San Jose, California (PRWEB) January 20, 2014
Follow us on LinkedIn – Prenatal diagnosis, also referred to as prenatal screening, is a procedure for investigating diseases or conditions in an embryo or fetus. In addition to identifying possible birth defects, prenatal screening also enables identification of other fetal conditions, including cleft palate, cystic fibrosis, fragile X syndrome, sickle cell anemia, spina bifida, Tay Sachs disease, and thalassemia, and muscular dystrophy. Few of the factors driving advancements in prenatal screening include the need for non-invasive diagnostic procedures, growing awareness regarding the risks of chromosome abnormalities in a fetus, and active government involvement in funding R&D projects in this space.
