Fetal Genome Profiling Via Trophoblast Cells

The objective of this study is to utilize trophoblast cells accumulating in the endocervical canal at the beginning of pregnancy for non-invasive prenatal testing. If we are able to validate that trophoblast cells obtained at an early gestational age can be reliably used for prenatal testing, there is great potential to improve early pregnancy management and counseling options for potential parents. The target population will be all women between the age of 18-45 undergoing care at the Center for Reproductive Medicine (CRM) in order to achieve a pregnancy.
