The UK's leading charity devoted to reducing the incidence of sudden cardiac death (SCD) in young people is to assess the potential benefits of conducting population-wide genetic screening for the condition, Clinica has learnt. Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY), in partnership with the University of Belfast, is to conduct a study based on the population of Northern Ireland. The results will then be extrapolated to the rest of the UK.
