OBJECTIVE To investigate the clinical efficiency of noninvasive prenatal test (NIPT) identifying fetal chromosomal aneuploidies. MATERIALS AND METHODS In the present study, 917 women with high-risk pregnancies were invited to participate in an NIPT trial based on an Illumina HiSeq massively parallel sequencing platform. Abnormal cases in NIPT were(More)
Preterm birth (PTB) is a live birth delivered before 37 weeks of gestation (GW). About one-third of PTBs result from the preterm premature rupture of membranes (PPROM). Up to the present, the pathogenic mechanisms underlying PPROM are not clearly understood. Here, we investigated the differential expression of long chain non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) in(More)
BACKGROUND Preterm premature rupture of membranes (PPROM) is responsible for one third of all preterm births (PTBs). We have recently demonstrated that long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) are differentially expressed in human placentas derived from PPROM, PTB, premature rupture of the membranes (PROM), and full-term birth (FTB), and determined the major(More)
