Bioactivity of ovulation inducing factor (or nerve growth factor) in bovine seminal plasma and its effects on ovarian function in cattle.

To understand the role of ovulation-inducing factor (or nerve growth factor) (OIF [NGF]) in bovine seminal plasma, we (1) used an in vivo llama bioassay to test the hypothesis that bovine seminal pla...

Development and validation of LC-MS/MS method for quantification of bisphenol A and estrogens in human plasma and seminal fluid.

Bisphenol A (BPA) is a widely known endocrine disruptor with estrogenic, antiestrogenic or antiandrogenic properties. BPA could interfere with estrogen metabolism as well with receptor-mediated estrog...

Artificial oocyte activation in intracytoplasmic sperm injection cycles using testicular sperm in human in vitro fertilization.

Artificial oocyte activation (AOA) is an effective method to avoid total fertilization failure in human in vitro fertilization-embryo transfer (IVF-ET) cycles. AOA performed using a calcium ionophore ...

Proteomic analysis of white and yellow seminal plasma in turkeys ().

Yellow semen syndrome (YSS) is endemic within domestic turkey populations. Yellow semen is of lower quality and, when used for insemination, results in reduced fertility and hatchability. Little is kn...

Discrimination of human semen specimens by NMR data, sperm parameters, and statistical analysis.

Human seminal fluid is a complex mixture of secretions originated from epididymis and the male accessory sex glands. It contains a variety of both inorganic and organic components, among which protein...

Clinical Trials [3368 Associated Clinical Trials listed on BioPortfolio]

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.
