Prenatal Screening for Imprinting Anomalies Implicated in Beckwith Wiedemann and Silver Russell Syndromes (DASIRUWIBE)
Losses of imprinting are involved in various syndromes. Those occurring in the 11p15 region lead to Beckwith-Wiedemann and Silver-Russell Syndromes. These losses of imprinting follow a mosaic pattern, rendering their detection difficult, especially given the scarcity of available DNA in amniotic fluid. Thus, in spite of growing demand, prenatal diagnosis (PND) for imprinting abnormalities of the 11p15 region is not available.
The recent development of a quantitative PCR method that permits the methylation index (MI) of imprinted regions to be calculated renders PND technically possible. Nevertheless, because of the mosaic nature of these anomalies, it is essential to verify that the methylation pattern of the 11p15 region obtained from the amniotic fluid matches that obtained from the blood.

- Methylation Index (MI) of the 11p15 region using DNA extracted [ Time Frame: 27 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]To evaluate the agreement between the MI of the 11p15 region obtained using DNA extracted from amniocytes and that extracted from cord blood leukocytes, by calculating the intraclass correlation coefficient (ICC).
- MI using the placenta [ Time Frame: 27 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]To calculate the MI using the placentas of the same individuals and to evaluate its agreement with the MIs obtained above.
