Research

The major research interests of the laboratory are to develop preventive medicine programs through clinical biochemistry research and the related basic and application research. The major target diseases are inherited metabolic disorders. The current research interests:

1. Phenylketonuria (PKU): To establish a biochemical analysis system to differentiate tetrahydrobiopterin (BH4) deficient PKU from phenylalanine hydroxylase deficient PKU for the proper treatment of PKU. To identify the molecular defects of BH4 deficient PKU by molecular genetic approaches and to investigate the relationship between phenotypes and genotypes.

2. Organic aciduria (acidemia): To establish a biochemical analysis system for confirmatory and differential diagnosis of propionic acidemia and methylmalonic acidemia. To identify the molecular defects of these diseases by molecular genetic approaches.

3. Inter-laboratory Quality Assurance for Neonatal G6PD Screening: To develop and etstablish inter-laboratory quality assurance program for newborn screening of glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) deficiency (including screening and confirmation diagnosis tests).

4. Newborn Hearing Screening Program: Developing an integrated newborn hearing screening and follow-up system helping local government to implement hearing screening program for all the newborns in the region.

5. Newborn Critical Congenital Heart Disease (CCHD) Screening Program: Developing an integrated newborn critical congenital heart disease (CCHD) screening system helping local government to implement CCHD screening program for all the newborns in the region.


《研究興趣》

本研究室的研究方向是經由臨床生化的研究,發展預防醫學計畫,和 由其中衍生的相關基礎及應用醫學之研究。研究項目主要為遺傳性代謝異常疾病,其相關的研究結果亦可應用於其它遺傳疾病及先天性疾病的研究與防治。

目前主要的研究興趣如下:

1. 苯酮尿症之 研究: 利用生化學方法,建立四氫生喋呤 (tetrahydrobiopterin;BH4) 缺乏型苯酮尿症的確認診斷系統;同時亦利用分子生物學方法, 探討國人四氫生喋呤缺乏型苯酮尿症的致病機轉。利用 DNA 聚合酵素鏈反應和限制酵素反應,研究中國人苯酮尿症的苯丙胺酸羥化酵素和 BH4 代謝酵素的基因結構及其突變。

2. 有機酸血(尿)症之研究: 用生化學方法建立丙酸血症 (propionic acidemia) 及甲基丙二酸血症 (methylmalonic acidemia) 之確認及鑑別診斷之方法,並進一步利用分子生物學技術,研究該疾病發生的分子機轉。

3. 新生兒 G6PD 缺乏症篩檢院際品管計畫 研發建立 Glucose-6-Phosphate Dehydrogenase (G6PD) 確認檢驗及新生兒 G6PD 篩檢院際品管系統 ,確保 G6PD 轉介醫院及新生兒篩檢中心的檢驗品質,以保障民眾之權益。(成果論文)

4. 新生兒聽力篩檢推廣計畫 : 規劃發展區域性整體新生兒聽力篩檢系統,統合協調各公私立單位,協助地方政府推廣新生兒聽力全面篩檢。(成果論文)

5. 新生兒危急型先天心臟病篩檢計畫 : 規劃發展區域性整體新生兒危急型先天心臟病篩檢系統協助地方政府推廣新生兒危急型先天心臟病篩檢全面篩檢。(成果論文)
