First trimester fetal karyotyping: one thousand diagnoses

Human Genetics
G SimoniS Porta


Cytogenetic investigations for diagnostic purposes were performed on 1000 first trimester samples of chorionic villi (CVS) in two laboratories using similar techniques. Fetal karyotyping was the primary indication for CVS in 912 and maternal age was the major indication in 758 of them. The risk category "previous child/fetus with chromosome abnormality" included 74 diagnoses, while the category "chromosome abnormality in one of the parents" included 38 diagnoses. Sex determination was the primary indication for CVS in 53 pregnancies. The overall incidence of chromosomal abnormalities was 70, of which 47 were balanced and 23 unbalanced. The results are detailed for each of the risk categories and the incidence of abnormal karyotypes is given for each year of maternal age. In the maternal age of 35-37 years the incidence of unbalanced karyotypes was 2.9% and in the years 38 onwards it was 6.6%. The incidence of unbalanced karyotypes was about 4% when the sampling was made in the weeks 9 to 12 but six abnormal karyotypes were found among 39 CVS performed at the eight week of gestation. The 11 trisomies of the type not found at birth were clustered between the 8th and the 10th week of pregnancy. The technical problems encountered i...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.


Blastomycosis fungal infections spread through inhaling Blastomyces dermatitidis spores. Discover the latest research on blastomycosis fungal infections here.

Nuclear Pore Complex in ALS/FTD

Alterations in nucleocytoplasmic transport, controlled by the nuclear pore complex, may be involved in the pathomechanism underlying multiple neurodegenerative diseases including Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and Frontotemporal Dementia. Here is the latest research on the nuclear pore complex in ALS and FTD.

Applications of Molecular Barcoding

The concept of molecular barcoding is that each original DNA or RNA molecule is attached to a unique sequence barcode. Sequence reads having different barcodes represent different original molecules, while sequence reads having the same barcode are results of PCR duplication from one original molecule. Discover the latest research on molecular barcoding here.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.

Evolution of Pluripotency

Pluripotency refers to the ability of a cell to develop into three primary germ cell layers of the embryo. This feed focuses on the mechanisms that underlie the evolution of pluripotency. Here is the latest research.

Position Effect Variegation

Position Effect Variagation occurs when a gene is inactivated due to its positioning near heterochromatic regions within a chromosome. Discover the latest research on Position Effect Variagation here.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.


Microbicides are products that can be applied to vaginal or rectal mucosal surfaces with the goal of preventing, or at least significantly reducing, the transmission of sexually transmitted infections. Here is the latest research on microbicides.
