    • Description:
      Mailed questionnaires were used to examine the success of PKU (phenylketonuria) screening programs that were operated by departments of health and to examine differences between these programs. Of 55 departments, 44 were returned and 42 departments reported they had a PKU detection program. Thirty-eight respondents considered the PKU detection program to be effective, and 31 respondents indicated that the entire program cost $60,000 or less per year. The answers and comments on the questionnaires showed a generally positive view of the effectiveness about the value of the treatment program in general were also positive. However, a few departments indicated that more clinical evidence and experience were needed to fully evaluate the overall merits of PKU detection and screening programs.
