Almost all genetically inherited conditions that are
diagnosed in the prenatally can also be detected by PGD.
It is possible to perform PGD for any genetic disorders,
autosomal dominant, recessive or X-linked, with an
identifiable gene. For pathologies caused by expansions of
nucleotide triplets (such as Fragile X, Huntington's
disease, Myotonic Dystrophy, etc.) it is possible to obtain
information on the absence of triplet expansion. Whether or
not to undergo examination must therefore be evaluated
case-by-case. Below is a table listing of the most frequent
genetic diseases that can be diagnosed by PGD.
Research and Development Section of ?Genoma? Laboratory is
able to set-up and perform PGD for any genetic disorders
with an identifiable gene.
