Focus Foundation Article Included in the Top 20 Most Downloaded Papers
Our article in Prenatal Diagnosis: The Benefits and Limitations of Cell-Free DNA Screening for 47,XXY (Klinefelter Syndrome) has become one of the journal’s top 20 most downloaded papers in 2018 for Wiley publications!
- The article raised the visibility of non invasive prenatal testing (NIPT) as a prenatal screening test for low risk mothers. NIPT will result in more boys being identified with 47, XXY, instead of the long diagnostic odyssey that more than 75% of families typically experience just to attain a diagnosis.
