Spina Bifida Study

The Spina Bifida Genetics Research Project is enrolling mothers who have given birth to a child with SB in a study to determine if genetic variations in folic acid metabolism account for an increased risk of having a child with SB.
From the results of the study, it may be possible to develop a test that can identify at-risk women prior to conception. They could be treated by their physicians the same way as women who have had a child with SB- with high dose folic acid supplementation.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. of course I can add kids from other countries to the chain. I just didn't publically open it up for that because I would have ended up with a zillion. There are 125 kids being adopted from our O but if I didn't know them, I didn't include them but would if they left a message.
