Predispositional genetic testing of children for adult-onset health risks is typically only used when prevention and screening measures have utility during childhood. Little is known about how children and their parents may use predispositional risk information, including whether it changes their interactions around risk-reducing prevention and screening behaviors. The current study examined perspectives on family interactions around skin cancer prevention and control practices through 1 year af...

Congenital anomalies (CAs) are a leading cause of neonatal death. Many CAs can be diagnosed prenatally. To estimate the prenatal detection rate (PDR) of CA in hospitals participating in the RENAC (National Network of Congenital Anomalies of Argentina) and to analyze the PDR according to different factors. Sources were reports of RENAC from the 2013–2016 period. Congenital anomalies included were those detectable by ultrasound or by a prenatal karyotype. PDR was calculated by region, health subse...

The goal of our study is to describe the prevalence of congenital anomalies (CA) in hospitals of the City of Buenos Aires, Argentina, according to two proxy variables of the socioeconomic level: health subsector, public (PUB) versus private/social security (PRI), and geographical location, northern (N) versus southern (S). The source of data was the National Network of Congenital Anomalies of Argentina (RENAC) (period 2010–2016). From a total of 228,208 births, 4872 newborns with CA were detecte...

Carrier screening, a well-established clinical initiative, has been slow to take advantage of the new possibilities offered by high-throughput next generation sequencing technologies. There is evidence of significant benefit in expanding carrier screening to include multiple autosomal recessive conditions and offering a ‘universal’ carrier screen that could be used for a pan-ethnic population. However, the challenges of implementing such a programme and the difficulties of demonstrating efficacy...

Arab Bedouins (AB) in Israel are traditionally a semi-nomadic population. Their average birth rate is extremely high (birth rate of 5.43, as well is their high consanguinity rate (44%), despite having decreased from 60% in 1992. Additionally, their mean inbreeding coefficient is 0.0238.The high rate of consanguinity results in a high prevalence of recessive genetic and multifactorial disorders as well as high infant mortality rate (11 per 1000 live births). Various genetic diseases are prevalent...

Screening programmes for BRCA1/2 Jewish Founder mutations (JFM) in the Jewish community have been advocated internationally. Implementation of these programmes could decrease morbidity and mortality of BRCA1/2 JFM carriers through the uptake of cancer screening strategies and risk-reducing surgery. An online programme offered to the Sydney Jewish community that delivers pre-test information and collects consent for BRCA1/2 JFM testing via a website is currently being evaluated (JeneScreen). Fort...
