Newborn Screening Test Developed for Rare, Deadly Neurological Disorder

Washington University in St. Louis

Soon after birth, a baby’s blood is sampled and tested for a number of rare inherited conditions, such as cystic fibrosis and sickle cell anemia. Now, a study led by Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis describes a newborn screening test that identifies infants with a progressive neurodegenerative disease, called Niemann-Pick type C (NPC), that typically is not diagnosed until at least age 2, after neurological symptoms have begun to develop.
