For example, testing for breast cancer susceptibility is extremely expensive, largely due to the patent protection that Myriad Genetics, the test developer, currently enjoys. This testing has been aggressively marketed to physicians and to potential patients, but the price tag permits access only for relatively wealthy women. The aggressive marketing generates demand for a test that has limited clinical utility for most women (Mouchawar et al. 2005). As a result, women may struggle to pay for the test, when neither they nor their physician realizes that they are not appropriate candidates for testing.
