New born Screening Can Save Thousands of Human Lives
Academic Responsible:
Dr. P. D. Gupta, Academic Member, ATINER & Former, Director Grade Scientist, Centre for Cellular and Molecular Biology, India.
Lives and health of those who have no voice should be everybody’s concern. Roughly 8 million children are either still born or die each year with in the first month of their life. This figure never makes a news. Newborn screening is the practice of testing all babies in their first days of life for certain disorders including genetic and metabolic and conditions that can hinder their normal development. Early detection and treatment can help prevent intellectual and physical disabilities and life-threatening illnesses. Most of the conditions included in newborn screening can cause serious health problems if treatment is not started shortly after birth. Prompt identification and management of these conditions may be able to prevent life-threatening complications. A positive result does not mean that a baby definitely has a disease, but it indicates that diagnostic testing, should be performed as soon as possible. If the baby does have the disease, quick follow-up testing can allow treatment or management, such as a special diet, to begin very soon after birth.
