Welcome to the Third Issue of the PKU Academy Newsletter


In this edition of the PKU Academy Newsletter, we report on the highlights of the 4th European Phenylketonuria Group Symposium & 2nd Dietitians’ Workshop. These meetings attracted over 200 delegates from 30 countries to Rome, Italy, between the 22nd and 24th of March 2012.

We also feature two more of the popular ‘PKU Perspectives’ interview features which give a personal view from the people behind the presentations and papers.

Mrs Nicole Pallone, vice president of Canadian PKU and Allied Disorders, Ottawa (Canada) tells us about how she felt when asked to consider putting her daughter, aged 18 months in a clinical study.

Prof François Feillet of the Centre de Réferénce des Maladies Héréditaires du Métabolisme, Vandoeuvre les Nancy (France), shares his concerns about the need to understand the lifetime effect of a PKU diet.
