In Vitro Fertilization (IVF)

Pre-Implantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD)

For couples undergoing in vitro fertilization (IVF), pre-implantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) is a procedure undertaken to screen the embryos for a host of genetic diseases and disorders to ensure the delivery of a healthy baby. Genetic diagnosis helps physicians to identify some genetic defects within the embryo, prior to implantation, before the pregnancy is established.

Genetic diagnosis is normally recommended for couples where one or both of the parents are a known carrier of Thalassemia. The procedure involves the removal of one or two cells from an embryo which are then screened for genetic abnormalities. Genetic diagnosis identifies the embryos with chromosome abnormalities, thereby avoiding their transfer during an in vitro fertilization procedure.

Your healthy baby, born by IVF & PGD method, will give life to your other child diagnosed with Thalassemia disease!

When the bone marrow, which is received from your healthy baby who is born with IVF & PGD method, is transplanted into your child diagnosed with Thalassemia disease, your sick child will completely recover from Thalassemia.

Thanks to this treatment, Thalassemia will be annihilated and this method will not cause any damage to your healthy baby who is born with IVF-PGD method.
