What is the ESTRIOL UNCONJUGATED SERUM (UE3) Test?

Unconjugated estriol (uE3) is a type of oestrogen (hormone) produced by the metabolism of the foetus (unborn infant). Birth abnormalities and chromosomal variants in newborns are diagnosed using estriol levels. Estriol is discharged into the mother's bloodstream from the placenta (a protective covering for the foetus) and quantified as unconjugated uE3. Estriol Unconjugated (E3) test is mainly used to diagnose Down syndrome when the levels are lower than the standard threshold, 14.60ng/ml in pregnant females.
