  • Objective: Elevations in cell free fetal DNA has previously been determined in pregnancies affected by preeclampsia. A recent report has indicated that cell free fetal DNA concentrations are elevated early in pregnancy before disease onset. As we have recently performed a prospective study to examine fetal cell traffic in pregnancies at risk for developing preeclampsia, we now quantify cell free fetal DNA concentrations in these samples. Methods: Blood samples were collected in the second… CONTINUE READING
