Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis: Advantages

Preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) is a means of determining if the embryo resulting from an IVF has any genetic defects. This is a newly available technology and can be used to reduce the number of children born with birth defects. Advantages of PGD PGD is an advantageous procedure and can be ... Continue Reading

Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis versus Similar Treatments

Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis, or PGD, is a genetic diagnosis method used in certain In vitro Fertilization (IVF) treatments. It is normally done to diagnose the presence of genetic disorders in the embryo before its implantation. When the couples undergoing IVF have a history of genetic disorde ... Continue Reading

Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis: Aneuploidy Screening

PGD, or preimplantation genetic diagnosis, is recommended to IVF couples who have a personal or family history of genetic disorders. This testing is vital because the parental genetic disorder can be transmitted to the embryo. This essentially means an increased likelihood of the IVF couple having a Continue Reading

Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis: Fluorescence in Situ Hybridization

Preimplantation genetic diagnosis, more commonly known as PGD, is a technique used to detect possible genetic defects in embryos produced in the in vitro fertilization procedure. The FISH, short for Fluorescence in Situ Hybridization, is one of the three PGD techniques available. FISH in PGD Fluores ... Continue Reading

Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis: Chances of Successful Pregnancy and Birth

With the help of preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD), scientists can examine with a greater degree of accuracy, the appearance of an embryo or oocyte to determine whether it is healthy. They can examine whether such oocytes also have normal genetic codes that have no genetic faults. By using PGD ... Continue Reading

Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis: Blastocyst Biopsy

Preimplantation genetic diagnosis is a groundbreaking technique to identify genetic defects in embryos from IVF procedures. The procedure is performed by obtaining a cell from the embryo; this cell is analyzed. The removal of the cell can be performed through one of three techniques: polar body biop ... Continue Reading

Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis: Haplotyping

Preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) is a procedure used in embryos obtained through in vitro fertilization. There are three main techniques of PGD: FISH (fluorescence in situ hybridization), PCR (polymerase chain reaction) and haplotyping. Haplotyping is the latest developed technique and involv ...

Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis: Comparative Genomic Hybridization (CGH)

Preimplantation genetic diagnosis, or PGD, is a technique to detect defects in the early stages of an embryo, before it is transplanted to the mother's womb. PGD may be performed employing several methods, including the FISH analysis, the PCR analysis or the comparative genomic hybridization (CGH). ... Continue Reading

Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis: Cleavage-Stage Embryo Biopsy

Preimplantation genetic diagnosis is a technique used to confirm the presence of genetic defects in embryos that are created through in vitro fertilization prior to their implantation in the mother's womb. This is generally done when one or both parents have a genetic abnormality. The embryo is test ... Continue Reading
