This research opportunity first started as a two year long grant given to the researchers in 2012. Shortly after publishing these discoveries earlier this month, a related paper, head researchers D. Randall Armant and Sascha Drewlo released a seperate paper describing a correlation between the presence of specific proteins in the fetus, obtained by TRIC, and pregnancy complications such as an undernourished fetus, and high blood pressure and kidney disorders in the mother.
Overall, this new fetal genetic testing method can prove to be immensely helpful in identifying the sources of pregnancy complications as well as learning how to manage troublesome pregnancies. I believe this is a much needed discovery in the development of the medical sciences, and that there is so much more that can be done with this new finding, in both testing method and complication correlations.
