“Previously, the most complex genetic research, on which the lives and health of children depend, had to be carried out in cramped conditions. Now the specialists are proud to show their new laboratory. The room is six times larger than the old one, it meets all modern requirements. Here, prenatal screening is carried out when fetal developmental disorders are found in the first weeks of pregnancy. It is only in this laboratory in Kuzbass that neonatal screening is done, which makes it possible to detect serious diseases in a child on the fourth day after appearance,”said the Governor of Kuzbass Sergei Tsivilev in social networks. The area of ​​the laboratory is 300 square meters, specialists will conduct over 140 thousand studies per year. Prenatal screening is carried out in 83% of pregnancies, the head of Kuzbass instructed the Ministry of Health to increase this number to 100%. Tests can detect abnormalities in the development of the fetus, mutations of chromosomes in DNA, congenital defects. After birth, children are examined for five hereditary diseases: phenylketonuria, hypothyroidism, adrenal cortex dysfunction, galactosemia, and cystic fibrosis. The genetic laboratory conducts research free of charge, within the framework of the compulsory medical insurance program. Earlier, FederalPress wrote that Kuzbass surgeons performed several unique operations, including rescuing a man who had lived for three decades with a bullet in his stomach. Photo: ako.ru.
