New paper: Preimplantation Genetic Testing for Polygenic Disease Risk

Since its introduction to clinical practice, preimplantation genetic testing (PGT) has become a standard of care for couples at risk of having children with monogenic disease, and for chromosomal aneuploidy to improve outcomes for patients with infertility. The primary objective of PGT is to reduce the risk of miscarriage and genetic disease and to improve the success of infertility treatment with the delivery of a healthy child. Until recently, the application of PGT to more common but complex polygenic disease was not possible, as the genetic contribution to polygenic disease has been difficult to determine, and the concept of embryo selection across multiple genetic loci has been difficult to comprehend. Several achievements, including the ability to obtain accurate, genome-wide genotypes of the human embryo, and the development of population level biobanks have now made PGT for polygenic disease risk applicable in clinical practice. With the rapid advances in embryonic polygenic risk scoring, diverse considerations beyond technical capability have been introduced.

Webinar: M2 Test for Risk of Miscarriage

Our guest speaker Prof. Simon Fishel will cover the clinical utility of the M2 test for risk of miscarriage. Next, our field application specialist and PhD candidate Bhavini Rana will describe the development of this novel test in adults and embryos, followed by the GPCL CSO and lab director Dr. Treff, who will present data on this variant in different populations.
