Patient NL, 29 years old from Vietnam, consulted with Dr Nisarath at Superior A.R.T. due to a family history of X-linked Duchene muscular dystrophy (DMD), of which she was a carrier. Superior A.R.T. built a PGD Genetics test for the family before NL had one stimulation cycle producing 15 eggs with four good embryos biopsied for PGD-PCR analysis.

The PGD-PCR resulted in three unaffected embryos, with one good embryo transferred resulting in a healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby. Following the birth NL had a second good frozen embryo transferred resulting in another healthy birth. NL and her husband were overjoyed at having two healthy babies unaffected by the crippling family disease.
