Newborn screening programs rely on understanding the benefits and harms of screening, but the rarity of conditions hampers generation of high-quality data. The Early Check study, a partnership between North Carolina nonprofit, academic, and state organizations, is filling this gap by screening for conditions not included in standard newborn screening.

This commentary discusses the importance of conducting newborn screening pilot studies in North Carolina and the lessons learned from performing three pilots for severe combined immunodeficiency (SCID), mucopolysaccharidosis type I (MPS I), and X-linked adrenoleukodystrophy (X-ALD).

This commentary traces the expansion of newborn screening for inherited metabolic disorders during the past 55 years, from the first simple test for phenylketonuria to the current panel of over 35 conditions. Emphasis is placed on the role played by technology and the contributions made by researchers in North Carolina.

Newborn screening is a critical, preventive health program for early identification of disorders in newborns. Early detection, diagnosis, and treatment of certain genetic or metabolic disorders can significantly reduce death, disease, and associated disabilities. North Carolina has been instrumental in the development of innovative technologies used in newborn screening programs.

Policy decisions about mandated newborn screening should be based on scientific evidence and incorporate expert opinion. At the national level, a systematic evidence review evaluates the benefit of screening for disorders that may be added to the Recommended Uniform Screening Panel, and ultimately considered by individual newborn screening programs. Recent changes in state laws, including in North Carolina, are intended to streamline the decision-making process for newborn screening policy changes.

Newborn screening identifies infants at increased risk for 50 metabolic conditions that are treatable with early detection. Follow-up links the laboratory result with physician action. Timeliness is essential to ensure affected babies receive treatment and enjoy a healthy and productive life. The follow-up process comprises many steps, several disciplines, and various challenges.

Newborn screening is a system that provides early identification and treatment of infants with disorders prior to permanent disability or death. A successful newborn screening program requires skilled effort, understanding, and collaboration by many individuals, from those collecting the blood spots to the child's primary care provider and family.

Newborn screening in North Carolina has been highly successful, identifying newborns with health conditions for which time-sensitive treatments must be provided to reduce morbidity and mortality. This issue of the North Carolina Medical Journal describes the history of newborn screening in the state, the nature of the system that must be in place for newborn screening to work as planned, and the leadership exemplified by North Carolina, both historically and now. Here we highlight some of the major challenges that newborn screening will almost surely face in the coming years...

BACKGROUND In response to the National Lung Screening Trial, numerous professional organizations published guidelines recommending annual lung cancer screening with low-dose computed tomography (LDCT) for high-risk patients. Prior studies found that physician attitudes and knowledge about lung cancer screening directly impacts the number of screening exams ordered. METHODS In 2015, we surveyed 34 pulmonologists and 186 primary care providers (PCPs) to evaluate opinions and practices of lung cancer screening in a large academic medical center...

BACKGROUND Older adults who are discharged following emergency department evaluation are at increased risk for functional decline and health care utilization, and are likely to benefit from close follow-up and additional care services. Understanding factors associated with a return emergency department visit within 30 days among older fee-for-service Medicare beneficiaries discharged to the community may assist in identifying patients at greatest need for interventions. METHOD Predictors from Medicare data and public sources were evaluated in a retrospective data analysis of North and South Carolina residents (2011-2012) aged ≥ 65 years using Cox regression proportion hazards ratios (HR) and 95% confidence intervals (CI) for time-to-30-day return events...

BACKGROUND Adoption of HIV pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) remains limited among populations at greatest risk for HIV acquisition. This study aims to assess awareness of PrEP among individuals in Durham, North Carolina, which has one of the highest rates of HIV diagnoses in the state. METHOD In 2015-2016, we administered a survey including questions to assess PrEP awareness to individuals at multiple venues throughout Durham, North Carolina. RESULTS A total of 139 respondents were surveyed. The majority were male (66%) and black/African American (75%); 21% were Hispanic/Latino...
