UAE NEWS: Dubai A new study detects 7,000 rare diseases in children

The partnership between the Dubai-based companies and the Irish firm began with screening studies at Dubai Hospital and Latifa Hospital for 20 pregnant women whose cases were described as high-risk pregnancies.

Blood samples were taken from pregnant women in their first trimester to detect any abnormalities in the embryonic chromosomes. The results of the laboratory tests were obtained within five days, six times faster than traditional tests that took between 28 and 30 days.

This includes the use of complete genetic sequences as well as more accurate drug testing to have a deeper and more accurate understanding of rare diseases in newborns.

The Mohammed Bin Rashid Innovation Fund, DHA, and many research, scientific and medical centers in the UAE and around the world … take about 5 years and go to 8 clinics to diagnose any rare disease in children, ”he said. .
