The massive (more than 16 thousand patients) epidemiology of phenylketonuria study included data from the DNA-Diagnostics Laboratory collected over 20 years. The article presents a detailed statistical analysis, data on frequency of disease, prevalence of the PAH gene variants, discusses mechanisms of distribution and accumulation of mutations in different populations of 51 countries in 17 regions of the world.
