Welcome  To Our IVF/ICSI/Infertility/Genetics Clinic


The Jaslok-FertilTree International Fertility Centre, previously known as the Department of Assisted Reproduction and Genetics, has been functional since October 1990. We have had the privilege to render fertility treatment to infertile couples from every state of India and from 60 different countries resulting in the birth of more than 12,500 babies.

Recent surveys by the i3 Research consultants team of Times of India dated 16th December 2016, 29th November 2017 and 29th November 2018 have ranked our IVF centre as the FIRST in India, FIRST in West Zone and FIRST in Mumbai. The ET Healthcare Fertility Awards 2019 placed our IVF team as the Most Integrated Team in India and the Best IVF Clinic in India.

A survey to help patients find the best infertility clinic in India for giving fertility treatment was conducted by India’s leading weekly News Magazine – OUTLOOK in July 2002. The opinion of 679 doctors around the country was taken. Jaslok Hospital’s IVF clinic was rated as one of the best IVF clinics in India and the best IVF/ICSI clinic in Mumbai.

Our Department has also received award for Excellence in NABH Audit for 2019 in our Jaslok Hospital for both IVF and Genetics.

Dr. Firuza Parikh who is responsible for the birth of the first ICSI baby in India was selected by doctors and patients interviewed by THE WEEK (May 6, 2007) which is one of the leading News Magazine in India as a pioneer in the field of IVF and Assisted Reproduction and the IVF clinic has also been selected as one of the best IVF clinics in India for Infertility Treatment.

Our IVF Center has state-of-the art facilities for In Vitro Fertilization (IVF), Intra Cytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI), Intra Cytoplasmic Morphologically Selected Sperm Injection (IMSI), Laser Assisted Hatching (LAH), Semen banking, Embryo Cryopreservation, Oocyte freezing and Cumulus Aided Transfer (CAT- a technique pioneered by Dr. Firuza Parikh for the first time in the world), a fully functional Andrology Laboratory for diagnostic and therapeutic tests and a State-of-the-Art Genetics facility.

Our Genetics Lab utilizes automated Karyotyping Workstations for chromosome analysis and Fluoresecnce in situ Hybridization (FISH) and has advanced equipment for molecular genetic tests like the Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR). Prenatal, Postnatal and Preimplantation Genetic Testing (PGT) is carried out in our laboratory. We have facilities for Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) and Array Comparative Genomic Hybridization (aCGH).

Our IVF centre set up the First PGD Laboratory in India in 1999 for testing genetic disorders.

Couples with female and male infertility are counselled for both medical and surgical causes of infertility. We offer treatment for ovulatory disorders and other endocrine problems which cause infertility. Endoscopic procedures & surgical management of infertility are also carried out. We have a large series of more than 8000 cases of endoscopy including operative laparoscopy and hysteroscopy.

The science of Assisted Reproduction has moved forward by leaps and bounds. Since its inception in 1990, the Department of Assisted Reproduction & Genetics, now formally called Jaslok -FertilTreeInternational Fertility Centre, has endeavored to help couples have babies. We pledge to continue our research to provide the best fertility treatment in India in order to help couples realize their dream of having a healthy child. This year we celebrate our 30th anniversary.

Success Stories


Success after Preimplantation Genetic Testing for Aneuploidies (PGT-A)

 

PGT-A was offered to following conditions with history of:

  1. Previous IUI failures
  2. Previous IVF/ICSI failures
  3. Previous spontaneous abortions
  4. Previous miscarriages
  5. One of the partners carrying chromosomal abnormalities such as Balanced Translocations and/or inversions
  6. Advanced maternal age
  7. Poor quality oocytes / embryos

We started offering FISH technique for PGT-A since 2001 for 5 common chromosomal aneuploidies (13, 18,21, and sex chromosomes). Our clinical pregnancy rate was 28.1% per cycle and 35.9% per couple. Currently our clinical pregnancy rate with PGT-A/PGS for all 24 chromosomes is 42.1% per cycle and 50.6% per couple.

 

PGT-A by FISH for a Robertsonian Translocation:

 

A young couple married since 4 years with a history of 2 missed abortions after natural conception visited us with a request for PGT as the wife was found to be carrier of a balanced Robertsonian translocation t(13;14). After IVF-ICSI, a single blastomere was biopsied from each of the embryos and FISH was set up in 2 rounds to check for aneuploidy of chromosomes 13 and 14. One normal embryo was obtained in that cycle and transferred at blastocyst stage resulting in a successful pregnancy followed by full term live birth. This is the first reported case from India for PGT-A for Robertsonian translocation.

 

PGT-SR by FISH for a Reciprocal Translocation:

 

A couple with a history of five early miscarriages due to a balanced reciprocal translocation t(6;19) in the wife, was referred for preimplantation genetic testing for structural abnormality (PGT-SR) by fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH). A Day 3 embryo biopsy was performed. FISH using centromere and subtelomere probes for chromosomes 6 and 19 was carried out. The embryos with unbalanced translocations, were not transferred. The embryos which showed either balanced translocation or absence of translocation were transferred. A pregnancy was achieved in the same cycle itself and resulted in the birth of a healthy baby. This is the first baby after PGD for a reciprocal translocation in India. 

 

We have offered PGT-SR using FISH technique for various translocations where aCGH/NGS technique fail to detect the abnormality. 

 

PGT-SR by FISH for inversion and cryptic translocation:

 

A couple with a history of recurrent miscarriages and implantation failures had karyotyping done in three laboratories which showed that the husband had an insertion or inversion of chromosome 12. On pre-PGT workup for inversion 12 by FISH, an additional anomaly of a cryptic translocation between termianl regions of one copy of chromosomes 9 and 12 each was detected in the husband. After PGT-SR on blastomeres, the normal and balanced embryos transferred at blastocyst stage, resulted in the birth of healthy twins conceived in the first cycle itself. This is the first report from India for successful live births after PGT-SR for inversion and cryptic translocation.

 

PGT-SR by FISH for a complex chromosomal rearrangement involving a cryptic translocation:

 

A non-consanguinous Indian couple had a son with an unbalanced translocation t (16;17) detected after microarray. Prenatal diagnosis during the second pregnancy showed a similarly affected fetus. The husband was a carrier of a balanced translocation. We then recommended IVF-ICSI with PGT-SR by FISH as the terminal portions of the chromosomes were involved where PGT-SR by aCGH was not possible. During pre-PGT workup with FISH probes we found the involvement of 3rd partner chromosome 9 in the translocation which was not picked up in the previous pregnancies or husband’s analysis by aCGH. After IVF-ICSI trophectoderm biopsy at blastocyst stage was carried out and FISH was performed in 3 different rounds. The lady conceived after a frozen embryo transfer in the next cycle. This is the first report from India for PGT-SR by FISH for cryptic three way translocation.

 

PGT-A by aCGH/NGS:

 

We offer PGT-A for all 24 chromosomes using aCGH/NGS technology. Currently our clinical pregnancy rate is 42.1% per cycle and 50.6% per couple. Our implantation rate is 53.4%.

 

 

PGT-M for single gene disorders:

Beta thalassemia:

 

Beta thalassemia is one of the major genetic disorders affecting Indian population. This disorder is caused by mutations in beta globin gene. When both the parents are carriers of mutation in the beta globin gene, there are higher chances of having an affected child (autosomal recessive inheritance). We have several pregnancies following PGT-M for this disorder.

 

Neurofibromatosis:

 

A couple came to us where the male partner had symptoms of Neurofibromatosis Type 1. This was an autosomal dominant condition. This meant that a single altered copy of the gene was sufficient to cause the disease in the future baby. With multiple IVF cycles, sufficient embryos were collected and PGT-M was used to select an unaffected embryo for successive transfer. The lady delivered a male child free of Neurofibromatosis.

 

Hereditary predisposition for BRCA1 mutation:

 

A couple came to our clinic with history of previous 3 recurrent miscarriages through IUI and IVF treatment. The maternal side of the female partner had a strong history of ovarian as well as breast cancer. Her grandmother and 2 of her maternal aunts had breast cancer, her mother had ovarian cancer and her maternal uncle had prostate cancer. She herself was found to be heterozygous for BRCA1 mutation. As this was an autosomal dominant condition, there was a high risk of having cancer in future progeny. Hence we counseled the couple and offered PGD for BRCA1 mutation through the ICSI/PGT-M procedure. After transfer of mutation-free embryos, the woman carried a twin pregnancy and gave birth to two normal male children at full term.

 

Tay-Sachs disease :

 

Tay–Sachs disease is a genetic disorder that results in the destruction of nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord. Tay–Sachs disease is caused by a genetic mutation in the HEXA gene on chromosome 15. It is inherited from a person’s parents in an autosomal recessive manner. A non-consanguineously married couple came to our clinic for PGT. Their child died due to Tay- Sachs disease. Pre-PGT work up was carried out and the couple was found to be mutation carriers. Within 3 IVF cycles, sufficient embryos were collected, PGT-M with PGT-A was carried out to select cytogenetically normal and unaffected  embryos for successive transfer. The pregnancy is ongoing.

 

Propionic Acidemia:

 

Propionic Academia is an autosomal recessive disorder, where the parents are carriers of mutation. A consanguinously married couple came to our clinic whose previous child passed away due to homozygous mutation in the PCCA gene. Pre-PGD work up was carried out to confirm the mutation. Two IVF cycles created sufficient embryos for PGT-M with PGT-A. Euploid unaffected  embryo transfer resulted in a pregnancy which is ongoing.

 

Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD):

 

A couple came to our clinic with history of DMD in the family. It is X-linked disorder where 50% females can be carriers and 50% males will be affected. Her brother passed away due to DMD and she was found to be a carrier for DMD mutation. Sufficient number of embryos were obtained through multiple cycles and PGT-M for DMD followed by PGT-A. We have several pregnancies after PGT-M for this condition.
