Description:
Pre-implantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) is an established alternative to prenatal testing for couples at risk of transmitting genetic disorders such as cystic fibrosis (CF).PGD screens pre-implantation embryos, allowing the safe transfer of those identified as unaffected. Awareness of CF carrier status in Ireland is increasing following the introduction of neonatal screening in 2011. PGD is the most acceptable reproductive strategy for many at risk Irish couples but until now the treatment necessitated travelling abroad. In 2012, the Irish Medicines Board licenced two Irish fertility clinics to carry out embryo biopsy for PGD. This is the first reported clinical pregnancy following PGD carried out in Ireland.
