What are the factors influencing the success rate for couples undergoing preimplantation genetic testing (PGT) for polycystic kidney disease (PKD)?
This article was published in the following journal.
Name: Human reproduction (Oxford, England)
Preimplantation genetic testing avoids the transmission of monogenic diseases or structural chromosome abnormality to the offspring in fertile couples. Furthermore, it allows screening for aneuploidie...
Cyst infection is a frequent and serious complication of autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) that is often difficult to treat. However, the factors influencing cyst infection are stil...
To compare the effectiveness of two protocols of blastocyst biopsy submitted to preimplantation genetic testing for aneuploidies (PGT-A).
The aim of this study was to compare the patient characteristics, type of genetic disease and inheritance, volume of activity, practice patterns and pregnancy outcomes, in private versus publically fu...
Comprehensive chromosome examination is a promising approach to Preimplantation Genetic Testing (PGT). Next to testing of specific chromosomes, such as in the case of reduced fertility due to chromoso...
Autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) is the most common monogenic hereditary kidney disease in humans. ADPKD may affect all the generations of the ADPKD family and the prob...
Gene Security Network has developed a novel technology called Parental SupportTM (PS) which is used for Preimplantation Genetic Screening/Diagnosis (PGS/D) during in vitro fertilization (I...
The primary objective of this study is to determine the predictive value of preimplantation genetic screening (PGS) as a marker of embryonic competence. Secondary objectives are to define ...
Genkyst is a regional cohort involving up to nephrologists working in private and public nephrology centers in the West of France. It registers clinical and molecular genetic data of all c...
To determine the role of genetic factors influencing risk factors for cardiovascular disease, ultimately identifying specific genes influencing the age-related progression of cardiovascula...
A complex disorder characterized by infertility, HIRSUTISM; OBESITY; and various menstrual disturbances such as OLIGOMENORRHEA; AMENORRHEA; ANOVULATION. Polycystic ovary syndrome is usually associated with bilateral enlarged ovaries studded with atretic follicles, not with cysts. The term, polycystic ovary, is misleading.
The discipline studying genetic composition of populations and effects of factors such as GENETIC SELECTION, population size, MUTATION, migration, and GENETIC DRIFT on the frequencies of various GENOTYPES and PHENOTYPES using a variety of GENETIC TECHNIQUES.
Factors that can cause or prevent the outcome of interest, are not intermediate variables, and are not associated with the factor(s) under investigation. They give rise to situations in which the effects of two processes are not separated, or the contribution of causal factors cannot be separated, or the measure of the effect of exposure or risk is distorted because of its association with other factors influencing the outcome of the study.
A condition caused by the excessive secretion of ANDROGENS from the ADRENAL CORTEX; the OVARIES; or the TESTES. The clinical significance in males is negligible. In women, the common manifestations are HIRSUTISM and VIRILISM as seen in patients with POLYCYSTIC OVARY SYNDROME and ADRENOCORTICAL HYPERFUNCTION.
Protein factors uniquely required during the initiation phase of protein synthesis in GENETIC TRANSLATION.
Nephrology - kidney function
Nephrology is a specialty of medicine and pediatrics that concerns itself with the study of normal kidney function, kidney problems, the treatment of kidney problems and renal replacement therapy (dialysis and kidney transplantation). Systemic conditions...
