Preimplanted Genetic Screening Should Be Interpreted With Caution

..., we could elucidate the origin of the chromosomal aberrations and follow different chromosomal modifications as they occurred during preimplantation period. The timing is significant because embryos used in IVF are normally transferred at between 3 and 5 days old, says Ms Frumkin. We found that embryos which ...

Soft Contacts Designed for Cone-Shaped Cornea
