Genetic testing and diagnosis - international law comparisons

3 March 2008

The US Genetics and Public Policy Center has made a new internet resource available; the International Law Search facility allows users to search a database of laws in 16 countries related to human cloning, human genetic modification, and reproductive genetic modification. The database contains information derived from a 2004 survey of laws on prenatal genetic testing and preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) by Bartha M. Knoppers and Rosario M. Isasi of the University of Montreal, Canada [Hum Reprod. 2004 19(12):2695-701], but is reportedly to be updated soon.
