Compared with fresh embryo transfers, vitrified day 3 embryo transfer shows no significant differences in obstetrical and neonatal outcomes. Vitrification is a safe method for the cryopreservation of human day 3 embryos.
Birth defects in children conceived by in vitro fertilization and intracytoplasmic sperm injection: a meta-analysis
Children conceived by IVF and/or ICSI are at significantly increased risk for birth defects, and there is no risk difference between IVF children and ICSI children.
A cross-sectional survey of 194 previous oocyte donors performed by a standardized telephone questionnaire shows that oocyte donation does not affect donors' short-term reproductive health.
Serum progesterone level effects on the outcome of in vitro fertilization in patients with different ovarian response: an analysis of more than 10,000 cycles
Elevated serum P levels are associated with reduced ongoing pregnancy rates regardless of different ovarian responses. Increased P threshold concentration is associated with better ovarian responses.
Dual trigger of oocyte maturation with gonadotropin-releasing hormone agonist and low-dose human chorionic gonadotropin to optimize live birth rates in high responders
Dual trigger with GnRH agonist and low-dose hCG in high responders with peak E2 levels
Fluorescent Pisum sativum agglutinin rapidly labels and stabilizes the acrosomal matrix when exocytic fusion pores open in live human sperm, as assessed by confocal microscopy, electron microscopy, and flow cytometry.
This document provides the latest recommendations for the use of a gestational carrier, including indications for this technique and the evaluation of carriers and intended parents.
The author discusses the challenges in programming GnRH antagonist cycles.
Based on published studies, especially animal, the author discusses the evidence for infertile men to consider stopping the use of finasteride.
The authors discuss the risks and prevention of peritoneal adhesions, and the relationship between adhesions and peritoneal fluid to endometriosis found in the literature.
Adverse perinatal outcome and in vitro fertilization singleton pregnancies: what lies beneath? Further evidence to support an underlying role of the modifiable hormonal milieu in in vitro fertilization stimulation
The author discusses the need to identify methods to minimize risk in IVF conceptions.
Development and validation of a three-dimensional in vitro model for uterine leiomyoma and patient-matched myometrium
Immortalized leiomyoma and myometrial cells grown in a three-dimensional format maintain the molecular phenotype of the progenitor tissues and create extracellular matrix.
Technologies related to automation, such as nonsubjective sperm selection, oocyte fertilization, and embryo culture and monitoring, are available, and this means that sample preparation, chemical or biologic reactions, and data collection could be integrated.
We describe uterus transplantation research conducted in the animal model and explore its introduction in the human model.
This review summarizes state-of-the-art of ovarian transplantation and cryopreservation, and the limits and future prospects of these new techniques.
We summarize the recent advances in the human germline development from pluripotent stem cells and discuss the proposed strategies to develop disease models of infertility using human ESC/iPSC.
