Guthrie noted that the National Association for Retarded Children through its state chapters lobbied vigorously for laws for PKU screening despite much opposition by organized medical groups; 37 states had such laws by The introduction of newborn screening for phenylketonuria: Newborn screening with the heel stick began in and was reported by Guthrie and Susi He found, however, that whole blood worked equally well and facilitated newborn screening.


Untreated PKU can lead to intellectual disabilityseizuresbehavioral problems, and mental disorders. Mutations in both copies of the gene for PAH means that the enzyme is inactive or is less efficient, and the concentration of phenylalanine in the body can build up to toxic levels.
