Purpose of review Preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) allows genetically disadvantaged couples to reproduce, while avoiding the birth of children with targeted genetic disorders. By ensuring unaffected pregnancies, PGD circumvents the possible need and therefore risks of pregnancy termination. This review will describe the current progress of PGD for Mendelian and chromosomal disorders and its impact on reproductive medicine. Recent findings Indications for PGD have expanded beyond those… Expand
Preimplantation genetic diagnosis: technology and clinical applications.
TLDR
Clinical vignettes from The Froedtert Hospital and Medical College of Wisconsin Reproductive Medicine Clinic PGD Program will be presented, including the first single-gene disorder PGD performed in Wisconsin. Expand

TLDR
Preimplantation genetic diagnosis can be beneficial for three major subgroups of patients with recurrent pregnancy loss: couples carrying chromosomal translocations; women more than 35 years of age; women of any age whose previous miscarriages were due to fetal aneuploidy. Expand
Preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) for a treatable disorder: Gaucher disease type 1 as a model.
TLDR
PGD is an effective and accurate method for preventing Gaucher disease type I in carrier couples using a multiplex fluorescent PCR protocol and eight closely spaced, highly polymorphic informative microsatellite markers surrounding the gene. Expand
Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis and Genetic Screening
TLDR
Both PGD and PGS have been shown to be useful in improving reproductive outcomes and will be discussed in this chapter. Expand
Ethical, legal and social implications of prenatal and preimplantation genetic testing for cancer
TLDR
The reproductive decisions/choices of at-risk young couples and the ethical, legal and social concerns of prenatal genetic testing and preimplantation genetic diagnosis for susceptibility to hereditary cancer syndromes are discussed. Expand
Ethical, legal and social implications of prenatal and preimplantation genetic testing for cancer susceptibility.
TLDR
The reproductive decisions/choices of at-risk young couples and the ethical, legal and social concerns of prenatal genetic testing and preimplantation genetic diagnosis for susceptibility to hereditary cancer syndromes are discussed. Expand

This paper was submitted as an Honours Thesis at the ANU College of Law, supervised by Alex Bruce.Embryos can now be genetically analysed, prior to their implantation (through the vitro fertilisationExpand
The interface between assisted reproductive technologies and genetics: technical, social, ethical and legal issues
TLDR
A framework for development of guidelines to be issued jointly by European Society of Human Genetics and European society of Human Reproduction and Embryology for the interface between genetics and ART is outlined. Expand

Human Embryonic Stem Cells as Models for Aneuploid Chromosomal Syndromes
TLDR
The results presented here suggest that aneuploid embryos can serve as an alternative source for either normal euploid or aneuPLoid hESC lines, which represent an invaluable tool to study developmental aspects of chromosomal abnormalities in humans. Expand

Thirteen years' experience of preimplantation diagnosis: report of the Fifth International Symposium on Preimplantation Genetics.
TLDR
A sequential sampling of both oocytes and the resulting embryos may improve accuracy of aneuploidy testing and may also allow the detection and avoidance of transfer of embryos with uniparental disomies. Expand
Preimplantation genetic diagnosis for cancer predisposition.
TLDR
Despite the controversy of PGD use for late onset disorders, the data demonstrate the usefulness of this approach as the only acceptable option for at-risk couples to avoid the birth of children with an inherited predisposition to cancer, and to have a healthy child. Expand
Conception for donation.
TLDR
This combination of IVF and PGD to create a stem cell donor should be treated as research, not only for the advantages of institutional review and collection of data about adverse effects, but so that federal standards for minimizing risks to children can be applied. Expand
Over a decade of experience with preimplantation genetic diagnosis: a multicenter report.
TLDR
Preimplantation genetic diagnosis is evolving to become a clinical option for couples at risk for producing offspring with Mendelian diseases, has a positive numerical impact in standard assisted reproduction practices through aneuploidy testing, and reduces by at least fourfold the spontaneous abortion rate in couples carrying translocations. Expand
Extending preimplantation genetic diagnosis: the ethical debate. Ethical issues in new uses of preimplantation genetic diagnosis.
TLDR
It is concluded that except for sex selection of the first child, most current extensions of PGD are ethically acceptable, and provides a framework for evaluating future extensions for nonmedical purposes that are still speculative. Expand
Preimplantation HLA testing.
TLDR
This is the first known experience of preimplantation HLA typing performed without PGD for a causative gene, providing couples with a realistic option of having HLA-matched offspring to serve as potential donors of stem cells for their affected siblings. Expand
Clinical aspects of preimplantation genetic diagnosis for single gene disorders combined with HLA typing.
TLDR
The data suggest that application of PGD in combination with HLA typing is a promising therapeutic tool for an affected sibling. Expand
Outcome of preimplantation genetic diagnosis of translocations.
TLDR
Pregnancy outcome depended on the number of normal embryos available for transfer, with patients having <50% abnormal embryos achieving the most pregnancies, and robertsonian translocations caused fewer abnormal embryos than reciprocal translocations, they also resulted in higher rates of implantation. Expand
Prognostic role of preimplantation genetic diagnosis for aneuploidy in assisted reproductive technology outcome.
TLDR
The outcome of the first PGD for aneuploidy may have a predictive role for subsequent attempts in couples at risk of generating chromosomally abnormal embryos. Expand
Preimplantation genetic diagnosis for the Kell genotype.
TLDR
PGD in couples with a heterozygous K1/K2 male partner provides an option for avoiding HDN in sensitized mothers and results resulted in the birth of healthy twins confirmed to be free of the K1 allele. Expand
