Shortening the path to rare disease diagnosis by using newborn genetic screening and digital technologies

Project description

Fast-tracking rare disease diagnosis and treatment

There are more than 7 000 known rare diseases, conditions that affect no more than 1 person in 2 000. Collectively, these conditions that impact up to 36 million people across the EU and will affect 1 in 17 people during their lifetime, are often severe, multisystemic chronic diseases that put patients at risk of permanent organ damage and degeneration. Patients typically face an arduous journey to a proper diagnosis. In this context, the EU-funded SCREEN4CARE project aims to shorten the time to diagnosis and treatment of patients with rare diseases. Bringing together 35 partners in an international public-private consortium, the project will use a multipronged strategy that includes genetic newborn screening and AI-based algorithms to identify patients at early disease onset.
