There's a story in the Guardian about a new technique that uses CGH instead of FISH for screening out defective embryos that have chromosomal abnormalities in women trying to get pregnant by in vitro fertilization. In a study led by scientists at Oxford University and Reprogenetics UK, and the Colorado Center for Reproductive Medicine, 78 percent of the 23 women who underwent IVF in the study became pregnant with embryos screened using CGH. The researchers will soon begin a clinical trial in the UK.
