米国のミネソタ州では検査済みろ紙血を71日たったら破棄

Alert:



The Newborn Screening Program of the Minnesota Department of Health
would like to alert you to a significant change in storage and use of residual
dried blood spots and test results. The Minnesota Supreme Court recently
ruled on newborn screening storage and use of residual blood spots and
test result practices in Minnesota as a result of the Bearder, et al., v. State
 of Minnesota lawsuit. This decision requires several changes to
 the Newborn Screening Program.

Beginning on January 30, 2012, the Newborn Screening Program began
routinely destroying the residual blood spots from specimens received
on or after November 16, 2011. The Program will retain the specimens
 for 71 days after the receipt of the specimen. Within one week after 71
 days, the specimens will be destroyed. Through analysis of the program,
MDH determined that 71 days is the maximum amount of time needed
to obtain a confirmed positive diagnosis for heritable or congenital
disorders. Data from the testing and results for the infant will be retained
 for 24 months per Federal CLIA guidelines and then will be destroyed.
Please note that data and specimens from babies born between July 1997
 and November 15, 2011 are currently under a litigation hold and cannot
be destroyed at this time unless requested by the parents.

For Health Care Providers:

Please continue to distribute the ‘One simple test can make a difference
 for your child’ brochure dated 12/2011. While this brochure does not
describe the details as listed above, we intend to provide an updated
version with all of the programmatic changes in the spring after further
 legal and legislative clarification. In the meantime, we encourage
 providers and expectant or new parents to contact us with any
questions or concerns.
