Pre-Implantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD)

PGD is a test that helps evaluate the health of an embryo during the IVF process.

PGD (Pre-Implantation Genetic Diagnosis

 

An embryo that appears healthy can contain genetic mutations. Pre-Implantation Genetic Diagnosis provides information regarding the genetic health of the embryo. Couples who are carriers of inherited genetic diseases can consider PGD testing to increase the chances of a healthy embryo selection. PGD tests for diseases such as:

  • Sickle Cell Anemia
  • Tay-Sachs Disease
  • Cystic Fibrosis

 

What If I Don’t Know If I Am A Carrier?

 

As part of RAD’s routine initial patient work up, you will be offered testing for certain genetic diseases, in order to develop an appropriate plan of care. If both partners are carriers for specific genetic mutations, PGD offers the most appropriate solutions to identify those embryos that lack the familial genetic disease mutations.
