Is Prenatal Diagnosis of Alzheimer's Disease Possible?

Answer

There is some prenatal diagnosis of Alzheimer's Disease that is possible. What happens is that DNA is extracted from fetal cells that are taken during the process of amniocestis or during chronic villus sampling or CVS. CVS testing happens between ten to twelve weeks gestation. And the amniocestis testing happens during the fifteen to eighteen weeks of gestation. It is important to have the allele of a family member that is affected by the condition first before the testing is done during pregnancy.
