Michigan Newborn Screening Timeline


*Disorders labeled with one asterisk were added to the NBS panel in 2005 using the tandem mass spectrometry (MS/MS) platform.

**Over 1800 mutations have been identified in the gene associated with Cystic Fibrosis, the Cystic Fibrosis Transmembrane Regulator (CFTR) gene. Most newborn screening programs only screen for the most common disease causing CFTR gene mutations.

Provided is a list of the CFTR mutations included in Michigan's Cystic Fibrosis Newborn Screening Panel
