Abstract

The new statement emphasizes four issues: organization of newborn screening programs for PKU and CH; biologic adequacy of the blood sample and how it may influence the rate of false-negative results, and the need for routine rescreening; performance of the screening method and how it may influence the frequency of false-negative test results; and disorders of tetrahydrobiopterin homeostasis and their significance for diagnosis and treatment of infants with positive PKU tests.
