NEWBORN SCREENING
`1800

The aim of newborn screening is to detect diagnostic markers of treatable disorders in blood spots collected from pre-symptomatic newborns. Early identification of disorders significantly improves long term prognosis of affected patients, minimizes complications, avoids unnecessary diagnostic testing and identifies families for whom pre-natal genetic counselling may be helpful.
