    Aim: We assessed the effectiveness of assisted hatching using a 1.48-µm diode laser in human embryos, comparing zona opening and zona thinning techniques. Methods: A total of 56 day 3 embryos were assigned randomly to a zona opening group, a zona thinning group, or a control group. We...

    The aim of this study was to retrospectively audit eight years' experience of an IVF surrogate gestational programme and to compare the outcome of surrogacy due lo absence of the uterus with surrogacy indicated for repeated IVF failure and recurrent abortions. A total of 60 cycles of IVF...

    Single embryo transfer is becoming increasingly popular in IVF/ICSI. More IVF/ICSI cycles therefore include freezing of high quality embryos, and the cumulative effect of such cycles becomes more important. To improve the results obtained using frozen thawed embryos, the predictive value of...

    Two very common single nucleotide polymorphisms at positions 307 and 680 in exon 10 of the FSH receptor gene have been associated with ovarian response in IVF. This observational study evaluated the role of the FSH receptor genotype in the prediction of poor response and clinical pregnancy in...

    Low rates of implantation are an impediment to more efficient assisted reproduction techniques. Improved endometrial receptivity and embryo preparation should lead to higher pregnancy rates, lower rates of early pregnancy failure and fewer multiple pregnancies. As the first site of contact...

    Implantation processes are highly complex involving the actions of numerous hormones, immunoglobulins, cytokines and other factors in the endometrium. They are also essential matters for the success of assisted reproduction. The nature of early embryonic development is of equal significance. It...

    Randomized control trials have shown that single embryo transfer (SET) results in lower live birth rates than double embryo transfer (DET), while observational, retrospective studies find no decrease in overall live birth rate when using a SET policy. The cumulative (fresh transfer followed by...

    Purpose: To evaluate the effect on the coculture of murine embryos with a human ovarian granulosa tumor derived cell line (KGN cells). Methods: We observed microscopically the growth of murine preimplantation embryos in the coculture system with KGN cells or in the presence with exogenous stem...
