Genetic research

Nowadays, genetic disorders are becoming more and more widespread. This kind of abnormalities are extremely dangerous, because no one really knows what lies dormant in their DNA and what their children can eventually inherit.

Statistically, more than 20% of pregnancies end in miscarriage on early stages and 1-1.6% of children are born with birth defects and hereditary diseases. 

Even though a miscarriage may have various causes, more than 80% of miscarriages happen because of genetic abnormalities. 

While planning a pregnancy it is possible to find out if there is any risk of your future baby having genetic disorders with the use of genetic tests. Furthermore, invasive techniques of diagnosis can help learn a lot about the health of the fetus in much more detail. These techniques analyze the embryo’s genetic material, retrieved through biopsy (amniocentesis). Invasive techniques are dangerous, especially so if the doctor lacks experience in the field. If performed wrong, these methods can cause a miscarriage all by themselves. 

Test panels by Natera allow us to detect genetic disorders and hereditary diseases by safe non-invasive methods. In Altravita you can get tested in order to determine the risk of the fetus having abnormalities, and check the fetus’s genotype for hereditary and chromosomal disorders at the early stages of pregnancy. Also, in case of a miscarriage or stillbirth, we can examine the fetal tissue in order to establish the cause of miscarriage and prevent it from happening again. 

The following genetic tests are available in our clinic:

  • HorizonTM – a non-invasive testing technique with the capability to detect 274 chromosomal disorders. It can be done either when you are planning for pregnancy, or on its early stages. 
  • Panorama - a non-invasive testing technique with the capability to detect the fetus’s chromosomal disorders and microdeletions. It is performed on the 9th week of pregnancy.
  • Vistara – it allows to accurately diagnose all abnormalities caused by monogenic mutations in 30 genes, that are impossible to detect by any other examinations. 
  • Anora – a diagnostic technique that allows to thoroughly examine the fetal tissue after a miscarriage in order to correctly determine its cause. It detects missing or duplicated chromosomes, deleted fragments of chromosomes and disomies, as well as estimates the risk of a molar pregnancy.

I am ever so grateful to Dr. Asharina, who managed to give me hope on one day becoming a mother again. After a miscarriage with severe complications, all other doctors would only shrug and tell me to try harder and keep waiting.  Dr. Asharina, on the other hand, figured out the problem during the very first visit and prescribed the suitable treatment. Now, we are hoping for positive results.

I first went to see Elena Alexandrovna in June. My spermogram was bad. The doctor said that was because of my hormones level and prescribed a treatment plan. After a month, we could already see positive changes. Although it’s still not perfect, I’m hoping for further improvements. The medicine is expensive, but it really works. It’s obvious that the Doctor know what she is doing. They do tests and…
