Today is Rare Disease Day. It’s an appropriate day to announce we have come one step closer to a MLD Newborn Screen!
The pilot study to test the newly developed MLD Newborn assay/technique on current newborn babies born in Washington state will be starting within the next three months once testing lab equipment is in place.
The MLD Foundation will continue to push forward until all newborns are tested for MLD. Thank you Dr. Michael Gelb for your tireless work to make MLD newborn screening a reality.
