Genome-wide fetal aneuploidy detection by maternal plasma DNA sequencing
Obstetrics and Gynecology, 05/03/2012Bianchi DW et al.
This prospective study demonstrates the efficacy of massively parallel sequencing of maternal plasma DNA to detect fetal aneuploidy for multiple chromosomes across the genome. The high sensitivity and specificity for the detection of trisomies 21, 18, 13, and monosomy X suggest that massively parallel sequencing can be incorporated into existing aneuploidy screening algorithms to reduce unnecessary invasive procedures.
