Staff at Waterstone Clinic recently announced that an Irish couple, who have one daughter with mucolipidosis, a rare and life-limiting genetic condition, delivered a baby, Megan, unaffected by the condition as a result of pre-implantation genetic diagnosis (PGD).
It is the first reported incidence in the world of successful PGD using karyomapping in the case of mucolipidosis. Karyomapping is a new technique that has transformed the field of PGD due to its rapid and robust method of detecting a wide range of genetic diseases in embryos.
