The development of precision medicine is in full swing, and the commercialization of genetic testing needs to be cautious

genetic testing is a key content of precision medicine. For example, by studying genes, we can find the corresponding relationship between a certain disease and a specific gene morphology, and prevent and intervene it in advance

during the "double National Day" this year, many companies discounted the base 2980.79 carbon structural steel due to the testing package, and claimed that they could test "IQ" and "talent", which attracted many people to rush to buy. A company has launched a 499 yuan gene testing package, which can carry out ancestral analysis, sports genes, nutritional metabolism, health risks and other tests. The number of tweets attached to this detection package exploded "100000 +" in one day, and 300 detection packages were robbed

gene detection is a key content of precision medicine. For example, by studying genes, we can find the corresponding relationship between a certain disease and a specific gene morphology, and prevent and intervene it in advance. In early pregnancy, if the fetus is found to have obvious genetic defects, these materials also have great potential in electric infrastructure to select the fetus. Many types of cancer, hypertension, diabetes and other chronic diseases can find the corresponding gene morphology, which is of great benefit to the study of diseases or precise treatment

however, gene detection technology may also be abused. Genetic testing is a cutting-edge technology. Scientific research and application of achievements must be rigorous and orderly. Only when a certain research achievement is proved to have clinical application value and passes a certain threshold of access, it can be cautiously used in clinical practice. Unfortunately, at present, some commercial genetic testing will take the unknown as a fact, apply immature technology to diagnosis and treatment, and even take it for granted to introduce some commercial concepts. Although these projects are under the guise of high technology, they are actually playing the trick of pseudoscience, and the purpose is nothing more than a word of profit

being realistic and pragmatic and enduring loneliness are the necessary qualities of scientific researchers. Genetic testing should not consume uncertain and immature research results in advance, nor should it rub against a social hot spot. It should only say one thing and abandon ambiguous words such as "maybe" and "probably". It cannot be ruled out that there are regular scientific research institutions or medical institutions that want to take advantage of the "double 11" to carry out some publicity and carry out some projects. However, more gene testing is promoted through the "double 11", and the catheter plays a very important role in this kind of support, but it is just illegal to make money. For example, the 499 yuan gene testing package, which is very popular, violates the basic scientific and technological ethics and business ethics. Spying on innate intelligence and predicting health risks are tricks that fortune tellers are good at. If someone really believes it, it's a small matter to waste money unjustly, which affects the judgment of their own ability and physical state, it's a big deal

Only when a certain research achievement is proved to have clinical application value, it can be widely used in clinical practice
