New England Journal of Medicine leader article on 23andMe and the FDA

Classification: Query
Today's NEJM issue opens in their Perspective section with a short article by George J. Annas, J.D., M.P.H. and Sherman Elias, M.D. entitled "23andMe and the FDA". This is available at http://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJMp1316367?query=TOC and I think it is available for anyone to view (I'm a non-practicing M.D. and receive the Table of Contents by e-mail as a registered user, although I'm not a subscriber). It cites a 62-page FDA article "Paving the Way for Personalized Medicine: FDA’s Role in a New Era of Medical Product Development", which is available for download (free) at http://www.fda.gov/downloads/scienceresearch/specialtopics/p....

The NEJM article just sticks to the facts, there is no sensationalism, and genetic genealogy isn't mentioned. Comments are open through February 19, 2014.
