Centre for Reproductive Genetics

The number of embryos examined for the presence of genetic abnormalities: 1250

iVF Riga Genetic Center

iVF Riga opens the first Genetic Center in Northern Europe where will it be possible to get in-depth genetic examinations.

Genetic counselling is important for couples who are just planning to become parents. Genetic counseling is recommended if:

Your family has a history of children born with malformations, mental or physical retardation, genetic diseases, stillbirth child, and history of consanquinity

You should be more considered of the health of a child due to later pregnancy (after 35), as adverse effects (mother’s illness, medications, physical and chemical factors) on the fetus  are common.

Genetic Laboratory of the iVF Riga Center for Reproductive Genetics currently provides additional testing for the following diseases:

  • Coeliac disease. Timely diagnosis of genetic predisposition to gluten intolerance.
  • Congenital lactose intolerance diagnostication.
  • Ichthyosis — congenital skin condition when the epidermis becomes dry and rough due to excessive keratin production.
  • Hereditary hemochromatosis – hereditary, genetically caused disorder, which is characterized by excessive accumulation of iron in the body’s tissues and organs, including men's testicular tissues. Excessive iron accumulation can cause a gradual cessation of spermatogenesis.

  • Alpha‑1-antitrypsin deficiency, which leads to a violation of the elasticity and strength of the structural elements of the lungs and as a result — the development of emphysema. Alpha‑1-antitrypsin deficiency is particularly dangerous for smokers: their lifetime significantly reduces due to lung deterioration.

  • Recessive sensorineural hearing loss. Analysis of the most common GJB2 gene mutations, which lead to congenital hearing loss.
