Status quo and developments of pre-implantation genetic diagnosis. TAB-Fokus

Albrecht, Steffen; Grüber, Katrin


Pre-implantation genetic diagnosis enables the genetic testing of embryos in the process of in vitro fertilisation before they are transplanted.
The method raises ethical questions, affects different societal interests and therefore represents a continuing legislative challenge.
In 2011, balancing individual and societal interests with regard to the handling of embryos and discrimination against those affected, a majority of the German Bundestag voted for a strictly limited authorisation.
To date, with around 300 applications per year, the number of people making use of PGD corresponds to the estimations formulated in the legislative process.
The further development depends on questions regarding reimbursement, the number of indications approved by the PGD Ethics Committees and the clarification of
open legal questions.
