Child screening samples are used to check greater than four million babies every year for life-threatening ailments which are treatable if stumbled on at delivery. those specimens additionally signify a probably precious source for public overall healthiness and biomedical study. The IOM held a workshop to envision concerns surrounding using residual specimens for translational examine.

Challenges and Opportunities in Using Residual Newborn Screening Samples for Translational Research: Workshop Sum 20 Using Residual Newborn Screening Samples The number one concern that parents feel, in Waldo’s opinion, is protectiveness toward children. “Every parent understands this, particularly if you have a newborn,” she said. ” Some of the fears about potential harm to children are vague and inchoate, but that does not mean that they are invalid.

Iowa, for example, allows studies related to newborn screening, studies that can affect the health of a child from whom no other specimens are available, and studies that can inform existing public health surveillance activities. In some states, the language of policies or laws refers simply to medical research as a permissible use of newborn screening samples (see Box 4-1 for examples of permitted uses). State laws or regulations on the secondary use of residual newborn screening samples typically only allow access by health department personnel, laboratory personnel, or researchers and other individuals who have been granted departmental approval.
