Amniocentesis permits measurement of AFAFP and acetylcholinesterase.
Concentrations of fetal serum AFP are reported in mg/mL, while levels of amniotic fluid AFP (AFAFP) are reported in [[micro]gram]/mL.
Lower than expected levels of MSAFP are noted in overestimation of gestational age, type 1 diabetics, Down syndrome, trisomy 18 (Edwards' syndrome), hydatidiform moles, and pseudopregnancy.[52] AFAFP is far more sensitive and specific for diagnosing NTDs than is MSAFP.
