Effect of in vitro culture of human embryos on birthweight of newborns.
BACKGROUND In animal models, in vitro culture of preimplantation embryos has been shown to be a risk factor for abnormal fetal outcome, including high and low birthweight. In the human, meanExpand

Optimal preparation of preimplantation embryo interphase nuclei for analysis by fluorescence in-situ hybridization.
A new method was developed to prepare and isolate interphase nuclei from murine preimplantation embryos for analysis by fluorescence in-situ hybridization. Embryos were washed with phosphate-bufferedExpand

Identification of the sex of human preimplantation embryos in two hours using an improved spreading method and fluorescent in-situ hybridization (FISH) using directly labelled probes.
Dual fluorescent in-situ hybridization (FISH) using X and Y chromosome specific probes has been used to identify the sex of human embryos for preimplantation diagnosis of X-linked disease. With aExpand

Anaphase lagging mainly explains chromosomal mosaicism in human preimplantation embryos.
BACKGROUND Cleavage stage embryos as well as postimplantation embryos have been studied extensively over the years. However, our knowledge with respect to the chromosomal constitution of humanExpand

What next for preimplantation genetic screening (PGS)? A position statement from the ESHRE PGD Consortium Steering Committee.
Since 2004, there have been 11 randomized controlled trials (RCTs) mainly for advanced maternal age (AMA), which have shown no benefit of performing preimplantation genetic screening (PGS). Ten ofExpand

Mosaicism of autosomes and sex chromosomes in morphologically normal, monospermic preimplantation human embryos
We have previously detected chromosome abnormalities in human embryos whilst identifying the sex for preimplantation diagnosis of X‐linked disease. In this study we assess the incidence of theseExpand
