|Current Progress in PGD and Future PGDIS Activities|
|March 18, 2011|
Dear Colleague,As mentioned in the previous PGDIS Newsletter, PGD for inherited disorders has become extremely accurate (99.5%), and may currently be performed for any genetic condition, even without known sequence information or available haplotypes. The application of PGD is now extended well beyond testing for genetic disorders, with further implications to improving the access to HLA compatible stem cell transplantation for genetic and acquired disorders.
