Ethics Committee of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine
Preimplantation genetic testing for monogenic diseases for adult-onset conditions is ethically permissible for a range of conditions including when the condition is serious and no safe, effective interventions are available. The Committee strongly recommends that a genetic counselor experienced with PGT-M counsel patients considering such procedures. This document replaces the document titled “Use of preimplantation genetic diagnosis for serious adult-onset conditions: a committee opinion,” last published in Fertil Steril 2013;100;54-7.
