Till date, only a very limited number of studies have investigated the effect of transferring only euploid embryos after PGS on pregnancy outcomes.
[20] had initially observed a deficit in such form of CA1 LTP in Ts65Dn mice compared with euploid control mice, additional studies, beginning with Costa and Grybko [14], found that this form of LTP is unaffected in Ts65Dn mice.
Extended cultivation until the blastocyst stage somewhat contributes to increased implantation rates, but it has been proven that aneuploid embryos can reach high-quality blastocyst stage as well as euploid embryos [7, 8].
The main outcome measure of this study, which was performed by Dr Christos Venetis from the University of New South Wales and colleagues at IVF Australia, was the number of chromosomally normal ("euploid") embryos identified by preimplantation genetic screening (PGS) in more than 700 treatment cycles at three IVF centres.
Penzias and fellow committee members reviewed national data from 2013 that showed similar pregnancy rates for women aged 42 years and younger who received a single euploid blastocyst or two untested blastocysts.
PGS showed 10 aneuploid embryos and 1 euploid embryo.
The authors observed that, for each year increase in female age, euploidy rate decreased by 2.9 percentage points in both day 3 and blastocysts (95% CI: -3.8% to -2.0%, p < 0.001), and the odds of achieving at least one euploid embryo were decreased as a function of increased female age in both groups (odds ratio (OR) 0.82, 95% CI 0.70-0.94, p = 0.006).
P19 cells have a male euploid karyotype (40 and XY), and much like F9 cells are considered nullipotent [47].
In the article titled "A Higher Ovarian Response after Stimulation for IVF Is Related to a Higher Number of Euploid Embryos" [1], an incorrect version of Figure 2(d) is published.
Euploid embryos have a higher chance of implantation, and the resulting pregnancies have a lower chance of miscarriage.
