Abstract

This volume provides an in-depth case study of the operation of a prenatal genetic screening and testing system. The methodology integrates observational, qualitative interview and survey data. The perspectives of pregnant women, hospital doctors and midwives are explored in depth, as is the communication between women and the hospital doctors who advise them. The book offers insights which are relevant to those concerned with the rapidly growing field of genetic risk management.

Abstract

Né avec la révolution génétique dans le courant des années 70, le diagnostic prénatal est encore méconnu aujourd'hui, quoique très généralisé. La première partie détaille les outils du diagnostic (échographies, marqueurs sériques, conseil génétique...), la deuxième partie est un essai dans lequel l'auteur prend position contre la dérive eugénique de notre société.

Abstract

An expert in the field of social and biological ethics offers an analysis of the impact of scientists' ever-increasing knowledge of the genetic basis of life on family, society, and mortality. Scientists are racing to unravel the code of life in our DNA sequences. But once we know the code, will we know what life means? Will we know what to do with the powerful information we will have? Barbara Katz Rothman examines the current trends and applications of genetics research on race, illness and procreation. She explores new genetics in the light of her work as a sociologist who has studied motherhood and women's experiences with prenatal genetic testing, her participation in the new world of bioethical discussions of genetics, and her personal experiences as a mother in an interracial family. Her book aims to help the reader think about the place of genetic science in our own lives, its role in our social world and how we choose to think about think about human life itself.

Abstract

This volume examines, from both ethical and clinical perspectives, the impact of increasing genetic knowledge on individuals and families. The authors use their experience of working within clinical genetics to describe the social implications arising from the ability to test for an increasing number of genetic diseases. Current controversial issues are described. Several chapters are based on lead articles and editorials the authors have been asked to write for "The Lancet" and the "British Medical Journal". The book provides an introduction to the effects on individuals of the practical issues associated with genetic testing and should, therefore, be of interest to all those involved in clinical genetics.

Abstract

Analyzes the social-psychological and ethical implications of invasive prenatal testing, particularly CVS and amniocentesis. Among the issues covered are: the challenge of nondirective genetic counselling; decisions on testing and which test to have; and the ethics of sex education. Testing for genetic abnormalities has transformed pregnancy and motherhood, and the recent discoveries by the Human Genome Project affect us all. In this updated version of their important book with its new Afterword, the authors have incorporated the most recent prenatal testing information. Using their own research, the authors analyze the psycho-social and ethical implications of genetic testing. Among the issues discussed in the new Afterword are the spread of prenatal testing, the changing meanings of pregnancy, and the perils and promises of the Human Genome Project.

Abstract

Cet ouvrage apportera à ceux qui s'interrogent sur cette nouvelle science, et sur le nouveau champ psychologique qu'ouvre le diagnostic prénatal, les références aux différentes disciplines qui coopèrent dans ce domaine désormais très important dans la vie des familles. Dans ce livre, donc, des représentants éminents de chacune de ces disciplines livrent, non seulement leurs réflexions théoriques, mais également l'état de leurs avancées cliniques. Aussi les psychiatres de la petite enfance, les psychologues, et les soignants de la périnatalité - gynécologues, obstétriciens, sages-femmes, infirmières - découvriront-ils ici que les progrès dans la prévention et dans le déroulement de la grossesse dus au diagnostic prénatal ont leur contrepoint : leur aspect psychologique. C'est dire que les réflexions éthiques et morales y seront largement développées.

Abstract

Aux côtés de la mucoviscidose, de l'hémophilie ou de la trisomie 21, il existe bien d'autres maladies génétiques. L'hypertension artérielle, le diabète sucré ou l'asthme peuvent avoir une forte composante génétique. Philippe Labrune fait état de ces différentes maladies et s'intéresse aux perspectives thérapeutiques actuelles que sont le conseil génétique et le diagnostic prénatal. Il aborde ensuite les aspects plus pratiques que sont l'examen et la prise en charge d'un enfant porteur de malformations en s'appuyant sur l'exemple de quelques cas cliniques.
