Assisted Reproductive Technologies (ART) is increasingly used to help infertile couples to have children around the world. A number of studies have been published reporting an increased risk of major malformations in children born following ART, especially an increased incidence of epigenetic diseases (ED). This study aimed to assess the incidence of epigenetic diseases with affected imprinting genes in infants or children from pregnancies obtained through IVF/ICSI compared to infants or children from pregnancies obtained spontaneously.
This article was published in the following journal.

In vitro fertilization (IVF) has been linked to an increased risk for imprinting disorders in offspring. The data so far have predominantly been retrospective, comparing the rate of IVF conceptions i...
Recent legislation extended coverage for assisted reproductive technologies (ART) to male veterans within the United States Veterans Affairs (VA) healthcare system. We sought to characterize the appro...
to assess the postnatal persistence of fetal cardiovascular remodeling associated to assisted reproductive technologies (ART), in children at 3 years of age.
Low birth rates and infertility are growing concerns for many countries. The Artificial Reproduction Act (ARA) was implemented in 2007 to better support the use of assisted reproductive technology (AR...
This secondary analysis aimed to identify the incidence and risk factors associated with monozygotic twins (MZTs) after assisted reproductive technology (ART).
Genomic imprinting, referring to an epigenetic marking resulting in monoallelic gene expression, plays a critical role in development. Recently, various imprinting diseases were reported i...
This is a prospective comparative randomized controlled trial investigating the effect of two GnRH agonist trigger protocols on the ongoing pregnancy rate in hyper-responder women undergoi...
The purpose of the study is to collate local information to better understand the motivations, accessibility and frequency of assisted reproductive technology (ART) use in the community.
Preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) is the integration of both assisted reproductive technologies and molecular genetic technologies and was shown to improve implantation rate and redu...
Ther purpose of this study is to show equivalence with regard to the number of oocytes retrieved between AFOLIA and Gonal-f® in women for assisted reproductive treatment
A medical-surgical specialty concerned with the morphology, physiology, biochemistry, and pathology of reproduction in man and other animals, and on the biological, medical, and veterinary problems of fertility and lactation. It includes ovulation induction, diagnosis of infertility and recurrent pregnancy loss, and assisted reproductive technologies such as embryo transfer, in vitro fertilization, and intrafallopian transfer of zygotes.

Methods pertaining to the generation of new individuals, including techniques used in selective BREEDING, cloning (CLONING, ORGANISM), and assisted reproduction (REPRODUCTIVE TECHNIQUES, ASSISTED).
Computer-assisted study of methods for obtaining useful quantitative solutions to problems that have been expressed mathematically.
Results of conception and ensuing pregnancy, including LIVE BIRTH; STILLBIRTH; SPONTANEOUS ABORTION; INDUCED ABORTION. The outcome may follow natural or artificial insemination or any of the various ASSISTED REPRODUCTIVE TECHNIQUES, such as EMBRYO TRANSFER or FERTILIZATION IN VITRO.
A technique in assisted reproduction (REPRODUCTIVE TECHNIQUES, ASSISTED) consisting of hormonal stimulation of the ovaries, follicular aspiration of preovulatory oocytes, in-vitro fertilization, and intrafallopian transfer of zygotes at the pronuclear stage (before cleavage).
Congenital conditions are those which are present from birth. They include structural deformities or loss of function in organs such as the <!--LGfEGNT2Lhm-->heart, gut or skeletal system. They can be corrected by <!--LGfEGNT2Lhm-->surgery, m...
Standard antiretroviral therapy (ART) consists of the combination of at least three antiretroviral (ARV) drugs to maximally suppress the HIV virus and stop the progression of HIV disease. Huge reductions have been seen in rates of death and suffering whe...
Pediatrics is the general medicine of childhood. Because of the developmental processes (psychological and physical) of childhood, the involvement of parents, and the social management of conditions at home and at school, pediatrics is a specialty. With ...
