Amniotic Fluid: Biochemical Assays Relating to Fetal Viability

  • Laszlo Sarkozi


The selection of this body fluid for inclusion in this book is self-explanatory. This chapter attempts to describe reasons for obtaining the amniotic fluid; its composition, which depends on its origin; and the great wealth of information on the well-being of the fetus obtained by performing biochemical assays of amniotic fluid. References on cytologic, histochemi-cal, and biochemical studies of suspended cells obtained from amniotic fluid are listed and intended as background information in the pursuit of further studies. Most of these studies today are performed only by investigators and some research-oriented laboratories. However, they conduct successful screening programs for the most frequent fetal biochemical disorders and the research tools of yesterday are the routine tests of today.
