Group proceeding brought on behalf of persons who were provided with cell-free non-invasive pre-implantation testing (nIPT-A testing) on their live embryos between May 2019 and October 2020 and suffered financial loss and psychiatric injury as a result.
The claim alleges that patients were provided the service of niPGT-A testing of their live embryos. Some patients had their embryos classified as abnormal and unsuitable for transfer as a result of this testing. The claim alleges that niPGT-A testing should not have been conducted because there was a substantial risk, not disclosed to patients, that it might produce false positive results and therefore an erroneous determination that an embryo was not suitable for transfer.
