FDA’s Risk Assessment of Bifurcated Direct-to-Consumer Genetic Testing

The past decade has seen the emergence of bifurcated direct-to-consumer genetic testing entities—entities that either sequence genomic material (producing a list of a person’s As, Ts, Cs, and Gs) or that interpret the genomic sequence to provide information about a person’s predisposition to disease. Unlike entities that directly sell only the sequences, entities that produce genomic information fall within FDA’s current interpretation of a “device” and challenge its ability to classify genomic information on the basis of perceived risk and apply standard risk mitigation strategies.
