Detail Description

What is NIPT?

NIPT is a blood test that utilizes cell-free DNA technology (cfDNA) to predict the risk for fetal genetic disorders during pregnancy. In 2011, NIPS was introduced as a screen for T21 (trisomy 21 or Down syndrome). Today, NIPS cover the most common aneuploidies (T21, T13 and T18), as well as sex chromosomes and may also include some microdeletions and single-gene genetic disorders.

Noninvasive prenatal testing (NIPT) for fetal aneuploidies by scanning cell-free fetal DNA in maternal plasma is rapidly becoming a first-tier aneuploidy screening test in clinical practices. With the development of whole-genome sequencing technology, small subchromosomal deletions and duplications that could not be detected by conventional karyotyping are now able to be detected with NIPT technology.

What is a microdeletion?

A microdeletion is an abnormality that occurs when a piece of a chromosome is missing. In fact, it's just what it sounds like: micro (tiny); deletion (taken away). Throughout your life, your cells replicate by dividing and in the process, your body chops up these DNA strands to make them more manageable to use. But once in a while, a tiny bit of a chromosome is removed during this process, resulting in a microdeletion. 

The effect a microdeletion has on your baby's health and development depends on its location and size. Some microdeletions can cause intellectual disability, problems with motor skills or miscarriage, while others do no damage at all.

How common are microdeletions?

Unlike other chromosomal abnormalities, which are more likely to occur in moms with certain risk factors (such as those who are 35 years or older or who have a family history of a genetic disorder), microdeletions seem to occur randomly (which means they don't usually run in families) and equally affect any baby regardless of other risk factors.

In fact, by some estimates, nearly all of us have some microdeletion in our chromosomes. For example, 22q11.2 deletion syndrome is rare and occurs in about one out of 4,000 people. But this condition may be underdiagnosed, which means it could occur more frequently.

Will a NIPT include microdeletions?

One test that is widely ordered after 9 weeks for moms-to-be is the non-invasive prenatal test (NIPT). This is a blood test that provides information about the health of your still-developing baby.

NIPT screens for the most common chromosomal disorders: Trisomy 21 (Down syndrome), Trisomy 18 (Edwards syndrome) and Trisomy 13 (Patau syndrome). An expanded NIPT screens for five chromosome pairs and may detect specific microdeletions.

What is the cost of NIPT Microdeletions?

NIPT Microdeletions cost 26000 Rs at DNA Labs India. NIPT Test for Single pregnancy costs 10000 rs while NIPT Test for Twins costs 20000 Rs

What is the reporting time for NIPT Microdeletions?

NIPT Microdeletions take 8-10 working days

What does it mean if I get a positive result?

If an expanded NIPT detects a microdeletion, remember that this is not a diagnostic test, and can't tell you with 100 per cent accuracy that your baby has a particular condition they only give you a calculation of the odds. If it's high enough, your doctor may recommend consulting with a genetic fetal medicine specialist.

If further testing determines your baby has a microdeletion, knowing in advance can help you take steps to improve her health and quality of life. While there is no cure, a variety of therapies are available. As soon as your baby is born, you can work with medical specialists for a thorough evaluation to treat cardiac, neurological, palate, bone, immune, hearing or vision problems.

For example, babies with 22q deletion syndrome have a harder time maintaining calcium in their bodies so prenatal testing ensures doctors know they need to monitor these levels from birth and supplement as necessary.

Knowing your baby has a microdeletion might seem scary, but many parents find learning about the condition prior to birth empowering, as it allows them time to prepare and assure the best and safest outcomes.
