Selecting Healthy Embryos

The latest woman to take advantage of a new technique used to select healthy embryos for implantation in the uterus is a 39-year-old Portland, Ore., resident.

She is five months pregnant. Her embryo was chosen because it showed no signs of genetic abnormalities in a procedure called preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD).

PGD involves the testing of embryos for signs of abnormalities before they are transferred to a woman's uterus.

The technique is recommended for couples whose offspring are at high risk for genetic diseases, such as cystic fibrosis, sickle cell and hemophilia, and for women of advanced maternal age who are at increased risk for having children with chromosomal abnormalities, such as Down syndrome.

The procedure was performed at Oregon Health Sciences University HSU Fertility Consultants Clinic in June. "We are delighted with this accomplishment for prospective parents," said reproductive endocrinologist Dr. Phillip Patton.

"PGD offers hope for couples at risk for genetic problems by improving their chances of having a healthy baby."
