Screening for fetal trisomies 21, 18 and 13 by non-invasive prenatal testing (NIPT). EUnetHTA report
Since several years, numerous new non-invasive prenatal tests (NIPTs) have been available to identify common chromosomal anomalies. Most NIPTs are available for trisomies 21, 18 and 13 and sex chromosome aneuploidies, but many laboratories have expanded their range of analysis to include other trisomies and common microdeletions. The main advantage of NIPT compared to the conventional screening approach is the ease of implementation and non-invasiveness of the assay, as well as the potential reduction in false-positive [FP] results. An introduction of non-invasive genetic testing has ethical, social and organizational implications that need to be considered.
