Additional Information

Accurate diagnosis and classification of molar pregnancy is important for determining risk of subsequent gestational trophoblastic neoplasia and subsequent patient follow-up. Diagnosis is traditionally performed by histopathological examination of products of conception (POC), and is challenging in early molar pregnancies even with ancillary techniques like p57kip2 immunohistochemistry.Here, we offer a polymerase chain reaction (PCR)-based short tandem repeat (STR) DNA genotyping assay for genetic diagnosis of partial and complete moles.

Expected Test Result: Complete mole; Partial mole; Non-molar pregnancy

The molecular test result must always be correlated with clinical and histopathological findings by an appropriately trained, qualified and experienced pathologist.
Quality Assurance: Internal Quality Assurance (KKH DPLM)
