Fetal Chorioamniotic Membranes Show Molecular Changes in Placenta Previa and Placenta Accreta Spectrum
|Study ID||Alternative Stable ID||Type|
Placenta previa and the placenta accreta spectrum (PAS) are understudied pregnancy disorders with serious consequences for both mother and infant. To better understand the molecular and cellular etiologies of these diseases, we performed 3SEQ of formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded (FFPE) fetal chorioamniotic membrane samples from PAS, previa, and gestationally age-matched spontaneous pre-term birth samples to identify molecule signatures of these diseases. These samples were subsequently validated using a second validation cohort of previa, PAS, and control patients. FFPE archival samples provide opportunities for retrospective molecular investigation of many diseases.
