Pre-implantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) is a highly specialised test performed to detect genetic and chromosomal or genetic abnormalities in the embryo prior to its transfer into the mother’s womb. Indications for PGD include:
PGD testing is performed on a day 5/6 old embryo. A few cells are extracted from the embryo and tested for different conditions. Embryos which clear the test and are unaffected by any kind of genetic conditions or abnormalities are used. Some of the conditions that can be diagnosed using PGD are cystic fibrosis, Down’s syndrome and Thalassemia.
