Prenatal Test for Fetal Aneuploidy Detection


The purpose of this study is to develop and evaluate a blood test for pregnant women for detection of fetal aneuploidy.

Full Title of Study: “Investigational Study of a Prenatal Diagnostic Test for Fetal Aneuploidy”

Study Type

  • Study Type: Observational
  • Study Design
    • Time Perspective: Prospective
  • Study Primary Completion Date: November 2011

Arms, Groups and Cohorts

  • Positive for fetal aneuploidy
  • Negative for fetal aneuploidy

Clinical Trial Outcome Measures

Primary Measures

  • Comparison of blood test to results from chorionic villus sampling or amniocentesis for fetal aneuploidy detection
    • Time Frame: 24 months
    • Circulating genomic material from maternal blood will be quantified using biochemical techniques to determine the presence of fetal aneuploidy. The results obtained from analysis of circulating genomic material will be compared to the karyotype results from chorionic villus sampling or amniocentesis.
