Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis: Limitation of Single Cell Analysis

Embryonic testing for IVF embryos in the form of preimplantation genetic diagnosis, or PGD testing, is recommended when either the mother or father or both of the IVF partners are known to be affected by genetic abnormalities. This includes scenarios wherein the partners seeking IVF treatment are me ... Continue Reading

Preimplantation Genetic Screening: Chromosomal Abnormalities

Preimplantation genetic screening (PGS) is the procedure used during preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD), mostly in combination with in vitro fertilization (IVF) and embryo screening. In vitro fertilization is the process of mixing and fertilizing the female eggs cells and sperm outside of the u ... Continue Reading

Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis: Polymerase Chain Reaction

PGD, or preimplantation genetic diagnosis, is one of the few pre-pregnancy genetic testing methods that can help to decode genetic disorders at the embryonic stage. This essentially means that the IVF couple has a better chance of being implanted with healthier embryos, i.e. embryos free from geneti ... Continue Reading

Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis: Self-Correction

Preimplantation genetic diagnosis is when tests are performed on a pregnant women to determine if the embryo carries a defective gene. The testing is especially valuable when one or both of the parents is carrying a known genetic abnormality.This is different from certain other testing known as prei ... Continue Reading

Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis: Polar Body Biopsy

The use of PGD, or preimplantation genetic diagnosis, during IVF treatment ensures that healthy embryos, free from genetic disorders can be identified. To test the embryos, the IVF technicians need to extract a few cells from the embryo. A common method of doing this is removing a single cell from t ... Continue Reading

Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis: Technical Limitations

PGD, or preimplantation genetic diagnosis, is essentially a form of genetic testing that is recommended as a part of IVF. PGD testing is recommended to IVF couples when there is a likelihood of a genetic disorder being passed on to the embryo. PGD is conducted in the form of extensive embryo testing ...

Preimplantation Genetic Screening: Advanced Maternal Age

Preimplantation genetic screening (PGS) is performed on embryos from in vitro fertilizations, to select only viable embryos that are more likely to be implanted and result in a healthy baby, with no genetic diseases. In couples with advanced maternal age, PGS makes sense, as the mother's age can hav ... Continue Reading

Preimplantation Genetic Screening: Frequency of Down Syndrome Per Maternal Age

Preimplantation genetic screening is a cutting edge diagnosis used on embryos to ensure that they are not carriers of genes that may contain diseases such as the Down syndrome or Huntington's. The PGS is used during the IVF, in couples that are likely to carry genetic diseases or in advanced materna ... Continue Reading
