Development of noninvasive fetal DNA diagnosis from nucleated erythrocytes circulating in maternal blood.

Abstract

BACKGROUND A considerable effort is being spent in developing noninvasive prenatal DNA diagnostic procedures. We recently reported that nucleated erythrocytes (NRBCs) can be enriched from maternal blood by a galactose-specific lectin method. In the present study, to prove that fetal NRBCs are definitely present in maternal blood and are a good source for… (More)
