Summary of "A proof-of-concept study on the effects of low total cfDNA content and solutions to increase the NIPT trisomy 21 detection rate."

Non-invasive prenatal testing (NIPT) is routinely used in clinical practice for fetal trisomy screening, but low total cfDNA content and low fetal fraction (LFF) are two factors that affect the detection rate. Samples with low total cfDNA or LFF usually end up with "no-call" results, followed by the blood redraw and re-testing, which is inconvenient for pregnant women and clinicians.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

An empirical investigation which pertains to the development of prototypes or models that demonstrate the feasibility of novel concepts, ideas, principles, schema or their practical application.

Sterile solutions, essentially free from foreign particles and suitably compounded and dispensed, for instillation into the eye. It does not include solutions for cleaning eyeglasses or CONTACT LENS SOLUTIONS. (From Dorland, 27th ed)

The delivery of nutrients for assimilation and utilization by a patient whose sole source of nutrients is via solutions administered intravenously, subcutaneously, or by some other non-alimentary route. The basic components of TPN solutions are protein hydrolysates or free amino acid mixtures, monosaccharides, and electrolytes. Components are selected for their ability to reverse catabolism, promote anabolism, and build structural proteins.

An interdisciplinary study dealing with the transmission of messages or signals, or the communication of information. Information theory does not directly deal with meaning or content, but with physical representations that have meaning or content. It overlaps considerably with communication theory and CYBERNETICS.

The at-home administering of nutrients for assimilation and utilization by a patient whose sole source of nutrients is via solutions administered intravenously, subcutaneously or by some other non-alimentary route.
