Genetic Disease Scare: IVF Eggs from Georgia

Israel’s Ministry of Health disclosed that fertilized eggs imported from a Georgian clinic called BIRTH carried the genetic disease Hemophilia B. Also known as Christmas disease, Hemophilia B is an inherited bleeding disorder due to a deficiency of blood clotting factor IX.

Serious Oversight: Embryo Transfer Despite Warning

Suspicions arose as it was believed that both the clinics in Georgia and Israel were aware of the genetic carriers yet proceeded with embryo transfer to Israeli patients. The Commissioner of Public Acceptance initiated an inspection committee, collaborating with the attorney’s office and Israel Police, to investigate the matter thoroughly.

Immediate Response: Suspension and Information Dissemination

In response, the Ministry of Health promptly suspended the import of eggs and fertilized eggs from the Georgian clinic. Additionally, all IVF unit managers in Israel were instructed to locate affected women and inform them of the risk associated with using these eggs, empowering them to make informed decisions regarding their fertility treatments.
