Ontario is adding cystic fibrosis to the list of screening tests for new babies under the Newborn Screening Program.

Starting late next year, newborn babies in Ontario will be tested for cystic fibrosis in addition to 27 other diseases.

Health Minister George Smitherman says early detection of the disease in newborns will help ensure they receive proper care as soon as possible.
