Study Description

During pregnancy, cell-free DNA (cfDNA) in maternal blood encompasses a small percentage of cell-free fetal DNA (cffDNA), an easilyaccessible source for determination of fetal disease status in risk families through non-invasive procedures. In case of monogenic heritabledisease, background maternal cfDNA prohibits direct observation of the maternally inherited allele. Non-invasive prenatal diagnostics(NIPD) of monogenic diseases therefore relies on parental haplotyping and statistical assessment of inherited alleles from cffDNA,techniques currently unavailable for routine clinical practice. Here, we present monogenic NIPD (MG-NIPD), which requires a bloodsample from both parents, for targeted locus amplification (TLA)-based phasing of heterozygous variants selectively at a gene of interest.Capture probes-based targeted sequencing of cfDNA from the pregnant mother and a tailored statistical analysis enables predicting fetalgene inheritance. MG-NIPD was validated for 18 pregnancies, focusing on CFTR, CYP21A2, and HBB. In all cases we could predict theinherited alleles with >98% ... (Show More)
