Ariosa Diagnostics Completes Clinical Study of Harmony™ Prenatal Test on a General Pregnant Patient Population

Ariosa Diagnostics Completes Clinical Study of Harmony™ Prenatal Test on a General Pregnant Patient Population | non invasive prenatal testing | Scoop.it

SAN JOSE, Calif., July 24, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Ariosa Diagnostics, Inc., a molecular diagnostics company, announced today the completion of the first clinical study to evaluate non-invasive prenatal testing (NIPT) using cell-free DNA (cfDNA) in a general population of pregnant women. The patients of this study were from a single large obstetrical practice over a specified period of time and represent an average-risk population for that center. The study's significance is that it evaluates the Harmony Prenatal Test in a population primarily containing pregnant women at low risk for chromosomal abnormalities. Detailed results from this blinded, independent study are being prepared for submission to a peer-reviewed journal.

Non-Invasive Prenatal Testing (NIPT) at Ariosa Diagnostics | Slone ...

The controversial practice of non-invasive prenatal testing (NIPT) made significant progress Tuesday as Ariosa Diagnostics announced the completion of the first clinical study to evaluate NIPT “using cell-free DNA (cfDNA) in a general population of pregnant women.”[1]

The study evaluated the Harmony(TM) Prenatal Test, which now has four published clinical studies. The first study, published in January 2012, used the “cfDNA approach to accurately detect fetal trisomies.” The following two studies used samples from high-risk populations of pregnant women, and the fourth study samples from an average-risk population.

Prenatal Whole-Gene Sequencing Raises Ethical Questions | Inside Science

Prenatal Whole-Gene Sequencing Raises Ethical Questions | Inside Science | non invasive prenatal testing | Scoop.it

What could be the most controversial medical test yet is looming.
Originally published: Aug 27 2012 - 3:45pm
By: Joel N. Shurkin, ISNS Contributor
(ISNS) -- Someday, a pregnant woman is going to walk into the office of a doctor or genetic counselor, and plop a thick folder on the desk. The contents will be the entire genome of the fetus the woman is carrying -- every gene and chromosome -- and the parent-to-be will ask what it will all mean for the baby she is about to have.

The sequencing will provide information on what the child will be like and in some cases, what will happen during the teenage and adult years. All it would take is a simple blood test.

If parents don’t like the results, options can include abortion or maybe genetic manipulation.

The test, what scientists call prenatal whole genome sequencing, eventually will cost less than $1,000, according to experts. Perhaps millions of people will think it a good investment. A huge industry will likely grow up around it.
