Authors' recomendations: The isolation of foetal RNA and DNA from maternal blood appears to be feasible for the non-invasive diagnosis of Down's Syndrome. Both tests need to be optimised for their routine use in prenatal testing and large-scale studies should be conducted. Therefore HealthPACT recommended that this technology be monitored for further information in 12-months time.
