The GRIPS recommendations were developed to improve transparency, completeness and quality of the reporting of genetic risk prediction studies.
The guidelines were developed on the basis of existing reporting guidelines; STREGA, REMARK and STARD. The GRIPS statement consists of a checklist of 25 items and an accompanying explanation and elaboration document. It was simultaneously published in several journals e.g. Annals of Internal Medicine, BMJ, Circulation, Cardiovascular Genertics, etc.
