Genetic Disease Diagnosis

They call it super-amniocentesis, and a new diagnostic tool with mechanisms similar to those of the chorionic villus sampling and amniocentesis traditional, which allows you to diagnose over the 80% genetic diseases whose fetus might be affected or carrier.

Another step forward in pre-natal diagnosis. Presented in Rome several days ago by researchers at the Sidip, the super-amniocentesis is new diagnostic method that will help you diagnose 80% of genetic diseases, compared with 7% of those so far found with amniocentesis. With this new test you can study the details of the Dna of the fetus, making targeted searches to identify hundreds of diseases of which the foetus may be affected or carrier. This new technique, therefore, uses the rapid Dna sequencing and succeeded in a few hours, but with great accuracy, providing reliable data on the health of the fetus.

“Where once normal amniocentesis and chorionic villus sampling, techniques were able to analyze only the number of 46 chromosomes – said Claudio Giorlandino, gynecologist, General Secretary of the Italian college of Sidip fetal maternal medicine from Oxfordastronomy – today it is possible to study its intimate structure, as if one were a skyscraper of millions of floors, the current technique gives you the possibility to check every single brick. This makes it possible to exclude, in addition to the most common chromosomal abnormalities, also the most rare and serious genetic disorders, congenital heart disease, brain diseases, in short, to forms of autism, mental retardation syndromic’s and hundreds of other surprises that each day you discover after birth”.

The only sore point is the cost. The Ndgp costa 1,500 euros, and is offered are from private facilities at a cost that is almost double that of CVS.
