euploidy

 [u´ploi-de]
the state of being euploid.

eu·ploi·dy

(yū-ploy'dē),
The state of a cell containing whole haploid sets.
[eu- + G. -ploos, -fold]

euploidy

Genetics The presence, in a particular organism of a normal complement of chromosomes which, in humans, is 2n, where n is the haploid number

eu·ploi·dy

(yū-ploy'dē)
The state of a cell containing whole haploid sets.

euploidy

the condition of a cell, tissue or organism that has one or more multiples of a chromosome set, for example, a TRIPLOID (3n). Euploids with more than two sets of chromosomes are POLYPLOIDS.

Linear regression analysis was performed to assess the effect of cohort size on euploidy rate adjusted for the effect of female age Lehert et al., Comparison of number 3 2010 of retrieved oocytes (primary endpoint) between two modalities of gonadotropin treatment, using the random effects model.
In fact, according to the results of our study, both the aneuploidy and euploidy rates do not vary according to ovarian response, whereas the number of euploid and aneuploid embryos increases in the same way as number of oocytes does.

"If, in a woman less than 36, there is evidence of recurrent euploidy, that's not an indication for preimplantation genetic diagnosis.
A statistically significant change (e.g., using z-score statistics) in the number of reads mapped to a chromosome of interest (such as chromosome 21) is used to identify fetal an euploidy. The accuracy of the test is largely dependent on 2 factors: the variability (SD) of the percentage of reads mapped to the chromosome of interest among euploidy samples and the absolute difference between the sample being tested and the mean of the euploidy samples.

What remains unknown, however, is what portion of the discordancy between NIPT and fetal results is attributable to the demarcation between euploidy and aneuploidy established by the statistical algorithms, and how much is due to biologic explanations uncovered by the greater sensitivity of MPS.
Aneuploidy embryos are more likely to be blocked on day 3 than the euploidy ones.
