The industry of birth care and medical service is in the high level of its development. These improvements allowed improving the running of pregnancy, labors and delivery. Today most people tend to professional well planned childbirth arrangement that helps them to overcome numerous problems caused by the difficult situation with environment all physical problems. Some serious problems that can result in childbirth defects and afterward development problems can be judged only on the genetic level. Fortunately, the modern medicine facilities help to preview the basic problems even at the stage of embryo development. Preimplantation genetic diagnosis pgd is on of these methods.
Preimplantation genetic diagnosis pgd is a new technology that is applied with IVF cycle (in-vitro fertilization). The purpose of the method of preimplantation genetic diagnosis pgd is to control and forecast the development of the early embryos and detect diseases. This method provides possibility to observe development of the embryo from the eight-cell stage. If the analyst is sure that embryo is not under the risk of serious diseases it can be safely implanted into woman's organism. The level of new technologies possibilities is extremely high. Using the preimplantation genetic diagnosis pgd method a woman and her partner get 100% of risk avoiding of any serious disease of their future chills choosing the best embryo. The technique was always famous all over the world as perfect variant for struggling with Down's syndrome and other serious genetic disorders (Tay-Sachs, Cystic fibrosis, Cooley's anemia, Huntington's Chorea, sickle cell diseases, etc).
Even many scientists prove the effectiveness and wide range of application with numerous pgd benefits there are still some groups of opposes usually who are against the embryos destruction. Some organizations also dispute against the usage of the preimplantation genetic diagnosis pgd. They stress the uncontrolled nature of this kind of testing. Some people preview that couples will start using the pgd for their personal interests: selecting the preferable child's sex, cosmetic and other facts not related to diseases. According to laws of most countries, it is possible to use preimplantation genetic diagnosis only for two genes.
The biggest benefit of method usage is non permission for pregnancy and delivery in the case of chromosomally abnormal. It is useful in both cases of fertile and not fertile couples. Even fertile partners have only 15-20% of conceiving as most of embryos have chromosomally abnormal effects. Pgd description shows that procedure itself presents looking at the embryo appearance using the microscope. It is perfect method of genetic analysis of cells and for the conclusion if they are normal or abnormal.
Although the debates on the topic of pgd method later usage are still on the progress it is obvious that a number of procedure benefits rise it to the position of high value medical procedures.
