Human Reproductive Genetics Book Excerpt:

Human Reproductive Genetics: Emerging Technologies and Clinical Applications presents a great reference for clinicians and researchers in reproductive medicine. Part I includes a brief background of genetics and epigenetics, probability of disease, and the different techniques that are being used today for analysis and genetic counseling. Part II focuses on the analysis of the embryo, current controversies and future concepts. Part III comprises different clinical scenarios that clinicians frequently face in practice. The increasing amount of genetic tests available and the growing information that patients handle makes this section a relevant part of the fertility treatment discussion. Finally, Part IV concludes with the psychological aspects of genetic counseling and the role of counselor and bioethics in human reproduction. Provides an essential reference for clinicians involved in reproductive medicine Builds foundational knowledge on new genetic tests coming into the clinical scenario for physicians involved with patients Assembles critically evaluated chapters that cover basic concepts of genetics and epigenetics and the techniques involved, including preimplantation genetic testing, controversies, and more

Textbook of Human Reproductive Genetics Book Excerpt:

What happens with our genome and epigenome in the first fundamental days of our development? How can this be analysed? What do we need to know when faced with patients' questions about their own infertility, or how to prevent the birth of affected children? For the first time, this book brings together both scientists' and clinicians' viewpoints on human reproductive genetics, making for a more comprehensive discussion of interest to ART professionals and developmental biologists. With worldwide leaders in this burgeoning field guiding the reader through from the basics to the most exciting recent discoveries, this book presents the wider picture of how reproductive medicine and biology links with genetics. The editors also address the new challenges raised in how to treat and counsel patients at fertility and genetic clinics, as well as eliciting vivid bioethical debates. This book brings together genetics, reproductive biology and medicine for practitioners and geneticists.

Biotechnology of Human Reproduction Book Excerpt:

Since the birth of the first successful IVF baby over twenty years ago, the field of assisted reproduction has grown exponentially. Preimplantation genetic diagnosis, gamete and embryo freezing, and embryo cloning are only a few examples of reproductive biotechnologies that have stimulated a worldwide debate. Biotechnology of Human Reproduction presents an up-to-date basis for this debate. The book supplies a complete overview of how new biotechnologies benefit human reproductive medicine, from the viewpoints of both basic research and clinical application. The book explores the most relevant issues in the field, including reproductive genetics, biology, pharmacology, endocrinology, surgery, and assisted reproduction technology. In each chapter, scientists and clinicians give insight into a particular aspect of human reproduction. The science and technology in this field has expanded beyond all expectations, and will only continue to grow. The wealth of information available and the continuing growth in this field creates a continuing need for up-to-date knowledge. Biotechnology of Human Reproduction provides an expert and comprehensive overview of the field as it is understood and practiced today, and in the future.

The Ethics of Reproductive Genetics Book Excerpt:

This book is aimed at analyzing the foundations of medical ethics by considering different moral theories and their implications for judgments in clinical practice and policy-making. It provides a review of the major types of ethical theory that can be applied to medical and bioethical issues concerning reproductive genetics. In response to the debate on the most adequate ethical doctrine to guide biomedical decisions, this book formulates views that capture the best elements in each, bearing in mind their differences and taking into account the specific character of medicine. No historically influential position in ethics is by itself adequate to be applied to reproductive decisions. Thus, this book attempts to offer a pluralistic approach to biomedical research and medical practice. One usually claims that there are some basic principles (non-maleficence, beneficence, confidentiality, autonomy, and justice) which constitute the foundations of bioethics and medical ethics. Yet these principles conflict with each other and one needs some criteria to solve these conflicts and to specify the scope of application of these principles. Exploring miscellaneous ethical approaches as introduced to biomedicine, particularly to reproductive genetics, the book shall elucidate their different assumptions concerning human nature and the relations between healthcare providers, recipients, and other affected parties (e.g. progeny, relatives, other patients, society). The book attempts to answer the question of whether the tension between these ethical doctrines generates conflict in the field of biomedicine or if these competing approaches could in some way complement each other. In this respect, lecturers and researchers in bioethics would be interested in this reading this book.

Reproductive Genetics Gender and the Body Book Excerpt:

This book is all about reproductive genetics, a sociological concept developed to define the use of DNA-based technologies in the medical management and supervision of reproduction and pregnant women. In a searching analysis, Elizabeth Ettorre uncovers the hidden social processes involved in the development of these technologies. Focussing on prenatal screening, she explores how the key concepts of gender and the body are intertwined with the process of building genetic knowledge and some of the unintended consequences for women. These include the injection of biology into social relationships and the development of a gendered discourse of shame and stigmatisation in which the perfect body becomes idealised and new conceptions of disability are shaped. It becomes clear that the modernist tradition of scientific disinterestedness is being replaced by a new ethic: the making of moral judgements by scientists. Reproductive Genetics, Gender and the Body draws on interviews with European medical, legal and nursing professionals and raises important issues around the gendered, female body, the site of genetic capital. It challenges professional and scholar alike to grapple with and think through their responsibilities in this complex field where the competing issues have yet to be resolved.

The End of Sex and the Future of Human Reproduction Book Excerpt:

Within twenty, maybe forty, years most people in developed countries will stop having sex for the purpose of reproduction. Instead, prospective parents will be told as much as they wish to know about the genetic makeup of dozens of embryos, and they will pick one or two for implantation, gestation, and birth. And it will be safe, lawful, and free. In this work of prophetic scholarship, Henry T. Greely explains the revolutionary biological technologies that make this future a seeming inevitability and sets out the deep ethical and legal challenges humanity faces as a result. “Readers looking for a more in-depth analysis of human genome modifications and reproductive technologies and their legal and ethical implications should strongly consider picking up Greely’s The End of Sex and the Future of Human Reproduction...[It has] the potential to empower readers to make informed decisions about the implementation of advancements in genetics technologies.” —Dov Greenbaum, Science “[Greely] provides an extraordinarily sophisticated analysis of the practical, political, legal, and ethical implications of the new world of human reproduction. His book is a model of highly informed, rigorous, thought-provoking speculation about an immensely important topic.” —Glenn C. Altschuler, Psychology Today
