Carnitine transporter deficiency (CTD) and holocarboxylase synthetase deficiency (HLCSD) are frequent in The Faroe Islands compared to other areas, and treatment is available for both disorders. In order to evaluate the feasibility of neonatal screening in The Faroe Islands we studied detection in the neonatal period by tandem mass spectrometry, carrier(More)
BACKGROUND Several studies have implicated early infections, including maternal infection with herpes simplex virus 2 (HSV-2), as an environmental risk factor for schizophrenia. METHODS A case-control study nested within the national Danish birth cohort constituted by the PKU Biobank covering all children born in Denmark since 1981. 602 cases of(More)
A total of 5000 consecutively samples newborn screening cards were anonymously selected for screening for the apolipoprotein B-3500 (apo B-3500) mutation, which causes familial defective apolipoprotein B-100 (FDB). The mutation was found in 5 of 5000 Danish children, of whom 2 were twins. This indicates a lower prevalence of this mutation in Danes than that(More)
OBJECTIVE There is a substantial evidence base linking prenatal exposure to infectious agents and an increased risk of schizophrenia. However, there has been less research examining the potential for these exposures to also contribute to risk for bipolar disorder. The aim of this study was to examine the association between neonatal markers of selected(More)
OBJECTIVE Adiponectin levels measured in neonatal dried blood spot samples (DBSS) might be affected by both prematurity and being born small for gestational age (SGA). The aim of the study was to measure adiponectin levels in routinely collected neonatal DBSS taken on day 5 (range 3-12) postnatal from infants. DESIGN A retrospective case-control study. (More)
Neutral tube defects (NTDs) occur at an incidence of about 0.01 per cent, and in Denmark 40-50 new cases are recorded annually. Although the metabolism of folic acid increases during pregnancy, the dietary supply is marginal. Finding in recent studies suggest that folic acid supplementation as prophylactic treatment of gravidae reduces the incidence of(More)
