5/4/2013 Example—breast cancer HER2 oncogene Over-expressed in 25-30% patients Cancer cell replication increased Treat w/Herceptin, a monoclonal antibody inhibiting HER2 BENEFITS Herceptin targets ONLY cancerous cells, thus eliminating need to administer large drug doses Identification of ONLY patients w/gene over-expression, thus preventing unnecessary treatments There are dramatic implications with genetic technologies on the health professions, their education and on patient care. Genetic services are not always adequately linked into medical specialties and there is a shortage of resources to bring new genetic-based techniques into mainstream health service provision. As more becomes known about how faulty genes cause disease, a new generation of therapeutics based on an individual’s genetic makeup and drug design is and will be revolutionary.

5/4/2013 Sequencing cost over time… Moore’s Law: a computing term which originated around 1970; the simplified version of this law states that processor speeds, or overall processing power for computers will double every two years. MLA 2013 CE---Iwema---U.Pittsburgh

10 Personal Genomics, Personalized Medicine, & You
5/4/2013 What is Personal Genomics? Sequencing & analysis of an individual’s genome Looks for mutations & differences in your genome compared to others Whole Genome Sequencing (WGS) vs Genotyping vs Exome sequencing Genotype versus Phenotype "Genotype" is an organism's full hereditary information. "Phenotype" is an organism's actual observed properties, such as morphology, development, or behavior. MLA 2013 CE---Iwema---U.Pittsburgh

5/4/2013 This graphic shows the chromosomes arranged in a circular orientation, shown as wedges, marked with a length scale. Data placed outside of the chromosome ring represents degree of small- and large- scale variation in the genome at a given position found between different populations. Data placed on top of the chromosome ring highlights positions of genes implicated in disease, such as cancer, diabetes, and glaucoma. Data placed inside the ring links disease-related genes found in the same biochemical pathway (grey) and the degree of similarity for a subset of the genome (colored). MLA 2013 CE---Iwema---U.Pittsburgh

13 Personal Genomics, Personalized Medicine, & You
5/4/2013 SNP: single nucleotide polymorphism DNA sequence variations that occur when a single nucleotide (A, C, T, G) in the genome sequence is altered Variations in DNA sequence have an impact on how humans respond to disease Must occur in at least 1% of the population SNP maps help identify genes associated with complex ailments MLA 2013 CE---Iwema---U.Pittsburgh

5/4/2013 GINA: Prohibits genetic discrimination in health insurance & employment Title 1: Prohibits discrimination in group and individual health insurance plans. Forbids genetic information being used to deny coverage, adjust premiums, or require someone to take a genetic test. Title 2: Prohibits employers from using genetic information to make hiring, firing or promotion decisions. Severely limits employers rights to request, require, or purchase an employee’s genetic information. Jan 1, 2011 California Governor Jerry Brown signed into law civil rights protections to prevent discrimination against people based on their genetic information. Authored by State Sen. Alex Padilla, the California law the use of genetic information to discriminate against a person in housing, employment, education, health insurance, life insurance, mortgage lending and elections.

5/4/2013 Are Genes Patentable? 2009 BRCA1 and BRCA2 Back & forth in court (Supreme Court 4/15/13) Isolated genes CANNOT be patented, but cDNA CAN (9-0) (6/13/13) Myriad sued Ambry Genetics & Gene by Gene 2014: GxG settled; Ambry denied Australiaupheld Myriad’s claim! Also in Australia! 20% genes in human genome patented; big deal in 1980s, 1990s (4K out of 23K) 40,000 patents over 30 yrs Myriad holds patents on the genes along with the University of Utah Research Foundation. As a result, Myriad is the only company that can market a test for the mutations. Will patenting DNA sequences limit their accessibility and development into useful products? 11/30/2012 Supreme Court granted a writ of certiorari, meaning agreed to hear appeal on question: “are human genes patentable?” Thus, 4 judges have something to say… Final decision on one ruling: the bulk of Myriad’s challenged diagnostic method patents are invalid Ruling: “Myriad did not create anything,” Thomas wrote. “To be sure, it found an important and useful gene, but separating that gene from its surrounding genetic material is not an act of invention.” He added that “groundbreaking, innovative, or even brilliant discovery does not by itself” overcome the fact that “laws of nature, natural phenomena, and abstract ideas” are beyond the domain of patent protection.” “ I.e. isolated genomic DNA NOT patentable, but cDNA is MLA 2013 CE---Iwema---U.Pittsburgh

5/4/2013 Incidental Findings? 22 March 2013 Labs performing genome/exome clinical sequencing to also report on 56 specific genes No age restrictions, no choice to not know (since revised to include opt out) Clinicians provide pre- & post-test counseling Modified as needed due to technical advances Only guidelines! Presidential Bioethics: Anticipate & Communicate, Dec 2013: The ACMG acknowledge “there are insufficient data on clinical utility to fully support these recommendations… and… insufficient evidence about benefits, risks and costs of disclosing incidental findings to make evidence-based recommendations”. Yet, they clearly felt the need to draw a line in the sand and create a starting point. This is a bold and fearless move. Recently, the ACMG released recommendations for return of incidental findings  following genome or exome sequencing, garnering a great deal of attention in the science media and some in the popular media as well – most of it stressing two points: the fact that the guidelines call for certain results to be returned regardless of patient preferences, and that they call for the same results to be returned regardless of patient age.  These are big departures from current practice, and they have drawn a lot of fire for going too far (or for not going far enough).

30 Genetic Counselors 5/4/2013 Analysis is key!!!
Genetics counselors are professionals who have completed a masters program and then have to pass a certification exam administered by the American Board of Genetic Counseling. Evaluating family history and medical records Order genetic tests Evaluate the results of investigation Help people understand and reach decisions about what to do next Most couples planning a pregnancy or who are expecting, don’t need genetic counseling. The best time to seek genetic counseling is before pregnancy, when counseling can help assess risk factors.

35 Noninvasive Fetal Sequencing
Personal Genomics, Personalized Medicine, & You 5/4/2013 Noninvasive Fetal Sequencing Noninvasive sequencing of human fetuses holds clinical utility. Since the approaches pioneered by Kitzman and Fan don’t rely on amniocentesis or chorionic villous sampling (CVS) for obtaining fetal DNA, they do not pose a risk to the developing fetus. Both amniocentesis and CVS are invasive procedures that carry a small risk of miscarriage. But it’s likely going to take some time before fetal sequencing is actually offered to the general public. The costs need to drop significantly — it’s currently around $20,000-$50,000 per fetal genome. More work is also needed to refine the approach and improve the accuracy. I am your father.

5/4/2013 Perils of genetic testing How much should we fear discrimination at work and with insurance? What are the privacy concerns for individual and families? How realistic are promises of anonymity? How can we ensure access for all who want to be sequenced? Will fair weight given to environmental & social factors? Analysis analysis analysis! Variation issues What surprises and secrets might be revealed? How far ahead is the technology of its clinical usefulness? MLA 2013 CE---Iwema---U.Pittsburgh

5/4/2013 1997 Gattaca is film with Ethan Hawke and Uma Thurman. The plot: Gattaca Corp. is an aerospace firm in the future. During this time society analyzes your DNA and determines where you belong in life. Ethan Hawke's character was born with a congenital heart condition which would cast him out of getting a chance to travel in space. So in turn he assumes the identity of an athlete who has genes that would allow him to achieve his dream of space travel. He is one of the last "natural" babies born into a sterile, genetically-enhanced world, where life expectancy and disease likelihood are ascertained at birth. Myopic and due to die at 30, he has no chance of a career in a society that now discriminates against your genes, instead of your gender, race or religion.
