Jody Bell and Logan Hauenstein talk to media members about their seven-week-old daughter, Calla, who was the first child in Utah to be diagnosed with SCID using the Utah Health Department's routine newborn screening test. Babies with SCID are not able to fight infections and often die. Calla was diagnosed very early and will soon have a bone marrow transplant that will increase her survival rate to over 95 percent. Currently, 23 states have adopted the T-cell receptor excision circle (TREC) assay as part of their routine newborn screening programs. Utah began screening for SCID on July 1, 2013 and has screened approximately 61,000 newborns for SCID to date. The prevalence of SCID was thought to be 1:100,000; however, through newborn screening, more children are being diagnosed and the prevalence appears to be closer to 1:50,000. Bell and Hauenstein were at the Department of Health CSCHN Building in Salt Lake City, Thursday, October 23, 2014, for a press conference. New test is saving Utah babies’ lives by earlier detection
    A disorder that makes it hard for newborns to fight infections is two times more prevalent among Utah infants than previously thought. Utah health off …
