Primary Outcome Measures:
  • detect patients with infantile onset Pompe disease [ Time Frame: 3 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Enrollment: 236536
Study Start Date: September 2005
Study Completion Date: December 2009
Primary Completion Date: December 2009 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Pompe disease newborn screening
newborns will be tested if they were affected by Pompe disease
Other: Pompe disease newborn screening
DBS will be tested for acid alpha-glucosidase (GAA)activity. Newborns with low GAA activity will received a confirmatory blood sampling and clinical evaluation for the presence of cardiomyopathy.

Detailed Description:

DBS from newborn will be tested for acid alpha-glucosidase (GAA) activity. Babies with low GAA activity will be confirmed for Pompe disease.
