Regional differences in the frequency of the c.985A>G ACADM mutation: findings from a meta-regression of genotyping and screening studies.
Several countries include medium-chain acyl-CoA dehydrogenase (MCAD) deficiency, a rare autosomal recessive disease, in their newborn screening programmes despite prevalence uncertainty. We estimated the frequency of its most common mutation, c.985A>G, tested for regional differences and compared screening and genotype frequencies. We identified 43 studies reporting the frequency of c.985A>G over 10 million individuals, and pooled frequency data using a novel Bayesian approach. We found...Expand abstract
