 What is PGD?

Pre-implantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD) is a sophisticated scientific technique which can be used to test embryos for either a specific known genetic condition or chromosome abnormality.

This enables only chromosomally normal embryos or those unaffected by a specific disorder to be selected for transfer during an IVF cycle, maximising the chance of a healthy baby.

Up to 70% of embryos created, either via natural conception or IVF don’t survive the first 3 months of pregnancy and many don’t achieve implantation because of those two reasons.

In our center, chromosomes can be analysed to identify the chromosomal diseases using FISH technique at embryonic stage. Moreover, the study of 24 chromosome can be done by CGH and NGS methods. Again, by using molecular genetic methods; genetic diseases such as Thalassemia, Cystic Fibrosis, SMA etc can be determined. During IVF application, healthy embryos can be identified in addition to determination of HLA and Rh genotypes in embryos.
