Birth Defects in Babies that Appear Perfectly Health

Each year over 7.9 Million babies are born with birth defects, most of which appear perfectly healthy at birth and come from families with no history of the disorder. Many affected babies are not identified until the appearance of severe and often irreversible symptoms later in life.

Many countries run publicly funded programmes to screen newborns for inherited diseases.

Currently, all Hong Kong-born babies are screened for five common conditions including congenital hypothyroidism, cystic fibrosis, amino acid disorders including phenylketonuria, organic acidemias and fatty acid oxidation defects.

There are a growing number of conditions that could be considered for inclusion in newborn screening programmes and these include, among others, severe combined immunodeficiency and lysosomal storage disease.

This leaves thousands of newborns unscreened for any number of potentially manageable disorders and adverse drug reactions.

只是看起來很健康,但卻隱藏著缺陷

每年有超過790萬嬰兒出生時已有缺陷,其中大多數出生時看起來非常健康,來自沒有這種疾病史的家庭。 許多受影響的嬰兒直到後期出現嚴重及不可逆轉的症狀才被發現。

許多國家開展了公共資助計劃,以篩查新生兒的遺傳性疾病。

目前,所有在香港出生的嬰兒都接受了五種常見疾病的篩查,包括先天性甲狀腺功能減退症,囊性纖維化,氨基酸障礙,包括苯丙酮尿症,有機酸血症和脂肪酸氧化缺陷。

但更多的病症應該納入新生兒篩查計劃,其中包括嚴重的聯合免疫缺陷和溶酶體貯積病。這使得數以千計的新生兒未經過篩查,無法治療任何可能導致的疾病和藥物不良反應。

NOVA™ is suitable for newborns and children up to 5 years of age. NOVA™ Screens for 50 inherited disorders, which have a combined prevalence rate of 1/400 births. NOVA™ aims to achieve early detection, referral and treatment of all babies identified as high risk of these disorders.
