Abstract

in English, Hungarian

Due to the rapid development in genomics, genetic markers gain importance in all areas of medicine including prevention, management and therapy of patients. As a result, medicine started to shift away from evidence based procedures to a more personalized one. However, the later one requires high quality validated genetic tests. These new tests appeared as preconceptional, preimplantational, prenatal, presymptomatic, diagnostic and direct to consumer forms. Before approval such tests must be analytically and clinically validated. Broader use of these genetic tests is dependent on their price and reimbursement schemes.
