A new, cheaper embryo screening procedure has proven to be successful and may change the way doctors choose what embryos are fertilized during in-vitro fertilization.
FOX's Colleen Cappon has more in today's edition of Housecall For Health:
The first IVF baby to be screened using a new, low-cost procedure that can read every letter of the human genome has been born in the U.S. The Philadelphia couple had embryonic cells analyzed by specialists who checked them for genetic abnormalities; helping fertility doctors select embryos with the right number of chromosomes and a much higher chance of a healthy baby. More clinical tests are needed before the system can be widely used.
