About Shivdikar Human Reproduction & Fertility Centre
Pre-implantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD) is a highly sophisticated scientific technique to test embryos for specific genetic or chromosomal abnormalities. PGD is useful for patients who have history of genetic abnormality in their family, advanced maternal age, previous child with genetic abnormality or recurrent miscarriage or repeated IVF failure.
In PGD testing, one or two cells are removed from a day-3 embryo and tested for a specified condition, such as cystic fibrosis, Down’s syndrome, Huntington’s disease, Thalassemia, Duchene muscular dystrophy, Fragile-X, BRCA1/BRCA2. Only those embryos diagnosed as being unaffected or free of a specific disorder will be transferred in the IVF cycle, maximising the chance of a healthy baby. FISH (Fluorescent In-Situ Hybridisation) is the technique used for PGD.
