Maintaining the voice of rare diseases in a new, virtual world: Insights from the European Conference on Rare Diseases (ECRD) 2020
Newborn screening is essential to improve diagnosis and outcomes
Alpharmaxim work closely with industry to provide education around newborn screening and can help to drive awareness of newborn screening panels. It is important to increase the number of newborn screening panels and harmonise their number and size across Europe. Newborn screening:
- Allows for early diagnosis and, therefore, management of rare genetic diseases
- Could have a significant impact on the burden on healthcare systems and patients/families
- Could lead to a reduction in later misdiagnosis and suffering
Be prepared to truly demonstrate your commitment to the rare disease field, particularly in these uncertain times.
