World's First IVF Baby Born after Preimplantation Genome Sequencing is Now 11 Months Old
Date:7/22/2013

n>, 7-11 July, 2013, research findings of BGI and CITIC- XIANGYA were presented in the lecture of Dr. Jian Li and colleagues from BGI, creating considerable acknowledgement among experts worldwide. In the next talk, Dr. Dagan Wells and colleagues from Oxford University announced the birth of the first IVF baby of the Western Hemisphere after genomic sequencing in England.

Professor Guangxiu Lu, President of CITIC XIANGYA and one of the founders and pioneers in human assisted reproduction in China hailed the birth as a landmark event in human IVF. As sequencing is the most accurate method for detection of genetic anomalies, doctors can transfer the best embryos of the cohort, this way pregnancy rates may be increased and the chance of abnormalities of genetic origin decreased.

Dr. Yutao Du, Vice-President of BGI Health Group said that with the introduction of new procedures, the cost of sequencing has decreased dramatically. Accordingly, preimplantation sequencing will become a choice for more and more IVF couples. The accuracy is increasing continuously, and new bioinformatic analysis approaches enable scientists to detect specific genetic disorders, even from single cells. Accordingly, preimplantation sequencing may have a crucial role in improving the efficiency and safety of human assisted reproduction.
