Episode Thirteen | Survivable triplicates
Chromosomal abnormalities are often incompatible with life. However, there are a few exceptions to this rule and history has shown us that certain paired chromosomes can include a third. These conditions are known today as Down syndrome (Trisomy 21), Edwards’ syndrome (Trisomy 18) and Patau syndrome (Trisomy 13). These syndromes are routinely screen for in pregnancy with NIPT (Non-Invasive Prenatal Testing).
