Lenetix Launches Screening Study of New Down Syndrome Test
Date:2/5/2009

or Down syndrome because they fear the risks of amniocentesis," said Steve Brown, M.D., Lenetix Medical Director. "Our test offers the promise of a comprehensive assessment of fetal aneuploidy in the first trimester using a maternal blood sample. It's a higher-quality test that will protect the mother and fetus."

"I'm personally honored to be involved in this clinical trial, because I believe it will change Down syndrome testing forever," said Jonathan Herman, M.D., a practicing obstetrician on Long Island. "No longer will I have to use indirect tests, like proteins from the baby and mom, to figure out who is at high risk. In the near future I will be able to test the chromosomes directly, and that's very exciting."

About the Lenetix PloidYX Test

The Lenetix PloidYX Test makes use of methylation differences between the fetal and maternal DNA that is found in maternal blood in order to achieve selective amplification of the fetal component. Following amplification, a microarray analysis makes it possible to determine the relative copy number of all the chromosomes. An increase/decrease in the relative copy number of chromosomes is indicative of trisomy or monosomy respectively.
