The role of seminal plasma for improved outcomes during in vitro fertilization treatment: review of the literature and meta-analysis.

There is a growing body of evidence surrounding the role played by seminal plasma in human implantation. Seminal fluid contains several proteins that interact with cervical and uterine epithelial cell...

Evolutionary medicine: Semen sampling and seminal plasma hypersensitivity.

Evidence suggests that each male may have a unique semen signature, and there are reasons to consider the possibility that semen sampling (i.e., being inseminated by different prospective mates during...

Investigation of Galectin-3 Function in the Reproductive Tract by Identification of Binding Ligands in Human Seminal Plasma.

Galectin-3 is a β-galactoside binding protein with immunomodulatory properties and exerts its extracellular functions via interactions with glycoconjugate ligands. Therefore, to elucidate the functio...

Characterization of carp seminal plasma proteome in relation to blood plasma.

The present study for the first time characterizes a diverse cohort of carp seminal and blood plasma proteins using the combination of protein fractionation by one-dimensional gel electrophoresis and ...

Androgens for Poor Responders in In Vitro Fertilization

it has been shown that androgens in non human primates may favour follicular growth in the ovaries when animals are treated with gonadotropins which are the hormones used in patients recei...

In Vitro Maturation With in Vitro Fertilization (IVF) Compared to Mild in Vitro Fertilization

Methods of infertility treatment may involve in vitro fertilization or IVF. Though effective, IVF is complex and expensive. Methods using no gonadotropin hormone stimulation of the ovaries...

Effect of Seminal Fluid on the Colon Wall; Implications for HIV Transmission

This research is being done to learn how seminal fluid affects the lining of the colon, and whether this might make it easier for HIV to get into the body and cause infection.

Evaluation of the Luteolytic Effect of a Gonadotropin Releasing Hormone (GnRH) Agonist After the Administration of Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (hCG) in the Initial Follicular Phase a Its Influence on the Prognosis of in Vitro Fertilization Treatment

This study was designed to evaluate the ability of gonadotropin releasing hormone (GnRh) agonist to prevent the rise of progesterone during controlled ovarian stimulation for in vitro fert...

Oocyte Cryopreservation: Evaluation of an Oocyte Freezing and Thawing Technique

Over the past several decades, considerable effort has been expended toward the successful cryopreservation of various human cells. While attempts at cryopreservation have been directed ...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Proteins found in SEMEN. Major seminal plasma proteins are secretory proteins from the male sex accessory glands, such as the SEMINAL VESICLES and the PROSTATE. They include the seminal vesicle-specific antigen, an ejaculate clotting protein; and the PROSTATE-SPECIFIC ANTIGEN, a protease and an esterase.

An assisted reproductive technique that includes the direct handling and manipulation of oocytes and sperm to achieve fertilization in vitro.

The transfer of mammalian embryos from an in vivo or in vitro environment to a suitable host to improve pregnancy or gestational outcome in human or animal. In human fertility treatment programs, preimplantation embryos ranging from the 4-cell stage to the blastocyst stage are transferred to the uterine cavity between 3-5 days after FERTILIZATION IN VITRO.

The secretory proteins of the seminal vesicles are proteins and enzymes that are important in the rapid clotting of the ejaculate. The major clotting protein is seminal vesicle-specific antigen. Many of these seminal vesicle proteins are under androgen regulation, and are substrates for the prostatic enzymes, such as the PROSTATE-SPECIFIC ANTIGEN, a protease and an esterase.

Experimentation on, or using the organs or tissues from, a human or other mammalian conceptus during the prenatal stage of development that is characterized by rapid morphological changes and the differentiation of basic structures. In humans, this includes the period from the time of fertilization to the end of the eighth week after fertilization.
