Bionano Genomics, Inc. (Nasdaq: BNGO) today announced the publication of a study utilizing OGM to detect cryptic balanced chromosomal rearrangements (BCRs) found in subjects who experienced recurrent pregnancy loss (RPL). Compared to traditional cytogenetic methods, OGM successfully identified cryptic reciprocal translocation in all samples, improving the success rate for finding pathogenic variants of cryptic BCRs and streamlining the process of detection.
Researchers analyzed samples from 11 couples who dealt with RPL, had a history of an affected child or fetus with chromosome loss or gain, or had a history of infertility to determine OGM’s utility for detection of cryptic BCRs, which can significantly increase the risk of delivering abnormal offspring with congenital malformations or miscarriage for carrier couples. OGM showed 100% concordance with the results from fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) and sequencing analyses and revealed additional complex rearrangement events such as inverted aberrations, further refining potential genetic interpretation. The study authors highlighted challenges associated with using traditional methods and cited OGM’s rapid and robust detection of cryptic BCRs with a high resolution as evidence of its potential application as a first-line method in routine clinical genetic testing.
