International  Screening

Prenatal Screening

I know, it sounds crazy even just imagining it, but think about what would be possible if we managed to implement capillary prenatal screening!

Why should we care?

So as to prevent late diagnosis!

Why is it better to avoid a late diagnosis?

Because children are born with important malformations such as heart defects, anal atresia, esophageal cancer, biliary or renal dysplasia, which if neglected could lead to other medical problems or even death.

This way, our children can be operated on at an early stage and given therapies to improve their situation, saving parents the emotional roller coaster of having to look for medical answers to questions that appear unanswerable.

Imagine if all the most important structures that deal with prenatal genetic testing were aware of the existence of Cat Eye Syndrome International.

Parents, before beginning to panic, could meet with other parents of the same country and thus get a true picture of the syndrome which is unaltered by the imagination induced by the little information found on the internet.

Imagine if the families in difficulty, eager nonetheless to have a child of their own, could find financial and moral support in the association and its members, and discover what further prenatal tests need to be carried out and what precautions should be taken before and immediately after birth.

This is the Cat Eye Syndrome International that we are dreaming of.

Newborn Screening

Newborn screening basically has the same purposes as prenatal screening with the added difficulty of having to bring to light and identify misdiagnosed cases.

Aside from providing timely treatment and therapies, newborn screening will finally enable educators, doctors and your average person to know how common this syndrome actually is.

The media will finally start talking about it.

The awareness battle will be won.

This will stimulate funding for research in order to improve the understanding of this complex syndrome, thus ensuring a better future for our children and our grandchildren.

Postnatal Screening

How many cases of CES are there in the world?

How many nations are affected by it?

How many asymptomatic cases are there and how many are severely symptomatic?

How many cases show the typical marker of Cat Eye Syndrome and how many are affected without this marker?

How many people and families are in need of help and assistance?

Unfortunately at the moment nobody knows.

This is the primary objective of Cat Eye Syndrome International; to carry out such screening and discover all the cases of Cat Eye Syndrome in the world so as to be able to bring its support and assistance to all the families who need it.
