In a review published this past April, a task force of the American Psychiatric Association’s research council concluded that such genetic testing is not ready for prime time in their field. “Although some of the preliminary published data sound promising,” the task force members wrote, “there is insufficient evidence to support widespread use of combinatorial pharmacogenetic decision support tools at this point in time.”

Dr. Bruce Cohen, a Harvard Medical School psychiatrist who previously ran McLean Hospital and is now on staff there, told STAT he would not order Color’s test or any of the other comparable tests on the market for his patients. “They cost a lot of money, and they have absolutely no proven value,” he said.
