New IVF Treatment Brings Hope for Those Affected by Infertility

As per a new research being taken out be a group of scientists from the Monash University, it has been revealed that they have developed a new system in which people suffering from infertility problems and other genetic disease, will be able to have children.

The development is known as preimplantation genetic screening (PGS). It is said that the system has 99% accuracy rate and will provide best chances to couples to become parents. In addition, it is said that the system will make ensure that only the healthiest chromosomes for baby are implanted.

Monash IVF geneticist and PGS coordinator Dr. Elissa Osborne said that they are soon going to start screenings. They are looking for elderly women and those, who have suffered multiple miscarriages. Screening will also include those couples, who have not attained success in IVF procedures and couples suffering from genetic diseases.

The development is so fast that it can test at least 30,000 different DNA sites at one time. In addition, the screening will be able to see other genetic diseases like Down syndrome, and Huntington's disease. Early detection will make doctors to rectify the problem at right time.

“The breakthrough with the latest SNP array testing is that in addition to screening all 23 chromosome pairs, it detects a far wider range of chromosome abnormalities and can determine the genetic source of any additional or missing chromosomes”, said Osborne.

The new development is quite fast than old fertility treatments as old treatments are not able to detect any kind of problem in the egg and sperm. It is said that they system will be able to give hope to many Victorian couples. It is also the first ever development of such kind in Australia, said Osborne.
