Diagnóstico genético preimplantacional (DGP)

Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD)

Now it is possible to know if an embryo can suffer from genetic or chromosomal disorders

Thanks to the Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD) we can test the genetic or chromosomal constitution of an embryo before we transfer it to the uterys. The aim of this test is to show if the embryo has any disorder.

In order to perform this test, we take a cell sample three days after its extraction. With this sample we can undergo many different PGD variants, as for example:
  • Chromosomal analysis, in which the new Arrat CGH is important in order to test any genetic alterations, as numerical or structural chromosomal alterations.
  • Molecular analysis for gen test in view of possible genetic disorders, as cystic fibrosis or hemophilia.

When is it advisable to perform a preimplantation genetic diagnosis?
  • In women over 37 years old.
  • When there is a clinic history of two or more miscarriages.
  • In karyotypically altered couples.
  • In men with chromosomal abnormalities in the sperm, detected through FISH test.
  • In people with genetic disorders (no chromosomal ones) that can be passed on the descendants.

The preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) is a partial test of a sole cell, so we can only provide information about those diseases we study and not about all the embryo.
