secondary findings

Researchers identified secondary or incidental findings in just over 3 percent of the nearly 22,000 EMERGE III participants, who were profiled with a 109-gene panel.

The national project has developed infrastructure for implementing genomics into clinical care and is now studying clinical utility and cost effectiveness.

Counselors in Demand

Mount Sinai's Eric Schadt writes at Spectrum that genetic counselors help people cope with incidental genetic findings.

Starting in early 2019, Yale plans to sign up at least 100,000 patients to analyze their genomes and EHR data for research and return of clinically actionable results.

With this model, the Geisinger team disclosed secondary genomic findings to 95 percent of the MyCode Community Health Initiative participants with such results.

HudsonAlpha researchers analyzed the genomes of parents whose children were in a study of developmental delay and intellectual disability for secondary findings.

Researchers detected excess genetic risk and/or misclassification when profiling ClinVar variants in ACMG-59 and OrphaNet genes using genome and exome sequences.

In a pilot study of 92 individuals with familial or suspected genetic chronic kidney disease, researchers successfully diagnosed 24 percent of cases with exome sequencing.

The company, a division of cardiology clinic Spera Medical, is offering WGS with annual clinical reports as part of a long-term research study.

An ACMG workgroup has added four new genes, removed one gene, and said it would open up the nomination process to the broader community and consider PGx genes.
