Tag: Indications for PGD
PGD procedure allows the prevention of severe inherited diseases which are still untreated by means of embryo selection.
Julio Martín, Director in the PGD laboratory of the Valencian Infertility Institute (IVI), provides us with an opportunity to know about the many benefits of performing a PGD in women over age 40.
PGD increases the birth rate in those patients in which the chances for developing some genetic alteration are higher than the average mutation rate among population of childbearing age.
Those couples with greater chances for having embryos with any genetic alteration are indicated to undergo a pre-implantation genetic diagnosis in which each embryo’s cell is evaluated so that only those embryos which are genetically healthy are transferred.
