28 JAN 2005 Follicular fluid FISH test started first time in the world by Dr. Firuza Parikh.
This test was started in April 2002 for the first time in the world by our Department. We have performed this on more than 1000 follicular fluid samples in women undergoing IVF/ICSI. We find this a very useful test to predict the possibility of miscarriage in women who have more than 5% mosaicism in the follicular fluid cells (cumulus cells). This test is useful for women with repeated failed IVF, repeated miscarriages, those with chromosomal problems and advanced maternal age.

At the time of egg retrieval during IVF, the cells, which surround the egg, are subjected to this genetic test. No extra injections are required to be taken by the women in order to perform this test.
