Prenatal Screening for Fetal Aneuploidy

Received: 01 August 2017;  Published: 26 September 2017;  doi: 10.21926/obm.genet.1703007


Prenatal genetic aneuploidy screening approaches are designed to identify pregnant patients at increased risk of having a fetus affected. Conventional prenatal screening has consisted in providing women a risk estimate of having a pregnancy affected with trisomy 21 or trisomy 18 based on maternal ag [...]

Avoiding the Technological Imperative: Criteria for Genetic Screening Programs

Received: 30 July 2017;  Published: 21 September 2017;  doi: 10.21926/obm.genet.1703006


Genetic screening is the process of systematically evaluating a defined population for genetic conditions or predispositions, in the hope of providing benefit to those with a positive result. With advances in sequencing technology, genetic screening is moving from phenotype-based to genotype-based t [...]

Carrier Screening for the Haemoglobinopathies: Past, Present and Future

Received: 03 July 2017;  Published: 14 August 2017;  doi: 10.21926/obm.genet.1703005


Carrier screening for the haemoglobinopathies has undergone many technological improvements in haematological and molecular diagnostic techniques since the first prenatal diagnoses by DNA analysis in the 1970s by Southern blot analysis enabled the implementation of effective successful prevention pr [...]

Mechanisms of Origin and Clinical Effects of Multiple Small Supernumerary Marker Chromosomes, Each Derived from a Different Chromosome

Received: 15 November 2016;  Published: 10 February 2017;  doi: 10.21926/obm.genet.1701002


Small supernumerary marker chromosomes (sSMCs) are centric chromosome fragments additionally present in an otherwise normal human chromosome set that cannot be characterized by classical cytogenetic techniques alone. The majority of sSMCs are not yet related to a defined clinical phenotype. We compi [...]
