G6PD deficiency

G6PD deficiency is a genetic disorder, resulting in no or low G6PD activity. People with G6PD deficiency should not take primaquine, an antimalarial drug, and other drugs with high oxidative stress because it could cause serious side effects such as acute hemolysis. Now, more countries are implementing G6PD screening as a part of their newborn screening program.
