Preimplantation genetic diagnosis: 25 years of changing lives | Illumina Video


Twenty-five years ago, the first unaffected baby was born following in vitro fertilization (IVF) with preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) for an X-linked disorder. Since then, many improvements to the PGD process have been made. Now, couples concerned about the risk for their future children to inherit a genetic disorder can undergo IVF with PGD for any single-gene disorder with minimal preparation and faster results, thus optimizing the likelihood that an unaffected embryo is transferred.
