About IDF SCID Newborn Screening
Severe Combined Immune Deficiency (SCID) is a primary immunodeficiency disease. Babies with SCID appear healthy at birth, but without early treatment, most often by bone marrow transplant from a healthy donor, these infants cannot survive. It is imperative therefore that newborn screening programs are established in all 50 states.
