    Scientists have developed a blood test that can identify if a baby has suffered a lack of oxygen to the brain during birth.   The prototype test is based on a study of the blood samples of 45 babies that experienced oxygen deprivation at birth, known as birth asphyxia, which increases the risk of risk of disabilities such as cerebral palsy and epilepsy.    Researchers identified 855 genes in babies that undergo changes and result in impaired neurological function.  These genes, including two in particular that showed 'significant' differences, could identify oxygen-deprived newborns most at risk of developing neurodisabilities.  Researchers say a blood test to identify these cases would allow clinicians to rapidly  treat the baby.  One treatment for babies showing signs of asphyxia...
