Question:I have gone through double marker test and result is free beta hcg is 50.81IU/I and PAPP-A is 1.947 IU/I. And also the given sample is found screen negative. Please let me help to know the result.
Answer: Beta HCG and papp-a are the biochemical markers to recognise the down syndrome in foetus.
screen negative means that the risk of foetus to have chromosomal abnormality like down syndrome or trisomy 18 and trisomy 21is less. That good sign.
