The use of tears for heterozygote detection and genetic counseling

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The impressive results with tear enzyme determinations in Tay Sachs' and Fabry's disease suggest that all inborn errors of metabolism with known enzyme deficiencies should be studied similarly. It may eventually be possible for such tests to provide the type of information necessary for the prevention of the many inborn errors of metabolism that affect man.
