ESHRE PGT consortium anniversary movie


Well the first PGD cases were in the
early 90s and at that time IVF success rates were very low. It wasn’t until the
mid nineties that we began to think that we needed a committee to pull the data
together. There was some inherent concerns from those of us that were
there at the very beginning. That with more and more labs obviously trying to
set up what was really very sophisticated and difficult technology,
that there needed to be some sort of body that was going to provide some
professional guidance. We all remember in the early days when we were collecting
data we had to fill in the papers and fax them. The consortium has had a
particular role in establishing guidelines. We set up external quality
assessments and we have had a good practice across the PGD field. The most important
part is that you bring people together that are in the same field but also you
provide annual data on the frequency of treatments. How effective they really are.
It’s most important for us to continue our education and also to
continue the collaboration of the consortium. If I’m going to set up a PGD
service in my hospital it’s important that I can actually use all that experience
and all that information to make sure when it’s set up it’s set up right. Another
challenge that we’re going to face is the need to standardize some of the
methodologies that we are using in embryo testing. In this respect the consortium
can do a lot for their participants because they can always attend to
the consortium and ask for the names of people that are skilled in this
because it takes quite some skill and then in that way we are able to help
newcomers in the field or people that want to engage on new developments. What
I’d like to see in the next 20 years is for us to collect much lighter data
but from all of the Centers to hear all of the cycles of PGD. So we really have
an idea of the global use of PGD. It will be incredibly useful to have that
expertise and knowledge within a central go-to-point. There’s no bias there it’s
a lot of information that we all need and we should all should be paying
attention to.
