Newborn Screening - State Information
Hunter’s Hope Advocates for Expanded & Universal
This means we advocate for every state to screen for the maximum number
of diseases possible and that all states screen universally for the same
diseases. Otherwise, a child's chance for a healthy life depends on the
state they are born in.
Krabbe and other LSDs
Hunter's Hope advocates screening for six disorders called Lysosomal Storage Diseases - Krabbe, Pompe, Gaucher, Niemann-Pick, Fabry and Hurler Syndrome.
These disorders can be cost-effectively screened together. These
disorders must be diagnosed early to save children's lives.
it is critical they be screened for at birth.
In addition to the Lysosomal disorders noted above, we advocate screening for the 55 disorders on the American College of Medical Genetics (ACMG) and the
Secretary Advisory Committee on Heritable Disorders in Infants and Newborns recommended minimum screening panel.
