- M1-uppsats, Uppsala universitet/Forskargrupper (Inst. för kvinnor och barns hälsa)
Sammanfattning : Assisted reproductive technology procedures has become a more complex treatment over the years after implementation of preimplantation genetic diagnostics and cryopreservation methods such as slow freeze and vitrification. When embryos undergo these methods they are exposed to external damage that threaten to affect their quality and thereby lead to lower survival rates and lower pregnancy rates. LÄS MER
2. PGD på vinst och förlust. Etik och värden i den svenska politiska debatten kring preimplantatorisk genetisk diagnostik.Kandidat-uppsats, Lunds universitet/Statsvetenskapliga institutionen
Sammanfattning : Preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) is a relatively new technique which allows for parents to choose an embryo for implantation based on genetic information obtained from different embryos. The technique has potenatial beneficial effects such as the elimination and treatment of genetic disorders, but is also highly controversial due to its ethical and moral aspects, and the possible future scenarios of its uses.

4. Why Use Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis to Ensure the Birth of a Deaf Child? Or Rather, Why Not?Magister-uppsats, Linköpings universitet/Centrum för tillämpad etik
Sammanfattning : The more geneticists discover about which genes cause what traits, the more medical practitioners as well as ethicists will have to deal with questions such as which of the myriad of identifiable conditions could or should be allowed for preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) and subsequent implantation via in vitro fertilization. Not a lot of controversy seems to be raised when it comes to performing PGD for serious genetic conditions such as Tay-Sachs disease or Lesch-Nyhan syndrome, but what about other characteristics, for example, those which we normally would call disabilities? This thesis tackles this question, and in partifular the possibility of implanting embryos with that screen positive for deafness, as deaf parents, especially those coming from the Deaf community who see their condition as a positive part of their identity and cultural belongingness, have expressed interest in ensuring the birth of a deaf child.
