Canick and Cosmin Deciu Noninvasive prenatal detection of sex chromosomal aneuploidies by sequencing circulating cell-free DNA from maternal plasma Prenatal Diagnosis 33

Article first published online: 17 MAY 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/pd.4127

What's already known about this topic?

  • Circulating cell-free fetal DNA present in maternal plasma enables noninvasive prenatal testing.
  • Using massively parallel sequencing (MPS), accurate detection of trisomies of chromosomes 21, 18, and 18 has been demonstrated and is now offered as a laboratory developed test.
  • Detection of monosomy X through MPS is also possible. Fewer data are available for other sex chromosome aneuploidies (SCAs).

What does this study add?

  • By using a comprehensive bioinformatic model, we demonstrate that accurate detection of the most common SCAs through whole-genome MPS can be achieved.
  • The SCA detection algorithm will complement the already existing methods for detection of autosomal trisomy.
