HADASSAH IS WORLD'S
ONLY CENTER FOR
PRENATAL TEST OF
MUCOLIPIDOSIS IV

Jerusalem — Hadassah is
known as the only center in the
world which does a prenatal test
of a genetic disease known as
Mucolipidosis Type IV (ML IV).
It was first described by Hadas-
sah doctors in 1974 and is found
among Ashkenazi Jews — from
Northern and Western Europe —
in higher frequency than among
any other group — from the Near
East and the Mediterranean.
Babies who suffer from ML IV are
born with moderate to severe
psychomotor retardations which
affect their ability to walk and
talk. They also develop opacity of
the cornea which reduces their
vision sometimes as early as
two-and-a-half months of age. The
oldest known survivor is in the
mid-twenties.
Dr. Gideon Bach, head of the
Human Genetics Department of
the Hadassah-Hebrew University
Medical Center in Jerusalem, is
responsible for performing the
complicated biochemical test on
the amniotic cells of the fetus.
Professor Bach comments:
"Doctors and parents from all
parts of the world telephone me
about this prenatal test. Usually
the contact is made because ML
IV has occurred previously in the
family, and the parents want to
know whether it is safe to con-
tinue with the pregancy.
"We arrange for the patients to
send me by express mail or by
other suitable means, cultured
amniotic fluid cells taken from
the mother by means or am-
niocentesis.

Hadassah is saddened by
the loss of

LAURA KIRSCH

who was a dedicated and de-
voted member of Hadassah.
She was past president of the
Ein Karem Group and served
on the Chapter Board in
membership and fundraising.
Laura and her late husband
Lou, an Associate Hadassah
member, gave unselfishly of
their time to their many
Hadassah friends and Hadas-
sah Projects.
Laura will remain in our
memory always.

The test is - divided into two
parts: One is an electron micro-
scope study of cell storage mate-
rials, which is carried out by Dr.
A. Ornoy, of the Hebrew
University-Hadassah School of
Medicine. The other is a compli-
cated biochemical test for enzyme
deficiency for which I am respon-
sible."
Of the more than 20 families
that have been tested for ML IV,
five were advised to interrupt
pregnancy because the fetuses
were affected. One family has
been tested in five different pre-
gnancies: twice the pregnancies
were interrupted and three times
they were allowed to continue,
and normal healthy children were
born. In no case has the test pro-
ved incorrect.
Professor Bach concludes: "I
remain in contact with all the
families who have been tested.
The test is very complicated but it
is worthwhile."
