Abstract
OBJECTIVE
To evaluate the efficacy of prenatal multiplex PCR with chorionic villi, in the case of family history of DMD due to exon deletion. METHODS: DNA was extracted when cells' size are 1x 106 on T- flask surface area reach to 25 cm2 after 2 weeks from sex confirmation. Average DNA concentration was 50-100 ng and multiplex PCR test was performed from DNA extraction. RESULT: PCR was done for 17 exons devided into 4 groups. Seventeen exons were all amplified with their right size. CONCLUSIONS: This method is DNA analysis for prenatal diagnosis of DMD with chorionic villi in the family of DMD. This is useful when preimplantation genetic diagnosis is not available.
