The advent of chromosomal microarray analysis.

The paper provides a detailed technical description of their methods also, emphasizing how to prevent misdiagnosing healthful embryos. Munne says their methods resulted a misdiagnosis price of only 1 1.8 percent with CGH, when compared with a rate of 7 percent with FISH , a mature technique. Image via Wikimedia Commons.. The advent of chromosomal microarray analysis, also called comparative genome hybridization means that it is easier than ever before to spot genetic disorders in young children. Virginia Hughes reported last month in Nature Medicine how insurance firms are reluctant to cover these analyses for young children due to their higher cost.The baseline characteristics of patients enrolled in the BRIGHT-SC study stayed consistent with our objectives to enroll sufferers with a biopsy diagnosis of IgA nephropathy, high degrees of proteinuria, and kidney function indicative of progressive kidney disease. Interim analyses of CHABLIS-SC1 and BRIGHT-SC had been planned for the 3rd quarter of 2014 to verify the scientific assumptions of the styles of these two studies. However, because of our on-heading partnership negotiations for Asian rights for blisibimod for both lupus and IgA nephropathy, we elected to delay these analyses. We anticipate these discussions will become completed through the fourth one fourth of 2014.
