1 Webinar: Non-Invasive Assays for Human Embryos: Deciphering Differences from Small Signals
Session dates: Tuesday, November 12, 2013 Starting time: 11:30 am, Eastern Standard Time (New York, GMT-05:00) Duration: 1 hour Presenters: Denny Sakkas,David Duffy Description: Non-Invasive Assays for Human Embryos: Deciphering Differences from Small Signals Sponsored by Quanterix Corporation Presenters: Denny Sakkas, Ph.D., Scientific Director, Boston IVF David Duffy, Ph.D., Vice President, Research and Chief Technology Officer, Quanterix Corporation The percentage of babies born from Assisted Reproduction Techniques or In Vitro Fertilization in many countries is now between 2%-6%. One major issue is that many of the pregnancies are twins or triplets, which can lead to complications for both the mother and infants. The twins and triplets occur because multiple embryos are created using these procedures and 2 or more embryos are replaced back to the mother so as to increase the chances of pregnancy. Being able to identify which single embryo is the one that will lead to a pregnancy would allow us to safely transfer one embryo. During In Vitro Fertilization embryos are grown individually in small microliter droplets of culture media for several days and produce numerous factors which if diagnosed could provide information as to which individual embryo was the most viable. The Single Molecule Array (Simoa) technology and its ability to quantify low abundance protein biomarkers may provide the non-invasive assay capable of identifying these individual embryos.
2 Biomedsearch
BioMedSearch is an enhanced version of the NIH PubMed search that combines MedLine/PubMed data with data from other sources to make the most comprehensive biomedical literature search available. BioMedSearch also provides advanced account features that allow saved searches, alerts, saving documents to portfolios, commenting on documents and portfolios, and sharing documents with other registered users.
3 'Choosing Your Baby' - Lecture by Baroness Ruth Deech
A lecture by the former chairperson of the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority, free to watch, read or download: "How IVF and embryology have developed to enable would-be parents to use embryo diagnosis to select an embryo free of an inherited disease. We will question whether this has an adverse effect on attitudes towards the disabled. How do we draw the line between eugenics and doing the best for the unborn child? The advantages and disadvantages of choosing the sex of a baby, and attitudes in other countries. In future might it be possible to select the child's traits through embryo selection? The new British law on is will be explained."
