When we are making investments, for example in prevention, it is usually the marginal productivity that is of interest for the allocation of resources. Let me give an example. Mammography is a very useful technology for detecting breast tumours and thereby preventing later mortality due to carcinoma of the breast. When we are going to decide about a screening programme for breast cancer using mammography, we are not mainly interested in the average productivity of such a programme. The marginal productivity of extending the programme to certain age groups and of increasing the number of screenings per time period is of great interest for policy.

Hence, by gene mapping analysis and using a battery of restriction enzymes and radioactive probes, different-lengthed fragments of DNA will ‘light up’ according to the presence or absence of these polymorphic sites. Such restriction fragment length polymorphisms (RFLPs) provide many genetic markers that can be used to trace mutant genes to which they are linked through successive generations of families. They have been used successfully for the prenatal diagnosis of thalassaemia and sickle cell anaemia, using amniotic fluid cells (Kan & Dozy 1978, Kazazian et a1 1980) or chorion biopsy (Old et a1 1982).
