from Science Daily
A fatal genetic disorder that frequently takes years to diagnose may soon be detectable with a simple blood test, researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis and the National Institutes of Health report in Science Translational Medicine. For patients with Niemann-Pick type C disease, the test will make it possible to begin treatment earlier, when it is more likely to improve quality of life and to further extend lives.
