Summary of "Poor ovarian response is associated with serum vitamin D levels and pro-inflammatory immune responses in women undergoing in-vitro fertilization."

Poor ovarian response (POR) limits the success of infertility treatment modality. In this study, we aim to investigate if POR is associated with serum 25(OH) vitamin D (VD) levels and pro-inflammatory immune responses in infertile women with a history of in-vitro fertilization and embryo transfer failures. A retrospective cross-sectional study included 157 women with IVF failures. Study patients were divided into four groups based on serum 25(OH)VD level and ovarian responses during the most recent IVF cycle; low VD (LVD) with POR, LVD with normal ovarian response (NOR), normal VD (NVD) with POR, and NVD with NOR. Serum 25(OH)VD level, cellular- and auto-immunity, and metabolic parameters, including homocysteine and plasminogen activator inhibitor-1 were investigated. Peripheral blood CD56 NK cell levels (%) and NK cytotoxicity were significantly higher in POR-LVD when compared to the other groups (P < 0.05, respectively). CD19 + B and CD19+/5+ B-1 cell levels were significantly higher in women with POR-LVD as compared with those of NOR-LVD and POR-NVD (P < 0.05, respectively). TNF-α/IL-10 producing Th1/Th2 cell ratio of POR-LVD was significantly higher than those of POR-NVD and NOR-NVD (P < 0.05 respectively). Peripheral blood homocysteine level of POR-LVD was significantly higher than those of NOR-LVD and POR-NVD (P < 0.05 respectively). We conclude that assessment of cellular and autoimmune abnormalities and metabolic factors, such as homocysteine should be considered in women with POR and LVD. VD and folic acid supplementation may be explored further as a possible therapeutic option for POR with immune and metabolic etiologies.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A cobalt-containing coordination compound produced by intestinal micro-organisms and found also in soil and water. Higher plants do not concentrate vitamin B 12 from the soil and so are a poor source of the substance as compared with animal tissues. INTRINSIC FACTOR is important for the assimilation of vitamin B 12.

A nutritional condition produced by a deficiency of VITAMIN A in the diet, characterized by NIGHT BLINDNESS and other ocular manifestations such as dryness of the conjunctiva and later of the cornea (XEROPHTHALMIA). Vitamin A deficiency is a very common problem worldwide, particularly in developing countries as a consequence of famine or shortages of vitamin A-rich foods. In the United States it is found among the urban poor, the elderly, alcoholics, and patients with malabsorption. (From Cecil Textbook of Medicine, 19th ed, p1179)

Cessation of ovarian function after MENARCHE but before the age of 40, without or with OVARIAN FOLLICLE depletion. It is characterized by the presence of OLIGOMENORRHEA or AMENORRHEA, elevated GONADOTROPINS, and low ESTRADIOL levels. It is a state of female HYPERGONADOTROPIC HYPOGONADISM. Etiologies include genetic defects, autoimmune processes, chemotherapy, radiation, and infections.

An inherited autosomal dominant trait characterized by abnormally elevated levels of total serum THYROXINE; (T4) in euthyroid patients with abnormal SERUM ALBUMIN that binds T4 with enhanced affinity. The serum levels of free T4, free T3, and TSH are normal. It is one of several T4 abnormalities produced by non-thyroid disorder. This condition is due to mutations of the ALB gene on CHROMOSOME 4.
