Arizona State University's Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law is looking into whether there are any liability issues associated with personalized medicine, reports The National Law Journal. "Liability is likely to be an increasingly important driver of personalized medicine, but it can be a double-edged sword," say Gary Marchant, who is leading the project. He adds that liability could be a benefit if it drives doctors to take patients' genetic information into account, but it could also be detriment if it leads doctors to order genetic tests to protect themselves.
