Reassuring data concerning follow-up data of children born after preimplantation genetic diagnosis
Preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) was initially developed to prevent the risk of transmitting genetic diseases to the offspring of the carrier or affected couples. Later, the same procedure was also applied as preimplantation genetic testing for aneuploidies (PGT-A), with the aim of avoiding the transfer of abnormal embryos. The subsequent spread of PGD/PGT-A technology in infertility centers worldwide generated an intense scientific debate about its safety. Children born after assisted reproductive technology (ART), in fact, have been reported to be at higher risk of adverse perinatal outcomes compared with those conceived naturally (1–3).
