FeganScott Announces Investigation into Prenatal Testing Options Revealing Flawed Genetic Results

·2 min read

CHICAGO --News Direct-- FeganScott

Today consumer-rights law firm FeganScott announced it has launched a broad-ranging investigation into whether certain national medical laboratories, including Natera (NASDAQ:NTRA), Sequenom (now owned byLabcorp, NYSE: LH), and Quest (NYSE: DGX), provided expectant mothers with lab test results the organizations knew – or should have known – returned unacceptably high percentages of flawed results.

In some instances, the flawed results led expectant mothers to believe the children they were carrying had serious genetic abnormalities, according to media reports.

“Since we’ve begun our investigation into mothers who were offered prenatal testing and received flawed results, it’s evident this issue is widespread,” said Beth Fegan, founder of FeganScott. “We are examining whether the labs acted appropriately in how they disclosed information regarding the accuracy of the testing, and whether those disclosures were done in a way that allowed parents to make informed decisions regarding the test and test results.”

According to media reports, many prenatal tests including Panorama, Prequel, Maternit21 and others are expected to be wrong over half the time and yet they continue to be offered as possible solutions for parents who may be worried about genetic abnormalities.

“There a have been other instances in which labs and laboratory testing organizations have delivered flawed results to parents causing great emotional and financial distress. We need to be sure this isn’t happening again,” Fegan added.

Individuals who are interested in learning more about this investigation are urged to send their contact information to prenataltesting@feganscott.com.
