Pre-implatation Genetic diagnosis and screening

Pre-implatation genetic diagnosis (PGD)

PGD is a procedure that allows the identification of genetic abnormalities in the embryo and it involves the removal and testing of some of the embryo’s cells, while it is being cultured in the laboratory. Some of the abnormalities tested are β-thalassaemia, cystic fibrosis, Down’s syndrome etc. The end result is the transfer of embryos that are tested healthy and clear of such genetic anomalies.

Pre-implantation genetic screening (PGS)

The method can be applied in cases of repeated implantation failure following assisted reproductive treatment, especially in women of advanced reproductive age, couples with normal karyotype and severe male infertility or in cases of multiple missed abortions.
