What is Alpha Feto protein (AFP)?

Alpha Feto protein (AFP) is produced in the liver of a developing baby and protects it against the maternal immune system. Abnormal levels of embryonic AFP in the mother’s serum can be indicative of birth defects like spina bifida or genetic abnormalities like Down’s syndrome in the baby. Thyrocare offers this test at a discounted rate, along with the home collection facility.
