Advancements in Prenatal Screening Trends

Abstract

The report illustrates the advancements in Prenatal Screening with a brief note on emerging developments in non-invasive prenatal screening, emerging developments in non-invasive prenatal testing, and emerging trends in the US non-invasive prenatal screening market. Prenatal diagnosis enables detection of chromosomal abnormalities and genetic mutations in human fetus, or embryo, at very early stage of pregnancy, including chromosome anomalies, neural tube defects, genetic abnormalities, Down's syndrome (trisomy 21 condition), and other conditions. In addition the report also highlights the role of the obstetricians, physicians and genetic counselors in helping the expectant mothers to arrive at an informed decision concerning prenatal screening.
