During the meeting with reproductive medicine specialists in Kiev, Professor Krzysztof Łukaszuk shared the conclusions concerning clinical practice and he talked about the results of research works conducted in INVICTA. His lecture, dedicated to the role of genetic tests in the diagnostics of recurrent miscarriages and the reasons for implantation disorders, met with great interest of the experts in the area of infertility from the whole Eastern Europe.
Specialist genetic tests are becoming increasingly important in the diagnostics of fertility disorders – which especially applies to the couples in the case of whom treatment programmes are unsuccessful, as well as to women who tend to miscarry. INVICTA Genetics Laboratory has been developing modern diagnostic methods that are useful in this context for more than a dozen years, including the next generation sequencing. The results of the conducted projects were the axis of the lecture entitled “Pre-implantation Genetic Diagnosis and Screening for Recurrent Pregnancy Losses.” In his speech Professor Łukaszuk pointed to such issues as (among others):
- The importance of genetic diagnostics of the material from miscarriage (POC – product of conception) for the establishment of reasons for recurrent miscarriages
- The usefulness of inclusion of the AMH (anti-Müllerian hormone) tests into basic diagnostics of patients with recurrent miscarriages
- The need to perform the karyotype test of future parents in the case of suspicion of implantation disorders or suffered miscarriages
- The possibility to increase the effectiveness of RPL treatment thanks to new solutions in the scope of pre-implantation diagnostics (PGD), especially in the case of patients with low AMH level
- The possibility of performance of embryo biopsy before the transfer and testing the material in the case of unsuccessful therapy as an alternative to PGD
- The importance of HCG measurement on the 11th day after the ovulation as the precise predictive factor for future clinical decisions.
