Abstract

Responsibility means responding to the dam- aging consequences of technical work and in this binding perspective the general principles of guilt in genetic diag- nostics and related activities are not different from any other medical performance. Performing a genetic test however, especially when it has predictive characteristics, offers absolutely peculiar technical deontological issues. It is not and should not be considered as a mere habitual laboratory test but as a complex set of interactions that presupposes adequate information as a valid consensus to formalize absolutely in written form.
