PGD (preimplantation genetic diagnosis) is used in ‘in vitro fertilization’ remedy to make genetic analysis of embryos which are formed from egg and sperms taken from future mother and fathers and it is a an operation that chooses healthy embryos before transferring them to future mothers.

By PGD, parents’ genetic disease transfer to embryo or number of chromosomes of healthy parents are examined. Only the health embryos are transferred/implanted to future mothers by PGD, so, it is a good alternative to existing prenatal diagnosis methods (amniosynthesis, CVS). In prenatal diagnosis methods, if a problem occurs, pregnancy is terminated.

The only method that is known at the present for eliminating risks for families who are under high risks of having genetically diseased children is PGD. By this means, contradiction of pregnancy termination (which occurs after prenatal diagnosis) is resolved and genetic diseases are prevented before pregnancy. PGD is a molecular genetics method that is used since 1990s with tens of thousands cases take place in literature and requires high-tech and sensitive application.
