Test Results on Sequenom’s (SQNM) SEQureDX for Down Syndrome Detection Drive Shares 22% Higher

For every 800 babies born, statistics show the odds are that one of them will be affected with Down syndrome. It is a condition in which an extra genetic material, summing up to 47 instead of the normal 46 chromosomes inherited by the baby, causes delays in the way it develops, often leading to mental retardation. Whether caused by the age of mother, genes of parents, or other factors, an early detection of the signs of this condition allows a well planned future for the baby.

Sequenom Inc., a genetics and molecular diagnostic company, provides genetic analysis products that translate genomic science into solutions for biomedical research, molecular medicine, noninvasive prenatal testing, and livestock and agricultural applications.

Sequenom yesterday announced its prenatal test, which screens maternal blood for Down syndrome, was effective in all samples, exceeding analysts' expectations. Its non-invasive SEQureDX screening test was successful in predicting Down syndrome-positive samples in all 200 tested without any false positives. Following the announcement, shares of Sequenom surged 22 percent to $9.33 in yesterday's trading.
