DNA tests to provide rapid diagnosis of rare diseases in critically ill infants
from News Medical Life Sciences
Since the technique was introduced in October 2019, around 80 babies and children have been tested and almost half have received a diagnosis. Just one year since the NHS committed to harnessing the power of DNA mapping with the launch of the Genomic Medicine Service in England, these patients are amongst the first in the world to receive the testing as part of routine care. The NHS hopes that in the future, up to 700 patients will benefit each year.
