch has been landed to the stomach of common practices for paternity claims acceptance by the science that backs up DNA testing. Currently, a growing amount of stunned fathers are facing the surprising reality that one, if not more, of the children they believed were [more...]

In a new commentary article Jennifer Wagner from the Institute for Genome Sciences and Policy at Duke University notes that further development – and success – of genetic testing requires “everyone – legislators, bioethicists, geneticists, and others – to be on a level playing field”. The commentary, published in The American Journal of Human Genetics addresses the wider topic of genetic testing, but has implications for nutrigenomics/nutrigenetic tests that are already commercially available. Nutrigenomics is defined as how food and ingested nutrients influence the genome [more...]

Psychometric tests have been used since the early part of the 20th century. They were originally developed for use in educational psychology.

Psychometric tests are a way of assessing a person’s ability or personality in a measured and structured way. They are used to measure the individual differences such as ability, aptitude, interests, personality and other aspects. Psychometric [more...]

In Search of Enlightenment: Stratified Medicine: The Dawn of a Era ...

For the most part, medicine has been deployed on a "one type fits all" mentality to prevent/treat disease. There are of course exceptions and provisos to this. The age or relative health of a patient is often taken into consideration when deciding which course of treatment will be the most safe and effective for a particular patient. A person's medical history (e.g. adverse reactions to a particular treatment, allergies) or lifestyle (e.g. smoker) is also relevant to determining which specific treatment is best for a patient. But beyond those kinds of considerations, prescribing X to treat [more...]

This is a short and sweet commentary about the most recent RADON Testing Law.

Getting Serious About Personal Genomics' Risks

Some aspects of personal genomics (e.g., genetic testing to determine a proper therapeutic treatment) warrant a greater degree of societal intervention than others (e.g., genetic testing to determine geographic ancestry). The challenge is knowing where to draw that line. The risks posed by automobiles, firearms and pharmaceuticals are well-documented whereas, at least for the moment, the risks of personal genomics remain largely hypothetical. In the absence of clear data, the recent trend to deemphasize the benefits of personal genomics while focusing on its risks, and to use those risks as [more...]
