ESTEEM - the ESHRE study into the evaluation of oocyte euploidy by microarray analysis

The genetic screening of fertilised eggs for embryo selection in assisted reproduction makes no difference to live birth rates, according to results from the largest published study of its kind. Results from this multicentre randomised controlled trial are reported in the journal Human Reproduction and, say the authors, confirm the “widely accepted” view that preimplantation genetic testing for chromosome abnormality (PGT-A) will not increase live birth rates in IVF.
