Maple syrup urine disease: further evidence that newborn screening may fail to identify variant forms.
The NHS Newborn Blood Spot Screening programme will be expanded to screen for homocystinuria (HCU), maple syrup urine disease (MSUD), glutaric aciduria type 1 (GA1) and isovaleric acidaemia (IVA).
At present, the NBS in the country includes screening of six disorders: congenital hypothyroidism, congenital adrenal hyperplasia, phenylketonuria, glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase deficiency, galactosemia and maple syrup urine disease. The expanded screening will also include 22 more disorders such as hemoglobinopathies and additional metabolic disorders, namely organic acid, fatty acid oxidation, and amino acid disorders.
But the new scheme will check the same blood sample for five extra conditions: maple syrup urine disease, homocystinuria and three types of acidaemia.
Individuals with Phenylketonuria (PKU), Maple Syrup Urine Disease (MSUD), Tyrosinemia, Urea Cycle Disorders and Homocystinuria, which all require low-protein diets, are aware of this, and have been forced to endure medicinal tasting meals.
