Yes, you can have a healthy family,
free from most diseases known to date.
You need to plan for HEALTH and THAI StemLife can assist you.
You need to know if you and your life partner are CARRIERS of any conditions that could be transmitted to your future child. With our CARRIER Status, state of the art saliva or blood-based test you will know your and your partner’s status in over 300 conditions. The list includes all conditions recommended by the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology (ACOG) and the American College of Medical Genetics (ACMG) for testing for all ethnicities. There is no more complete test at this moment. If by any chance both of you are carriers of the same genetic condition (e.g. Thalassemia or Cystic Fibrosis to name some conditions), then there is no reason for despair.
Our Preimplantation Genetic Testing (PGT)
by Superior ART will make sure that your future child is FREE from any genetic condition. Our successes have been published internationally. Do NOT despair if your family has already a child with a genetic condition or a childhood cancer treatable by stem cell transplantation. Contact us for a PGT-HLA (for genetic conditions) or only HLA genetic matching. This means that it is possible to have a second child, free of the genetic conditions that affect the older child, and at the same time be HLA-compatible (meaning the tissue type of the new sibling will be an EXACT MATCH of the affected older child). At birth of the second sibling, his/her cord blood stem cells will be collected and used at a later date for a CURATIVE stem cell transplantation of the affected sibling! See here our international publications about our success in curing Thalassemia in 12 affected siblings for the FIRST time in Asia! (click). Only 100 cases have been reported worldwide and 12 are from Superior ART and THAI StemLife.
If you are already pregnant and over 10 weeks of pregnancy, you can use the NIPT: Non-Invasive Prenatal Screening, a relatively new and highly accurate prenatal screening test that analyses foetal DNA in the mother’s blood for potential foetal chromosomal abnormalities, including Down syndrome, Edwards syndrome and Patau syndrome. The test can be performed as early as 10th week of gestation through a simple and safe blood draw and analyzed at our CLIA and CAP-accredited laboratories in Singapore and Taiwan. (Click)
If your child is already born, you can use our urine-based META-Child test, The Most Advanced Inborn Errors of Metabolism (IEMs) Screening Technology, to screen for over 150 metabolic conditions that can impact on your child’s development. The test will be analyzed at our CLIA and CAP accredited laboratories in Japan and early detection of those conditions can be life altering for a child. (Click).
