This book presents reviews on recent developments in human genome research and their possible application to the prevention and control of noncommunicable diseases. The progress made in understanding the etiology and pathogenesis of a number of diseases of later life, e.g. hypertension, diabetes mellitus, and cancer, has illustrated that genetic factors and genetic predisposition are very important. Actual and potential applications of new genetic technology for improving health, which raise not only scientific but also ethical and social issues, were therefore considered at the joint WHO/Fondation IPSEN meeting in St. Petersburg in December 1994. There is a need for international collaboration in improving genetic health education at all levels, and in improving health through genetic approaches.
