Start Date: 1 Jan 2014

Project summary

This is a review for the uk national screening committee bringing together the research evidence about whether to offer pregnant women noninvasive prenatal tests (NIPT) for Down's syndrome, Edwards syndrome and Patau syndrome. Currently women are offered the combined test in the first 12 weeks of pregnancy. We will examine the evidence to advise whether NIPT testing should be offered in addition to the combined test.
