Dr. Trilochan Sahoo from CombiMatrix presents his results from a large-scale cytogenomic analysis of pregnancy loss (an estimated 15 - 20% of clinically recognized pregnancies end in miscarriage and at least 50% of these losses result from a chromosomal abnormality). He will present selected cases and discuss the following:

  • Uncertainty in the clinical community on the best methods for identifying chromosomal abnormalities resulting or contributing to pregnancy loss
  • Their ambitious efforts to catalog genomic changes in over 12,000 POC samples to provide a better understanding of the frequency, variety, diversity of genomic alterations
  • How the data overwhelmingly suggest that molecular cytogenomic tools rather than conventional cytogenetics provides unambiguous answers
