Informed consent for preimplantation genetic diagnosis may be inadequate -- LaBonte -- Journal of Medical Ethics

An analysis of US fertility centre educational materials suggests that informed consent for preimplantation genetic diagnosis may be inadequate -- LaBonte -- Journal of Medical Ethics: While some human studies have concluded that PGD is safe, animal studies and a recent human study suggest that the embryo biopsy procedure may result in neurological problems for the offspring. 86.6% of PGD-performing centres state that PGD is safe and/or fail to disclose any risks on their websites despite the fact that the impact of the procedure on the long-term health of offspring is unproven.
