From 4800 genes can be analyzed with the aid of a unique test. Scientists from Canada have proposed a new method of identifying the majority of deviations from the DNA.
In total, the study involved 20 children who were at that time in the NICU. The results report publishing UPI.com.
Thanks to a new test, scientists were able to identify 8 children with accurate diagnosis. Diagnosis helped to adjust the treatment plan of the children and to improve their quality of life.
Until now, the genetic abnormalities are detected too late. Thanks to modern technology and new methods of early diagnosis will become more accessible and effective.
