The importance of embryo nutrition in achieving a successful cycle of in vitro fertilisation (IVF): metabolomics

One of the main limitations of assisted reproduction techniques are its embryo implantation failure rates. The implantation rate is the embryo’s ability to implant in the mother’s uterus. In other words, not all embryos are able to give rise to a pregnancy. Some have a greater chance of doing so than others. If it were possible to select embryos with the greatest ability to implant, it would be possible to improve assisted reproduction technique success rates. […]

Pre-implantation genetic diagnosis (PGD): comprehensive chromosome screening

Pre-implantacional genetic diagnosis (PGD) is a technique used to detect genetic or chromosomal abnormalities and it is performed on the embryo prior to transfer to the mother’s uterus.
Its use is recommended in couples where one of the partners is a carrier of a genetic or chromosomal abnormality that either means they are unable to get pregnant or increases the risk of pregnancy loss or abnormalities in their children. In some cases, it is the only means of having biologically healthy children and, in others, it is an alternative to prenatal diagnosis. […]

The advantages and disadvantages of pre-implantation genetic diagnosis (PGD)

Pre-implantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) consists of studying chromosomal abnormalities and genetic abnormalities in the embryo prior to transfer to the mother. Its purpose is to ensure that children are healthy and put an end to the transmission of a specific condition.
There are two types of PGD: the PGD aimed at selecting embryos that are free of a genetic disorder affecting a single gene (PGD) and the PGD that analyses genetic diseases affecting one or more chromosomes (PGS/PGT-A/CCS or PGS). Their names are sometimes a cause for confusion. The post entitled Are PGD, PGS and CCS all one and the same? clarifies the differences between them. […]

Fertility research: one of a kind treatment for one of a kind patients

Research in the field of assisted reproduction provides us with more and more answers to situations which previously had none. It gives us solutions, options and new ways of overcoming the many difficulties which arise in reproduction.  What’s more, progress in science also helps diagnosis and treatment to be increasingly specific, personalised and individual. In fact, we might even say that the aim is to reach a point where one of a kind treatments are designed for one of a kind patients. […]
