IPOPI is pleased to announce the publication of the article “ Newborn screening today and tomorrow” which is the outcome of a session entitled “Newborn screening for primary immunodeficiencies – now what?” held during the International Primary Immunodeficiencies Congress (IPIC) 2023. The report is a joint effort of IPOPI with the moderators and speakers at this session: Prof Frank Staal, Prof James Bonham, Prof Fabian Hauck, Prof Lennart Hammarström and has been published in the International Journal of Neonatal Screening on April 5th, 2024.

The session aimed at exploring the advances in newborn screening (NBS) for severe combined immunodeficiency, starting with the common practice and inserting the discussion into the wider perspective of genomics whilst taking into consideration the ethical aspects of screening as well as incorporating families and the public into the discussions, so as to ensure that NBS for treatable rare disorders continues to be one of the major public health advances of the 20th century.
