Reproductive Medicine Annual Meeting

WASHINGTON and MORRISTOWN, N.J., Oct. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Researchers at Reproductive Medicine Associates of New Jersey (RMA) received the highest award for research at the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) for developing a novel technology making it possible to provide accurate, rapid analysis of all 46 human chromosomes from a single cell taken from a human embryo. The ASRM Prize Paper Award is awarded to the most significant research in the field of human reproduction each year. This new technology makes it possible for the first time to fully evaluate the genetic make up of human embryos in a time frame which allows clinicians and scientists to use that information to help improve pregnancy rates, reduce miscarriage risk, and decrease the risk of some major congenital anomalies such as Down syndrome.

This procedure, known as "Accurate 23 chromosome aneuploidy screening in human blastomeres using single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNP)," provides fertility specialists for the first time with a rapid and accurate technique to assess the genetic normality of human embryos created through in vitro fertilization (IVF).

The results of this research effort were presented this week at the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) meeting and were awarded the General Program Prize Paper Award, the highest award provided by this international professional society. Nathan Treff, Ph.D., lead author on the study and a researcher in molecular genetics at RMA, delivered the results in an oral presentation. "Accurate and rapid identification of chromosomally- abnormal (aneuploid) embryos within hours after embryo biopsy will provide physicians with the ability to select embryos for transfer to the uterus based on a far more compl
