Mitochondrial DNA content is an indicator of the energetic status of the embryo. By selecting those embryos with the best Mitochondrial Score (Ms), implantation rate for PGS can be improved. The objective is to provide a new biomarker that helps IVF clinics to select the euploid embryos with higher potential for implantation and therefore increase pregnancy rates.
It is well established that energy is an important component of embryo viability. At IGENOMIX we have carried out a study to determine whether mtDNA copy number in euploid embryos could be considered as an index to understand embryo viability and its impact on implantation and pregnancy potential.
