A fertility clinic in Nottingham, England has announced the world's first pregnancy using a new technique that screens eggs for abnormalities that cause in vitro fertilization (IVF) to fail. Researchers from the CARE Fertility clinic have found a way of extracting a "spare" set of chromosomes inside the egg and rapidly analyzing them"”a technique that could have the potential to significantly improve couples' chances of having successful treatment. The study suggests chromosomal...

A "chip" or array that can quickly detect disorders such as Down syndrome or other diseases associated with chromosomal abnormalities proved an effective tool in prenatal diagnosis in a series of 300 cases at Baylor College of Medicine, said researchers in a report that appears in the current issue of the journal Prenatal Diagnosis. In the report, a team led by Dr. Arthur Beaudet and Dr. Sau Wai Cheung at BCM, described use of array comparative genomic hybridization to analyze samples taken...

By Muradyan, Artur Boldt, Vivien; Steininger, Anne; Stabentheiner, Stephanie; Tebel, Katrin; Kreutzberger, Jurgen; Muller, Ines; Madle, Hannelore; Popper, Helmut H; Ullmann, Reinhard The accumulation of chromosomal aberrations is a characteristic feature of tumor development. However, an understanding of tumorigenesis that assumes that changes in DNA copy number always cause equivalent changes in the corresponding RNA and protein levels is an oversimplification and completely ignores the...

The Colorado Center for Reproductive Medicine (CCRM) announced today an increase in in vitro fertilization (IVF) success rates to 80 percent from its Institutional Review Board-approved clinical preimplantation genetic screening (PGS) study involving comprehensive screening of all 23 pairs of chromosomes on day five embryos (blastocysts). In May 2007, CCRM commenced this innovative, world first clinical study, which screens for all 23 pairs of chromosomes on a few cells removed from the...
