IVF Advance - 70 babies born from embryos that would have previously been discarded
Posted: 26/07/2023 1:40:53 PM
A study by Genea Fertility scientists has led to the birth of 70 healthy babies from the use of embryos which would have previously been deemed unfit for use and discarded.
Embryos created during fertility treatment are graded on their appearance during the early stages of development. Traditionally embryos classified as 1PN (one pro-nuclei) were believed to have insufficient genetic material to be viable and were therefore discarded.
However, Genea Fertility embryologists believed a number of 1PN embryos had the potential to achieve successful pregnancies, despite the lack of genetic material seen during early development.

is a non-invasive genetic prenatal screening test which can be done as early as 10 weeks or at any time throughout pregnancy. It takes a sample of the mothers blood which contains the baby’s DNA and can accurately detect chromosomal changes in the baby during pregnancy.
A recent study of 1,000 pregnant women demonstrated the accuracy of GeneSyte by identify that 42 women would have been incorrectly classified as high risk and referred for CVS (Chorionic Villus Sampling) or Amniocentesis where only 5 pregnant women actually needed such invasive diagnostic testing.
