PGD (preimplantation genetic diagnosis)

A technique that can enable people to avoid passing gene mutations, and therefore disease predisposition, on to their children. It involves testing the genes of embryos created through IVF.

Also known as PGT-M: Preimplantation Genetic Testing for Monogenic disorders.
