PRE-IMPLANTATION GENETIC TESTING

line

Pre-Implantation Genetic Testing is a reproductive technology used with In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) for the testing of genetic diseases in the early embryo prior to implantation and pregnancy.

- WHAT IS PGT?

Pre-Implantation Genetic Testing was developed to prevent the transfer of serious genetic disorders and to establish gender. It is a two-stage process consisting of In-Vitro Fertilization (IVF) and genetic screening.

- WHO NEEDS PGT?

PGT can significantly reduce the chances for your baby to be affected by a specific genetic condition or chromosomal abnormality. We will be able to test for many different common genetic diseases in the near future.

- STEP BY STEP PGT

We use the most advanced technology, NGS (Next-Generation Sequencing) to perform the PGT:

  • Ability to detect aneuploidies, mosaicism, and segmental alterations
  • Rapid technology allowing embryos to be transferred in frozen cycles
  • New diagnostic possibilities including the measurement of mitochondrial DNA copy number (Mito-Score)
  • Our technology and experience allow us to analyze 24 chromosomes.

PGT

- INDICATIONS

  • Family Balancing
  • Recurrent Pregnancy Loss
  • Recurrent Implantation Failure
  • Family history of Abnormalities
  • Previous Abnormal Pregnancy
  • Affected Parents


- WHAT ARE THE CHANCES OF SUCCESS?

Chances of conception (getting pregnant) are similar to IVF (30%-40%)

- HOW MANY ATTEMPTS OF PGT CAN BE MADE?

From a medical point of view, there is no limit on the number of attempts but one has to consider emotional and financial stress involved in this treatment.

- WGS (Whole Genome Sequencing and IVF ) 

Whole-genome Sequencing is a diagnostic tool used to identify the mutated gene(s) that cause genetic diseases in a family. The procedure is performed with the help of a blood test. Mostly, after identifying the cause of genetic disease, the couples can opt for the Pre-Implantation Genetic Testing (PGT) for Single Gene Disorders or can take the attempt to increase the chances of a successful IVF pregnancy,  It is in fact, a genetic test that facilitates embryos of the individual to be screened for the genetic disease that affects her family, before going for pregnancy.
