Would this treatment prevent the gene from being passed on??


This treatment which switches the mitochondria in IVF - would it allow a child to be born without the gene or is ALD not present in the mitochondria but elsewhere? I'm afraid my GCSE science has failed me in trying to interpret this!!

  • Discussing this on LBC now.

  • Sorry, what's LBC?

  • Ah right - the station. Have they mentioned ALD at all?

  • Had to go out to physio so I unfortunately missed most of the show.

    I would like to know if our future mums would have the choice of PGD or this procedure and if one is more preferential than the other.
