The FDA said it also had crafted streamlined procedures to make it easier for other makers to develop and submit similar tests for approval. In addition, this may nudge them to make key changes in their lifestyle choices to minimize the incidence of these diseases.
The U.S. FDA has expressed the intention to allow for a mechanism for exempting subsequent GHRs from the genetic testing company. Additional research confirms this information can be identified from a saliva sample.
Sharon Terry, the CEO of the Genetic Alliance, a nonprofit organization that advocates for health care for people with genetic disorders, likens it to another consumer test. "Women learn they are pregnant using a test directly marketed to them and buy it off the shelf in a drugstore", she told NPR. Often, patients were required to see a genetic counselor before getting a test.
