Predicting IVF fertilization rates

Posted by on Nov 1, 2020 in Infertility | 0 comments

In a nutshell This study created a model to predict how well eggs (oocytes) develop embryos during in vitro fertilization (IVF). It found that patients with lower doses of gonadotropin (GN) hormones had better fertilization rates (FR). It also found that patients with diminished ovarian reserve (DOR) could have a high FR. Some background The...

In a nutshell This study investigated if inhibin A (IHA) is associated with oocyte maturation (OM) during ovarian stimulation (OS). They found that IHA levels are associated with OM. Some background Infertility is an increasing problem worldwide. Assisted reproductive techniques (ART) are used to treat infertility. Controlled ovarian stimulation...
