Newborn screening for Tyr-I: two years' experience of the New York State program.


PMID 21441051

Abstract

In 2 years, the New York newborn screening program has analyzed approximately 500,000 samples for succinylacetone (SUAC), the biomarker for Tyrosinemia, type I. There have been five screen-positive results. Two of these results were considered borderline, and a repeat specimen was requested. In three cases, an immediate referral was made to a specialty care center. Two of those three cases were confirmed for Tyr-I.
