The Increasing incidence of congenital hypothyroidism in the United States : current trends and future directions( Book )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In response to published newborn-screening data that have shown an increase in the incidence (birth prevalence) rate of primary congenital hypothyroidism (CH) in the United States, a workshop was held in Atlanta, Georgia, on February 27 and 28, 2008, to examine this issue. Topics of the meeting included pathophysiology, medical management, and follow-up of CH; transient hypothyroidism (etiology, clinical implications, management, and changes in prevalence); risk factors for CH; laboratory approaches to newborn screening for CH; state-specific evaluations of trends in incidence rates of CH; and concluding discussions on future directions to resolve outstanding issues. Through presentations and discussion, gaps in knowledge were identified, such as the lack of consistent definitions for CH and transient hypothyroidism and the effects of preventable risk factors on incidence rates of CH. One outcome of the meeting was a series of accompanying articles that examined (1) trends in the incidence rates of CH in individual states and nationally, (2) effects of newborn-screening practices on CH incidence rates, (3) the contribution of transient hypothyroidism to CH-incidence rates, and (4) future research directions. In this summary, we briefly touch on the topics of these articles and examine highlights of other presentations from the workshop that illuminated the secular trends in reported CH-incidence rates in the United States."--Page S31

Using tandem mass spectrometry for metabolic disease screening among newborns : a report of a Work Group( Book )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Increasingly, tandem mass spectrometry (MS/MS) is being used for newborn screening because this laboratory testing technology substantially increases the number of metabolic disorders that can be detected from dried blood-spot specimens. In June 2000, the National Newborn Screening and Genetics Resource Center, in collaboration with CDC and the Health Resources and Services Administration, convened a workshop in San Antonio, Texas. Workshop participants examined programmatic concerns for health providers choosing to integrate MS/MS technology into their newborn screening activities. Representatives from approximately 50 public and private health agencies and universities participated in the workshop. The workshop participants and work group focused on laboratory methodology, decision criteria, quality assurance, diagnostic protocols, patient case management, and program evaluation for using MS/MS to analyze dried blood spots routinely collected from newborns. This work group report contains proposals for planning, operating, and evaluating MS/MS technology in newborn screening and maternal and child health programs. As a supplement to these proposals, this report contains synopses of selected presentations made at the 2000 workshop regarding integration of MS/MS technology into newborn screening programs. The proposals contained in this report should assist policymakers, program managers, and laboratorians in making informed decisions regarding the process of including MS/MS technology in their newborn screening and maternal and child health programs
