PGD

Pre-implantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) involves genetic test on cells of embryos, used for family balancing, selection of the quality best embryo(s) and for pregnancy free of a genetic disease. PGD is an early form of prenatal diagnosis, in which analysis of well-defined genetic defects in embryos is done, which are created in vitro; only those without defects are placed into the uterus (Sermon, 2002). The technique is used mainly in two indicated groups. PGD provides an option for the couples to avoid difficult decision of whether to terminate the affected pregnancy.

Safety with Biopsy and PGD

Through PGD fewer pregnancies with chromosomal disorders are expected as most chromosomal disorders are identified prior to the transfer of the embryos to the uterus. Read More
