Extensively illustrated, this atlas is a manual for the establishment and realization of PGD within the framework of assisted reproduction and genetics services. Fully revised and updated, the atlas includes descriptions of the authors' pioneering work on polar body based PGD for genetic and chromosomal disorders. The authors' novel experience of PGD for late-onset disorders with genetic predisposition will be of special interest. Their accumulated PGD experience for poor-prognosis IVF patients presents further evidence of the improvement of clinical outcome and the requirement for meiotic error testing for a higher accuracy of preselecting aneuploidy-free embryos for transfer.

This remarkably authoritative new book presents a complete overview of reproductive endocrinology, infertility, assisted reproduction, and in vitro fertilization. It encompasses the full range of scientific and clinical advances in the field, from the development of the world's first "test tube" baby to the assisted reproductive technologues which now allow human conception to occur in otherwise hopeless cases of infertility. The senior author is the world's preeminent scientist in human embryology and assisted reproduction. He was the first scientist in history to achieve in vitro fertilization of a human egg, and pioneered this subspecialty of medical and scientific practice.

The Future of Human Reproduction

Ethics, Choice, and Regulation

ISSUES IN BIOMEDICAL ETHICS General Editors: John Harris, University of Manchester; Soren Holm, University of Copenhagen. Consulting Editor: Ranaan Gillon, Director, Imperial College Health Service, London. North American Consulting Editor: Bonnie Steinbock, Professor of Philosophy, SUNY, Albany. The late twentieth century has witnessed dramatic technological developments in biomedical science and the delivery of health care, and these developments have brought with them important social changes. All too often ethical analysis has lagged behind these changes. The purpose of this series is to provide lively, up-to-date, and authoritative studies for the increasingly large and diverse readership concerned with issues in biomedical ethics--not just healthcare trainees and professionals, but also social scientists, philosophers, lawyers, social workers, and legislators. The series will feature both single-author and multi-author books, short and accessible enough to be widely read, each of them focused on an issue of outstanding current importance and interest. Philosophers, doctors, and lawyers from several countries already feature among the authors lined up for the series. It promises to become the leading channel for the best original work in this burgeoning field. this volume: The Future of Human Reproduction brings together new work, by an international group of contributors from various fields and perspectives, on ethical, social, and legal issues raised by recent advances in reproductive technology. These advances have put us in a position to choose what kinds of children and parents there should be; the aim of the essays is to illuminate how we should deal with these possibilities for choice. Topics discussed include gender and race selection, genetic engineering, fertility treatment, ovarian tissue transfer, and post-menopausal pregnancy. The central focus of the volume is the interface between reproductive choice and public regulation. 'The Future of Human Reproduction is a roadmap for twenty-first century reproductive technologies written by leading thinkers in the field for philosophers, policy makers, and clinicians. However, it will perhaps be equally useful for parents and other members of our most important social institutions, as we struggle to cope with the rapidly changing reproductive horizon.' Glenn McGee, University of Pennsylvania Center for Bioethics

Gottfried Dietrich Wilhelm Berthold (1854 - 1937); Ein Beitrag zur Geschichte der Biologie an der Georgia Augusta Göttingen

Der aus Westfalen stammende Gottfried Dietrich Wilhelm Berthold (1854- 1937) ist als Botaniker des 19. und beginnenden 20. Jahrhunderts eng mit der Geschichte der Georgia Augusta in Göttingen verwoben. Er hatte sich bereits als Student an der Universität Göttingen mit Algen beschäftigt und seine Dissertation dieser Thematik gewidmet. Nach Forschungsaufenthalten an der Zoologischen Station in Neapel, wo er intensiv Untersuchungen an Algen durchführte, habilitierte er sich 1881 in Göttingen bei Johannes Reinke. Später übernahm er dessen Professur für Botanik sowie dessen Direktorat am Pflanzenphysiologischen Institut und widmete sich entwicklungsmechanischen bzw. physiologischen Fragen bei höheren Pflanzen. Die vorliegende Monografie untersucht erstmalig anhand der gegenwärtigen Forschungslage Leben und Wirken Bertholds. Bertholds Lebensgeschichte wird chronologisch und in größtmöglicher Vollständigkeit dargestellt. Bildungsgeschichtliche Akzente, der personelle Konnex zu Johannes Reinke und der Einfluss der Zoologischen Station Neapel finden hier ebenso Platz wie die Rekonstruktion der Lehr- und Forschungstätigkeiten und der familiären Verhältnisse. Da Berthold vorrangig als Phykologe, also Algenkundler anzusehen ist, widmet sich der zweite Teil dem Forschungsschwerpunkt Algen. Dabei werden vor allem die meeresbiologischen Aspekte seiner Forschung am Golf von Neapel untersucht. Bertholds unterschiedliche Lebensstationen können in Zusammenhang mit seinen Publikationen betrachtet werden, dieser Teil untersucht daher das wissenschaftliche Wirken Bertholds. Anhand der aktuellen Quellenlage wird der Bestand seiner Werke aufgearbeitet und katalogisiert. Die vollständige Bibliografie ermöglicht die Bestimmung von Schwerpunkten in Bertholds wissenschaftlichen Untersuchungen. So bietet diese erste Monografie über Gottfried D.W. Berthold ein Fundament für die Beurteilung seines OEuvres und seiner Wirkung auf die Phykologie bzw. die Botanik. Sie ist eine angemessene Erinnerung an ihn und ermöglicht eine gebührende Würdigung seines Wirkens. Die vorliegende Studie ist ein Beitrag zur Universitäts- und Wissenschaftsgeschichte der Georgia Augusta.
