Chromosome screening | 1999

Chromosome, or aneuploidy screening, could be one way of reducing the rate of miscarriage following IVF treatment.

It is thought that, particularly in older women, screening could pick out faults which otherwise might reduce the chance of the embryo implanting successfully.

While the technique has been offered in the US and Europe since the late 1990s, the first pregnancy following aneuploidy screening in the UK is only just underway in 2003.
