Effect of gestational age on screening for neural-tube defects by maternal plasma-A.F.P. measurement.

Abstract:

Maternal plasma or serum alpha-feto-protein (A.F.P.) concentrations were measured once between 8 and 22 weeks of gestation in each of sixty-two pregnancies which resulted in an infant with a neural-tube defect. Between 13 and 22 weeks of pregnancy twenty-two of the forty-one cases tested (54%) had A.F.P. values greater than three times the median value for unaffected pregnancies (which is equivalent to the 97th percentile of normal), and many of these values were very high indeed. However, be...
