Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis in Single Gene Disorders

It is very important to diagnose such disorders in the prenatal period (prenatal diagnosis) and even in the embryo stage (preimplantation diagnosis) because of the high frequency of spousal relationships in our country. It is possible making the preimplantation period diagnoses of all single-gene disorders.

Preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) is a procedure used before implantation to help identify genetic defects within embryos. This helps prevent the transmission of certain genetic diseases or disorders to the child. Embryos used in PGD are usually produced during the in vitro fertilization process (IVF).

Preimplantation genetic diagnosis of single-gene disorders is based on the DNA analysis of a single cell. The preimplantation genetic diagnosis is made on such disorders like Cystic fibrosis, Alpha L-1 antitrypsin deficiency, Retinitis pigmentosa, Haemophilia A1 and B, Talassemiler, Alport, Gaucher's, Tay Sach's and Sickle cell anemia, Long-chain acyl-CoA dehydrogenase deficiency, Multiple epiphyseal dysplasia, Achondroplasia, Neurofibromatosis, Epidermolysis bullosa, Myotonic dystrophy, X-linked hydrocephalus, Cancer predisposition, and Fanconi anemia.

Our clinic can provide a service of "Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis", in which healthy embryos are selected during the in-vitro fertilization practices, for those couples, who have risk in terms of such genetic disorders.

Such diseases include; Familial Mediterranean Anemia (Talassemi major), HLA tissue suitability tests, Sickle Cell Anemia, Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA), Congenital Deafness, etc.

Many of those families, who had a genetically diseased child and a high risk of abnormal pregnancy, and want to have healthy children with the genetic diagnosis sending embryos at our center.

Many couples reached a happy ending with our In Vitro Fertilization and PGD treatments, which were specifically suited to the patient.

NOTE: PGT can be applied to all of those disorders, whose genetic diagnoses were made, at our center.
