Patients in the highest risk group (greater than 1:30 risk in this study) undergo CVS, those in the lowest risk group (less than 1:1,500 risk) receive no further testing, and those in the borderline risk group (between 1:30 and 1:1,500 risk) undergo quad screening (serum alpha feto-protein, hCG, unconjugated estriol, and inhibin A) in the second trimester and receive a final risk assessment based on all the measures, with a risk cutoff for further testing of 1:270, Dr.
(13) observed in a study of 51 volunteers that when NCEP risk classifications were used, a single measurement was reliable for assigning a subject to the desirable category if the TC value was <4.78 mmol/L (<185 mg/dL), to the borderline risk category if the value was 5.56-5.81 mmol/L (215-225 mg/dL), and to the high-risk category if the value was >6.59 mmol/L (>255 mg/dL).
