“High incidence of genetic defects such as Down’s syndrome in newborns in the Middle Eastern countries translates to a total market worth US$ 1.09 Billion in 2013”, says RNCOS.


Noida, UP -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/28/2014 -- Factors such as high prevalence of advanced maternal age and consanguinity or inter family marriages have resulted in increased incidence of genetic defects within newborns in the Middle Eastern countries.
