Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

For over 50 years, scientific and technological advancements have enabled neonatal screening for ever more congenital conditions. The potential to significantly expand the scope of neonatal screening reminds us that it is worth taking the time to review the experience acquired through previous newborn screening programmes.

By reflecting on the long-term experience of screening for conditions such as congenital hypothyroidism, the ISNS 2018 conference emphasized the need to understand the reliability of screening results. Time was devoted to developments regarding two relatively new conditions, severe combined immunodeficiency (SCID) and spinal muscular dystrophy (SMA). Finally, the current neonatal screening situation across Europe was highlighted.

We are pleased to announce that in addition to the conference Poster Prize there is a second, new competition, the ISNS Conference Paper Prize. Publications in this Special Issue are eligible for entry. The winning paper will be selected by a joint committee of members of the IJNS Editorial Board and the organizing committee of the ISNS Bratislava meeting.
