The article focuses on a study by the researchers in Hungary which showed that reproductive prognosis can be determined by the assessment of fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH). The study found that the analysis of spermatozoa from translocation carriers is an important tool in estimating risk of the occurrence of unbalanced speratozoa genome.

    BACKGROUND: The t(13;22) Robertsonian translocation constitutes a rare form of rearrangement between acrocentric human chromosomes. Most of the meiotic segregation studies of human Robertsonian translocations have been performed on common t(13;14) and t(14;21) translocations. Analysis of the...

    t(13;15) and t(14;15) are two rare Robertsonian translocations. Meiotic segregation was studied in four males heterozygous for the rare Robertsonian translocations t(13;15) and t(14;15). Both locus-specific probes (LSPs) and whole chromosome painting (WCP) probes, specific to chromosomes 13, 14...

    Jumping translocations (JTs) are very rare chromosome aberrations, usually identified in tumors. We report a constitutional JT between donor chromosome 21q21.3→qter and recipients 13qter and 18qter, resulting in an ∼15.5-Mb proximal deletion 21q in a girl with mild developmental...

    Introduction: Sperm aneuploidy screening is being commonly used as a counselling tool before carrying out a preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) cycle. However, its prognostic value over PGD has not been yet confirmed in the literature. The goal of this study was to find out whether sperm...
