Reproductive options for mitochondrial disease: GP Webinar
Prof Thorburn will briefly revisit mitochondrial disease genetics, including both mtDNA and nuclear DNA variations. The challenges of offering reproductive options for mtDNA disorders will be compared and contrasted to nuclear gene disorders. Other reproductive options including prenatal diagnosis, PGD and egg donation will be considered prior to exploring mitochondrial donation in further detail. Case examples will also be presented.
