This category links to information about genetic abnormalities, their relationship to age, ethnicity and prenatal testing. In order to detect some genetic abnormalities many countries offer genetic screening programs both prenatal and neonatal. Some ethnic backgrounds have also been shown to have disease-associated genetic variants, though most common genetic diseases are consistent across ethnic boundaries. For example: Caucasians of northern European ancestry and cystic fibrosis (CTFR gene), Mediterranean, Asian and Far Eastern ancestry with beta-thalassaemia. Development of in vitro fertilization techniques now allows cells from early stage blastocysts to be removed and genetically analysed prior to implantation, raising some ethical issues relating to what parameters will be in future used in blastocyst selection.
