Analysis of the human genome
CP Resolution concerning a specific program for health research: Analysis of the Human Genome

Resolution

From the CP Subcommitee on Medical Ethics concerning EC Commission's Program on a specific program for health research: Predictive Medicine: Analysis of the Human Genome (1989­1991) (COM(88) 424 final SYN 146) and the statement of the Economic and Social Committee (CES 1342/88 SYN 146) and Resolution of the European Parliament of March 1989 (OJ NOC96/165­73) on that proposal.

The Standing Committee of Doctors of the EC (CP) has considered the Commission Proposal for a research program in the field of predictive medicine as well as the statement of the ESC on that proposal. It has also studied the Resolution issued by the European Parliament concerned with the same subject.

Although the proposed research program is not likely to have immediate practical consequences for man and society at large, in the longer term it could have profound implications which necessitates the immediate undertaking of a thorough analysis of the ethical aspects involved.

The CP welcomes the ESC evaluation of actions that will be required in implementing the proposal.

The CP supports the recommendation of the ESC to set up an ethical council composed of representatives of the relevant sectors to establish the limits of gene research, define the ethical criteria, and elaborate a basic ethical code in this respect.

The CP wishes to express its concern regarding the possible wide­ranging implications for man and society of the application of techniques for analyzing the human genome.

In view of the importance of the contribution of the medical profession to this ethical debate, the CP considers it essential that, as the representative body of the medical profession in the EC, it be present on any such ethical council and necessary that it be consulted regarding the elaboration of any guidelines and codes as well as regarding the ensuing supervision of the program.
