Abstract

Management of genetic data needs the fulfillment of technical requirements, involving ethics, law, and social issues. Introduction of genetic information in preventive medicine implies complex consequences and specialized expertise. Genetic screenings represent a promising tool, but further advances are needed to provide their effective and appropriate use in the respect of the privacy. Application areas, tests validation procedures and availability of effective laboratory and qualified service networks are considered. The Authors present main laws and bioethics guidelines in the field.
