Knowledge and Attitudes about Privacy and Secondary Data Use among African-Americans Using Direct-to-Consumer Genetic Testing.
Ziegler Emily et al. Public health genomics 2022 9 1-10

This study found that African-American consumers of DTC GT had a positive outlook about genetic testing and were open to research and some nonresearch uses, provided that they were able to give informed consent. Participants in this study had little knowledge of company practices regarding secondary uses. Compared to an earlier cohort of European American participants, African-American participants expressed more concerns about medical and law enforcement communities’ use of data and more reference to community engagement.

Sickle Cell Disease and Gene Therapy - Patient and Physician Perspectives.
DeBaun Michael et al. The New England journal of medicine 2022 9 (13) e28

In this short documentary video, patients and physicians partner both to highlight the experience of living with sickle cell disease and to discuss the pathophysiology of the disease and new treatment strategies, including gene therapy. Patients share their own stories of interactions with the health care system and explore the challenging topics of racial disparity and health equity. Physicians express a cautious optimism as they review the risks and benefits of gene therapy.

The AI life cycle: a holistic approach to creating ethical AI for health decisions
MY Ng et al, Nature Medicine, September 26, 2022

Artificial intelligence (AI) has the potential to revolutionize many aspects of clinical care, but it can also lead to patient and community harm, the misallocation of health resources and the exacerbation of existing health inequities, which greatly threaten its overall efficacy and social impact1. These issues have prompted the movement toward ethical AI, a field devoted to raising and addressing ethical issues related to the development and application of AI.

Tackling bias in AI health datasets through the STANDING Together initiative
S Ganapathi et al, Nature Medicine, September 26, 2022

Despite the enormous potential of Artificial Intelligence (AI) as a Medical Device (AIaMDs), their rapid growth in healthcare has been accompanied by concerns that AI models may learn biases engrained in medical practice and exacerbate health inequalities. This has been exemplified by several AI systems that have shown the ability of algorithms to systematically misrepresent and exacerbate health problems in minority groups.
