New Power Of Personalized Medicine For Baby Described At March Of Dimes Luncheon
Date:12/11/2013

ilding blocks) of an individual's DNA – can be a powerful tool for diagnosing rare and common genetic disorders, the speakers said. Not only can genome sequencing help guide treatment decisions and allow for preventative measures to be taken earlier than ever before, it can actually change treatment and help health care providers better manage a condition.

"Genetic diseases result from a mistake in the DNA code," says Dr. Kingsmore. "Identifying those mistakes in the vastness of the genome is difficult. But once you have a genetic diagnosis, the focus can shift to treatments that target the underpinning mechanism and outcomes. Our work helps get to that point in days."

"Most drug research focuses on adults, and rarely does one investigate the adverse drug reactions a medication might have on a newborn," says Dr. Carleton. "Targeted genome sequencing will let us know which babies will be harmed rather than helped by a drug treatment."

In 2013, the March of Dimes celebrated its 75th Anniversary and its ongoing work to help babies get a healthy start in life. About 4 million babies are born each year in the United States, and all have benefitted the March of Dimes life saving research and education.

The March of Dimes is the leading nonprofit organization for pregnancy and baby health. With chapters nationwide and its premier event, March for Babies, the March of Dimes works to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality.
