Preimplantation genetic test for DM1

If a person affected by Steinert's disease or myotonic dystrophy type 1 seeks to have offspring, but wishes to avoid inheriting the genetic alteration of the disease, he/she can choose to resort to assisted reproduction techniques.

Performing an in vitro fertilization (IVF) cycle with preimplantation genetic testing (PGT) will allow the embryos to be genetically analyzed for the DM1 alteration and only transfer the unaffected embryos to the patient's uterus to achieve gestation.
