Low Papp-A: Individual test results must be interpreted by the ordering physician who has all the information and can apply it to the clinical scenario. Low 1st TM PAPP-A levels can be associated with fetal growth restriction later in pregnancies. Typically serial fetal growth sonograms are done periodically throughout the pregnancy to monitor for this.
