Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Screening during pregnancy is unlike screening any other population, because two entities are involved and potentially affected by the disease: the pregnant woman and the fetus. A number of serum screening tests can be performed as part of prenatal care. Some are routinely done on all pregnant women, some are offered to women thought to be at risk for a particular disease, and some are offered according to the woman's age, country of origin or other criterion.
