Superimposed histologic and genetic mapping of chromosome 9 in progression of human urinary bladder neoplasia: implications for a genetic model of multistep urothelial carcinogenesis and early detection of urinary bladder cancer. (1/1486)

The evolution of alterations on chromosome 9, including the putative tumor suppressor genes mapped to the 9p21-22 region (the MTS genes), was studied in relation to the progression of human urinary bladder neoplasia by using whole organ superimposed histologic and genetic mapping in cystectomy specimens and was verified in urinary bladder tumors of various pathogenetic subsets with longterm follow-up. The applicability of chromosome 9 allelic losses as non-invasive markers of urothelial neoplasia was tested on voided urine and/or bladder washings of patients with urinary bladder cancer. Although sequential multiple hits in the MTS locus were documented in the development of intraurothelial precursor lesions, the MTS genes do not seem to represent a major target for p21-23 deletions in bladder cancer. Two additional tumor suppressor genes involved in bladder neoplasia located distally and proximally to the MTS locus within p22-23 and p11-13 regions respectively were identified. Several distinct putative tumor suppressor gene loci within the q12-13, q21-22, and q34 regions were identified on the q arm. In particular, the pericentromeric q12-13 area may contain the critical tumor suppressor gene or genes for the development of early urothelial neoplasia. Allelic losses of chromosome 9 were associated with expansion of the abnormal urothelial clone which frequently involved large areas of urinary bladder mucosa. These losses could be found in a high proportion of urothelial tumors and in voided urine or bladder washing samples of nearly all patients with urinary bladder carcinoma.  (+info)

Partial monosomy and partial trisomy 18 in two offspring of carrier of pericentric inversion of chromosome 18. (2/1486)

A pericentric inversion of chromosome 18 is described in the mother of a patient with clinical diagnosis of 18q--syndrome. The propositus' chromosome complement includes the recombinant 18 with deficiency of the distal one-third of the long arm and duplication of the terminal segment of the short arm. The propositus' sister carrier the recombinant 18 with a duplication of the distal one-third of the long arm and a deficiency of the terminal segment of the short arm. The relative length of the inverted segment represents about 60% of the total chromosome 18 length. The probability of recombinant formation following the occurrence of a chiasma within the inverted segment is predicted to be high.  (+info)

Origin of DNA damage in ejaculated human spermatozoa. (3/1486)

The molecular basis of many forms of male infertility is poorly defined. One area of research that has been studied intensely is the integrity of the DNA in the nucleus of mature ejaculated spermatozoa. It has been shown that, in men with abnormal sperm parameters, the DNA is more likely to possess strand breaks. However, how and why this DNA damage originates in certain males and how it may influence the genetic project of a mature spermatozoon is unknown. Two theories have been proposed to describe the origin of this DNA damage in mature spermatozoa. The first arises from studies performed in animal models and is linked to the unique manner in which mammalian sperm chromatin is packaged, while the second attributes the nuclear DNA damage in mature spermatozoa to apoptosis. One of the factors implicated in sperm apoptosis is the cell surface protein, Fas. In this review, we discuss the possible origins of DNA damage in ejaculated human spermatozoa, how these spermatozoa arrive in the ejaculate of some men, and what consequences they may have if they succeed in their genetic project.  (+info)

Isolation and characterization of a new human breast cancer cell line, KPL-4, expressing the Erb B family receptors and interleukin-6. (4/1486)

A new human breast cancer cell line, KPL-4, was recently isolated from the malignant pleural effusion of a breast cancer patient with an inflammatory skin metastasis. This cell line can be cultured under serum-free conditions and is tumorigenic in female athymic nude mice. Flow cytometric analysis revealed the expression of Erb B-1, -2 and -3. Dot blot hybridization showed a 15-fold amplification of the erb B-2. Reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction analysis showed a detectable level of mRNA expression of all the Erb B family receptors. In addition, all the receptors were autophosphorylated under a serum-supplemented condition. Unexpectedly, transplanted KPL-4 tumours induced cachexia of recipient mice. A high concentration of interleukin-6 (IL-6) was detected in both the culture medium and the serum of mice. The weight of tumours significantly correlated with the serum IL-6 level. The antiproliferative effect of a humanized anti-Erb B-2 monoclonal antibody, rhuMAbHER2, was investigated. This antibody significantly inhibited the growth of KPL-4 cells in vitro but modestly in vivo. Loss of mouse body weight was partly reversed by rhuMAbHER2. These findings suggest that KPL-4 cells may be useful in the development of new strategies against breast cancer overexpressing the Erb B family receptors and against IL-6-induced cachexia.  (+info)

Subfertile men with constitutive chromosome abnormalities do not necessarily refrain from intracytoplasmic sperm injection treatment: a follow-up study on 75 Dutch patients. (5/1486)

A follow-up study was performed to investigate the impact of the detection of a chromosome abnormality in infertile men who are candidates for intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) treatment. In this collaborative study between clinical genetics centres and fertility clinics in the Netherlands, 75 ICSI couples of which the male partners had a chromosome abnormality were included. All couples were extensively counselled on the risk of having a chromosomally unbalanced child. Forty-two out of 75 couples chose to proceed with the ICSI treatment. So far, treatment has resulted in a pregnancy in 11 cases. Four of them opted to have invasive prenatal diagnosis. Despite the genetic risks related to a chromosome abnormality in infertile men, a small majority (56%) of the couples did not refrain from the ICSI treatment.  (+info)

Renal function studies in an infant with 4p (-) syndrome. (6/1486)

An infant with the syndrome of deletion of the short arm of chromosome 4 is described. In addition, this child had renal insufficiency, which is found rarely in association with the 4p(--) syndrome. Previous reports of this syndrome have described only isolated gross structural abnormalites of the urinary tract. In the case discussed here, we present clinical and functional data which indicate that this patient had bilateral renal dysplasia.  (+info)

Genomic instability and recurrent breakpoints are main cytogenetic findings in Hodgkin's disease. (7/1486)

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Successful cytogenetic studies in Hodgkin's disease (HD) are rare, and, except for hyperdiploidy, no chromosome changes typical for this disorder have been described. The purpose of this study was to collect cytogenetic information from a new series of lymphoid neoplasms diagnosed either as classical HD or as Hodgkin's-like anaplastic large cell lymphoma (HD-like ALCL), according to the REAL Classification. DESIGN AND METHODS: We studied 27 cases of HD and 10 cases of HD-like ALCL. Cytogenetic investigations were performed on lymph nodes (35 cases), bone marrow or pleural effusion. A large screening of slides was performed to detect abnormal metaphases despite the low mitotic index of Reed-Sternberg cells. In addition to ours, available published data were analyzed in detail to identify recurring cytogenetic events. RESULTS: Metaphases which could be analyzed were obtained in 86.5% of cases, with 59.4% showing abnormal clones. We found a peculiar kind of cytogenetic instability in which, despite variations in the type of structural rearrangements, chromosome breakpoints were non-randomly distributed. Moreover, from our data plus those collected from literature on HD (total 177 cases), the number of breakpoints was higher in patients in a more advanced clinical stage. INTERPRETATION AND CONCLUSIONS: Cytogenetic studies in HD are highly informative regarding clonality, provided large numbers of metaphases are examined. Based on karyotype, genetic changes in HD and HD-like ALCL are similar. Results are consistent with a high degree of chromosomal instability and predominance of hyperdiploid complex karyotypes. Chromosome breakpoints are non-randomly distributed and more numerous in advanced clinical stages.  (+info)

The 'Mickey Mouse' sign and the diagnosis of anencephaly in early pregnancy. (8/1486)

OBJECTIVES: To assess the sonographic screening for anencephaly in the first trimester in a low-risk obstetric population. METHODS: Since 1994, 5388 women attended our clinic for a first-trimester scan (11-14 weeks of gestation) and screening for structural and chromosomal abnormalities. The patients underwent transabdominal scanning, and transvaginal scanning if necessary. RESULTS: The ultrasonographic appearances of anencephaly in the first trimester are different from the familiar second-trimester signs. The cerebral hemispheres are present and exposed to the surrounding amniotic fluid. The ultrasound appearances in the coronal section of the head are best described as 'Mickey Mouse face'. There were six cases of anencephaly (incidence 1.1:1000). All cases were diagnosed in the first trimester and five demonstrated this sign. There were no false-positive diagnoses. The crown-rump length was significantly reduced in all affected fetuses. CONCLUSION: First-trimester ultrasonographic diagnosis of anencephaly is accurate, but sonographers should be familiar with the ultrasound appearances that are different from those in the second trimester.  (+info)

OBJECTIVE: This study aimed at determining the relationship between fetal chromosomal disorders (CDs), including trisomy 21 (T21), and on first-and second-trimester maternal blood plasma, to identify the time-course metabolic adaptations to the conditions and the possible new plasma biomarkers. Furthermore, a definition of a joint circulatory (plasma) and excretory (urine) metabolic description of second-trimester CDs was sought. STUDY DESIGN: Plasma was obtained for 119 pregnant women: 74 controls and 45 CD cases, including 22 T21 cases. Plasma and lipid extracts (for T21 only) were analyzed by nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy, and data were handled by variable selection and multivariate analysis. Correlation analysis was used on a concatenated plasma/urine matrix descriptive of second-trimester CD, based on previously obtained urine data. RESULTS: CD cases were accompanied by enhanced lipid beta-oxidation (increased ketone bodies) and underutilization of glucose, pyruvate, and citrate. Lower

What are chromosomal disorders with immune deficiency? These disorders occur when there are missing, extra, or irregular parts of a persons chromosomal DNA. When associated with immune deficiency, chromosomal disorders may be linked to Down syndrome, CHARGE syndrome, DiGeorge Syndrome, and Cornelia de Lange syndrome, abnormalities of chromosomes 8 or 18.
Structural chromosome abnormalities occur when there is a change in the structure or parts of a chromosome. The total number of chromosomes is typically 46 total per cell. Structural chromosome abnormalities occur when part of a chromosome is missing, a part of a chromosome is extra, or a part has switched places with another part. Ultimately, this leads to having too much or too little genetic material. This is a cause of some birth defects.. Each chromosome has many segments. These are usually divided into a "short arm" and a "long arm" of the chromosome. The short arm, which is the upper half of the chromosome, is known as the "p arm." The long arm, which is the lower half of the chromosome, is the "q arm." The centromere is the center part of a chromosome that appears "pinched" between the p and q arms.. ...

Humans typically have 22 pairs of autosomal chromosomes in their cells, and a pair of sex chromosomes. About 2.7 million individuals have an extra, 47th autosomal chromosome called a small supernumerary marker chromosome (sSMC). These small supernumerary marker chromosomes can originate from any of the 24 different human chromosomes. About 70% of the cases with sSMC are de novo (new mutations), 30% are inherited within a family. About 30% of the carriers of a sSMC are clinically abnormal. The main problem in connection with a sSMC appears when the diagnosis of the presence of a sSMC is made prenatally. Until recently there was no possibility to make clear predictions about the outcome of the pregnancy. However, research is being carried out into the link between the presence of a sSMC in individuals and any consequent symptoms. Liehr et al. Small supernumerary marker chromosomes (sSMC) in humans. Cytogenet Genome Research, 2004; 107: 55-67 Liehr et al. Small supernumerary marker ...

The high accuracy of the PrenaTest® has been proven in clinical studies. Test accuracies of more than 99% were achieved, depending on the chromosomal disorder tested. This number means that out of 100 pregnant women whose unborn child is affected by a chromosomal disorder, 99 will be determined correctly. In addition, the probability that an abnormal (that is, positive) test result is not correct is very low. This is indicated by the so-called false-positive rate of 0.1%. This value implies that in a group of 1000 unaffected pregnant women, one pregnant woman will receive an abnormal (that is, positive) test result, although her unborn child is in fact not affected by a chromosome disorder. It is important for you to know that 100% test accuracy should not be expected when non-invasive prenatal tests are used. In rare cases, there may be no or an unclear test result. However, this does not reveal anything about the health of your child. You may then repeat the PrenaTest® at no additional cost. ...

When most people think of thirty-six hours, they think of a day and a half, but to Cadie , it was a lifetime. Cadie was born with a chromosomal disorder called Trisomy Thirteen. She never opened her eyes, she had the faintest cry, and she was the most loved baby born onFebruary 20, 2007. I found out I was expecting on the morning ofJuly 13th, 2006. Ill never forget the phone call I made to my mother. It started with the usual, "Hello and how are things?" But it soon progressed to, "Ive got some news!" and, "Someone in the family is having a baby!" You see, I never have been all that great at keeping a secret! This time though, I told her we were about to be one more, but wouldnt let slip just who was expecting. She pestered me to death, asking if it was this person or that. Finally, she struck gold! She said, "Oh my goodness, its you!" She spent five minutes quizzing me about the pregnancy so far. Amazingly, she had to get off the phone right away! She called my Aunt Rachel and filled her ...

The report that has inspired this communication addresses basic side of chromosome mosaicism research. However, Molecular Cytogenetics has published a series of original researches, which have paid attention to practical side of chromosomal mosaicism [31-36]. These have demonstrated that chromosomal mosaicism is an appreciable phenomenon frequently encountered in small supernumerary marker chromosomes (sSMC) research [31-33, 35]. Furthermore, it provided evidences that mosaic structural chromosome rearrangements are likely to occur more frequently, than previously recognized [4, 5, 34, 36]. In the light of studying sSMC, it should be additionally mentioned that chromosomal mosaicism could be cryptic [37, 38] and dynamic [39]. The former is referred to as occurrence of more complex mosaics than revealed after karyotyping [37]. The latter is the occurrence of new genetic imbalances from an already abnormal cell or mosaicism resulting from behavioral peculiarities of a rearranged chromosome [39]. ...

Karyotyping is a boon in medical science. It helps in determining any defects and disorders and thus prevents chances of miscarriage. Karyotyping is the study of chromosomes so genetic disorders can be determined through this technique.
Mosaic structural chromosomal abnormalities observed along the trophoblast-mesenchyme-fetal axis, although rare, pose a difficult problem for their prognostic interpretation in prenatal diagnosis. Additional issues are raised by the presence of mosaic imbalances of the same chromosome showing different sizes in the different tissues, that is, deletions and duplications in the cytotrophoblast and mesenchyme of chorionic villi (CV). Some of these cytogenetic rearrangements originate from the post-zygotic breakage of a dicentric chromosome or of the product of its first anaphasic breakage. Selection of the most viable cell line may result in confined placental mosaicism of the most severe imbalance, favoring the presence of the cell lines with the mildest duplications or deletions in the fetal tissues. We document three cases of ambiguous results in CV analysis due to the presence of different cell lines involving structural rearrangements of the same chromosome which were represented differently ...

PGD has become a relatively recent indication for IVF. PGD allows diagnosis at three levels: sex chromosome abnormalities/aneuploidy, structural chromosomal abnormalities, and single-gene diagnosis. The first reported cases of PGD were undertaken for sex determination of embryos to prevent transmission of X-linked genetic disorders. These initial cases were reported in 1989. Subsequently, PGD was used to prevent single-gene disorders such as cystic fibrosis. The two most common single-gene disorders diagnosed by PGD are cystic fibrosis and sickle cell disease.97 Recently, the indications for PGD have been expanded to include the diagnosis of embryo aneuploidy in women of advanced maternal age, previous IVF failures, and history of previously affected embryos or offspring. Diagnosis of structural chromosomal abnormalities in couples with balanced translocations is also possible with PGD, particularly in the treatment of recurrent miscarriage. Recently, whole-genome amplification with comparative ...
Introduction: One of the important causes of male infertility is aberration at the chromosomes. Aim: The main purpose of this study was to determine the frequency and types of chromosomal aberration in infertile/sterile men whose samples were analyzed in the Center for Cytogenetics of Faculty of Medicine University of Sarajevo in the last four years. Methods: A total of 353 infertile/sterile men, between the ages of 22-55 years, referred for cytogenetic analysis to the Center for Genetics of Faculty of Medicine during the period 2013-2016. Karyotyping was performed on peripheral blood lymphocytes by using the Giemsa trypsin banding (GTG) technique. Results: The structural and numerical chromosomal aberration in infertility/ sterility of men found with the incidence of 6% (20/353). Out of the 20 patients with abnormal cytogenetic diagnosis, structural chromosome abnormalities were observed in 17 (85%) patients and 3 (15%) with numerical aberrations. The type of aberrations mostly found were ...
Noninvasive Method Detects Risk of Down Syndrome. Using a noninvasive test on maternal blood that deploys a novel biochemical assay and a new algorithm for analysis, scientists can detect, with a high degree of accuracy, the risk that a fetus has the chromosomal abnormalities that cause Down syndrome and a genetic disorder known as Edwards syndrome The new approach is more scalable than other recently developed genetic screening tests and has the potential to reduce unnecessary amniocentesis or CVS. Two studies evaluating this approach are available online in advance of publication in the April issue of the American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology.. Diagnosis of fetal chromosomal abnormalities, or aneuploidies, relies on invasive testing by chorionic villous sampling or amniocentesis in pregnancies identified as high-risk. Although accurate, the tests are expensive and carry a risk of miscarriage. A technique known as massively parallel shotgun sequencing (MPSS) that analyzes cell-free DNA ...

The cell-free DNA prenatal screening test (also called "cfDNA test") screens for certain conditions caused by an abnormal number of chromosomes. It does not test for all types of chromosomal disorders. Screening tests are used to estimate whether your baby is at higher risk or lower risk of having a certain condition. Diagnostic tests can give a definite answer about whether the baby has a certain condition. These tests include amniocentesis or chorionic villus sampling (CVS). = maternal ... ...
Genomic technologies are now being applied to reproductive genetic screening. Circulating cell-free DNA testing in pregnancy for fetal chromosomal abnormalities is becoming more widely used as a screening test, and expanded carrier screening for autosomal and X-linked recessive conditions for more than a hundred conditions is available to couples for testing before and during pregnancy. These are most typically available as a commercial test. The purpose of reproductive genetic screening is to facilitate autonomous reproductive choices. Previous studies would suggest that many women do not make informed decisions about prenatal genetic screening, and the introduction of genomic technologies has generally added to the ethical debate. Appropriate pre-test genetic counselling is recommended, and healthcare providers should include information that is balanced, accurate and up-to-date, comprising written and/or e-learning tools, as well as providing psychosocial support so that couples consider the pros and
The genetic analysis of malformations enables us to distinguish four groups of different anomalies: 1. Chromosomal disorders (gene and chromosome mutations). 2. Single (monogenic) hereditary anomalies and malformations (gene mutations: point-mutations). 3. Malformations with polygenic multifactorial basis (combination of genetic and exogenous factors). 4. Exogenous non-hereditary malformations. We were able to classify malformations in one of the four groups using the three most important methods of human genetic investigations: (a) chromosomal analysis, (b) family investigations, (c) twin method. These methods can complement each other, but each has its own individual place. This review quotes examples of the four different etiological groups in otology, especially those affecting parts of the ear as well as those affecting whole ear.
Chromosome abnormalities have been known for over 50 years, though the methods of analysis have become increasing more sophisticated and precise. Surprisingly, the questions that parents and families raise in genetic counseling have changed little over that period.
Chromosome abnormalities can be classified as either structural or numerical. Numerical abnormalities include duplications or deletion of a pair of chromosomes, such as Down Syndrome. Structural abnormalities include missing, extra or switched parts of a chromosome. Discover the latest research on chromosomal abnormalities here. ...

This table contains published instances of large chromosomal abnormalities (mostly deletions) that are associated with a Rett-syndrome-like phenotype. The rationale is that new candidate genes for Rett syndrome are likely to be found in the regions affected. The inclusion of a gene in this table DOES NOT imply a role in disease (Rett syndrome or any other). As its role is to highlight novel areas of interest, abnormalities at known loci (i.e. Xq28 for MECP2 and Xp22 for CDKL5) have not been included in this table. ...

Diagnostic testing. Diagnostic testing is used to identify or confirm the diagnosis of a disease or condition in a person or a family. Diagnostic testing gives a "yes" or "no" answer in most cases. It is sometimes helpful in determining the course of a disease and the choice of treatment. Examples of diagnostic testing include chromosome studies, direct DNA studies, and biochemical genetic testing.. Predictive genetic testing. Predictive genetic testing determines the chances that a healthy individual with or without a family history of a certain disease might develop that disease. There is predictive testing available for some adult-onset conditions (those diseases which manifest themselves in adulthood) such as some types of cancer, cardiovascular disease, and some single gene disorders.. Presymptomatic genetic testing. Presymptomatic genetic testing is used to determine whether persons who have a family history of a disease, but no current symptoms, have the gene alterations associated with ...
Other great news is that everything with the baby is normal thus far. I had a procedure done in late January to test the baby for any chromosome abnormalities. None were found whatsoever and there are 46 chromosomes like there are supposed to be. The baby was also tested for tuberous sclerosis (the neurological disorder that Micah has) and we just found out at the end of last week that he does NOT have that either! I honestly wasnt worried much about it as I knew the chance was small (one percent-the same as anyone else). Of course at all this news, I breathed a sigh of relief and praised God ...

Definition of robertsonian translocation in the Legal Dictionary - by Free online English dictionary and encyclopedia. What is robertsonian translocation? Meaning of robertsonian translocation as a legal term. What does robertsonian translocation mean in law?
Prenatal screening is often misconstrued by patients as screening for trisomy 21 alone; however, other chromosomal anomalies are often detected. This study aimed to systematically review the literature and use diagnostic meta-analysis to derive pooled detection and false positive rates for aneuploidies other than trisomy 21 with different prenatal screening tests. Non-invasive prenatal testing had the highest detection (DR) and lowest false positive (FPR) rates for trisomy 13 (DR: 90.3%; FPR: 0.2%), trisomy 18 (DR: 98.1%; FPR: 0.2%), and 45,X (DR: 92.2%; FPR: 0.1%); however, most estimates came from high-risk samples. The first trimester combined test also had high DRs for all conditions studied (trisomy 13 DR: 83.1%; FPR: 4.4%; trisomy 18 DR: 91.9%; FPR: 3.5%; 45,X DR: 70.1%; FPR: 5.4%; triploidy DR: 100%; FPR: 6.3%). Second trimester triple screening had the lowest DRs and highest FPRs for all conditions (trisomy 13 DR: 43.9%; FPR: 8.1%; trisomy 18 DR: 70.5%; FPR: 3.3%; 45,X DR: 77.2%; FPR: 9.3%).

In individuals with Chromosome 15, Distal Trisomy 15q, an extremely rare chromosomal disorder, the end (distal) portion of the long arm (q) of chromosome 15 (15q) is duplicated (trisomic). Symptoms and physical characteristics associated with the disorder may vary in range and severity, depending upon the exact size and location of the duplicated portion of chromosome 15q.. In some cases, Chromosome 15, Distal Trisomy 15q may be characterized by abnormally slow growth before and/or after birth (prenatal and/or postnatal growth retardation) . In addition, many affected infants experience swallowing and feeding difficulties that may be due to the presence of certain malformations of the head and facial (craniofacial) area. Such feeding and swallowing difficulties may result in or contribute to an affected infants failure to grow or gain weight at the expected rate (failure to thrive). However, in certain rare cases (i.e., trisomy 15q25-qter), affected individuals may exhibit abnormally tall ...
Chromosome studies. Chromosomes are the threadlike structures of DNA in every cell in our bodies that contain our genes. Cytogenetics is a word used to describe the study of chromosomes. The chromosomes need to be stained in order to see them with a microscope. When stained, the chromosomes look like strings with light and dark bands. A picture (an actual photograph from one cell) of all 46 chromosomes, in their pairs, is called a karyotype. A normal female karyotype is written 46, XX, and a normal male karyotype is written 46, XY. The standard analysis of the chromosomal material evaluates both the number and structure of the chromosomes, with an accuracy of over 99.9 percent. Chromosome analyses are usually performed using a blood sample, prenatal specimen, skin biopsy, or other tissue sample. Chromosomes are analyzed by specially trained healthcare personnel that have advanced degrees in cytogenetic technology and genetics. Chromosome studies may be performed when a child is born with ...
Little is known about the role of chromosomal abnormalities in the widely used models of rat mammary carcinogenesis. In this study, we cytogenetically analyzed nitrosomethylurea-induced rat mammary adenocarcinomas at different time points of development. As tools to study more advanced stages of malignant progression, we also analyzed the cytogenetic progression of tumors transplanted into younger syngeneic hosts, and of tumors that did not regress or that developed after host ovariectomy. Our results indicate that rat mammary adenocarcinomas appear to start development as diploid lesions with cytogenetically "normal" karyotypes. However, upon progression, tumors showed coexistence of normal diploid clones with abnormal clones bearing specific abnormalities affecting mainly chromosomes 1 and 15. Almost every ovary-independent tumor presented stem lines with specific nonrandom chromosomal abnormalities. Numerical chromosomal abnormalities such as specific trisomies started to develop mainly after ...
Objective: To analyze trends in screening and invasive prenatal diagnosis of chromosome abnormalities (CA) over a 13-year period and correlate them to changes in the national prenatal screening policy. Methods: We retrospectively reviewed Down syndrome (DS) screening tests and fetal karyotypes obtained by prenatal invasive testing (IT) in our fetal medicine unit between January 1999 and December 2011. Results: A total of 24,226 prenatal screening tests for DS and 11,045 invasive procedures have been analyzed. Over a 13-year period, utilization of non-invasive screening methods has significantly increased from 57% to 89%. The percentage of invasive procedures has declined from 49% to 12%, although the percentage of IT performed for maternal anxiety has increased from 22% to 55%. The percentage of detected CA increased from 2.5% to 5.9%. Overall, 31 invasive procedures are needed to diagnose 1 abnormal case, being 23 procedures in medical indications and 241 procedures in non-medical indications.
Down Syndrome. Down syndrome, formerly called Downs syndrome, is a chromosomal disorder that causes a distinct set of physical and mental characteristics in affected people. Physical characteristics may include slightly slanted eyelids, a flattened nasal bridge, short stature, and overall slower maturation than their peers. There is a wide variation in the mental ability of people with Down syndrome, but most are mildly to moderately retarded.. People with Down syndrome have an extra chromosome 21. This is believed to develop during germ cell formation, when the two number 21 chromosomes do not separate properly. At conception the affected ovum or sperm unites with a normal germ cell, and the resulting embryo has 47 chromosomes instead of the typical 46. This condition, known as trisomy 21, occurs in about 95% of persons with Down syndrome (see genetic diseases). There are two other variants of Down syndrome. Translocation occurs in 3-4% of persons with Down syndrome, when a partial number 21 ...
Aim: Prediction of chromosomal disorders causing to severe pathological conditions can provide big benefits in early diagnosis and treatment. Adding a predeterminable feature to the cancer risk is very important in enlightening of the mechanisms inducing the disease, in elongation of survival times of the patients due to early diagnosis of the disease and in reducing mortality and morbidity by developing effective and economical treatment protocols. Studies using chromosomal aberrations as biological markers indicate that increasing aberration levels are important indicators in predisposition to the cancer. Aim of this study was to determine it this is feasible. One or several types of cancers were used in these studies reported in the literature. The increases in frequency of chromosome aberrations in Italy and Norwegian societies have been associated to some types of cancers ...

Trisomy 18 and 13 What are trisomies? The term trisomy is used to describe the presence of three chromosomes, rather than the usual pair of chromosomes. For example, if a baby is born with three #21 chromosomes, rather than the usual pair, the baby would be said to have trisomy 21. Trisomy 21 is also known as Down syndrome. Other examples of trisomy include trisomy 18 and trisomy 13. Again, trisomy 18 or trisomy 13 simply means there are three copies of the #18 chromosome (or of the #13 chromosome) pr...

The multiple marker test is a blood test offered to all pregnant women. Doctors use it to screen for chromosomal disorders and neural tube defects.. Test results can be combined with first trimester screening tests to give more accurate results (this is called an integrated screening test).. It is important to remember that this is a screening test, not a diagnostic test. If the test shows there might be a problem, another test must be done to confirm or rule out a diagnosis. ...
Trisomy Chromosomal Defects - Normally a human has 23 pairs of chromosomes, one set of 23 from the mother and one set of 23 from the father. The pairs are numbered from 1 to 23. Trisomy occurs when there are three chromosomes instead of just a pair of one of those numbered sets. The most common are Trisomy 13, Trisomy 18 and Trisomy 21 (Down Syndrome) meaning that the 13th, 18th or 21st pair has an extra chromosome. Trisomies 13 and 18 are generally considered to be inconsistent with life, meaning that these children do not usually survive. I mention these only because the perinatologist who gave us our diagnosis started out by telling us that there was an excellent chance that this is what we were dealing with. I have no idea what he based that assumption on, but other parents have shared similar stories with us, that their initial diagnosis came with the news that it was likely that their child had one of these conditions and might very well not live. Based on this we, and other parents, ...

Non-Invasive Prenatal Testing to detect chromosome aneuploidies in 57,204 pregnancies[25] "Non-invasive prenatal testing (NIPT) has been widely used to detect common fetal chromosome aneuploidies, such as trisomy 13, 18, and 21 (T13, T18, and T21), and has expanded to sex chromosome aneuploidies (SCAs) during recent years, but few studies have reported NIPT detection of rare fetal chromosome aneuploidies (RCAs). In this study, we evaluated the clinical practical performance of NIPT to analyze all 24 chromosome aneuploidies among 57,204 pregnancies in the Suzhou area of China. METHODS: This was a retrospective analysis of prospectively collected NIPT data from two next-generation sequencing (NGS) platforms (Illumina and Proton) obtained from The Affiliated Suzhou Hospital of Nanjing Medical University. NIPT results were validated by karyotyping or clinical follow-up. RESULTS: NIPT using the Illumina platform identified 586 positive cases; fetal karyotyping and follow-up results validated 178 T21 ...
Ring chromosome 14 syndrome is caused by a chromosomal abnormality known as a ring chromosome 14, sometimes written as r(14). A ring chromosome is a circular structure that occurs when a chromosome breaks in two places and its broken ends fuse together. People with ring chromosome 14 syndrome have one copy of this abnormal chromosome in some or all of their cells.. Researchers believe that several critical genes near the end of the long (q) arm of chromosome 14 are lost when the ring chromosome forms. The loss of these genes is likely responsible for several of the major features of ring chromosome 14 syndrome, including intellectual disability and delayed development. Researchers are still working to determine which missing genes contribute to the signs and symptoms of this disorder.. Epilepsy is a common feature of ring chromosome syndromes, including ring chromosome 14. There may be something about the ring structure itself that causes epilepsy. Seizures may occur because certain genes on the ...
