Optimal rhCG(Ovidrel®) Dose in Poor Responder During IVF and ICSI Cycles

2014-07-23 22:00:35 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Choriogonadotropin alfa (Ovidrel®) is a recombinant hCG (rhCG) preparation derived from genetically engineered Chinese hamster ovary cells, which is widely used for final oocyte maturation triggering in assisted reproductive technology (ART).Recombinant hCG has been investigated about its safety and efficacy comparing with urinary hCG, but still the optimal dose of rhCG is questionable. From former studies, there only have been proven that high dose of hCG can make ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS) in usual condition. On the other hand, we hypothesize that high dose of hCG may improve oocyte maturity in poor responders who cannot easily provoke OHSS. Hence, this study will assess the comparative efficacy and safety of 250mcg and 500mcg of rhCG in ART treatment cycle.

Description

Randomized prospective clinical study that compare the two doses of rhCG (250mcg vs. 500mcg).

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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 in vitro fusion of GENES by RECOMBINANT DNA techniques to analyze protein behavior or GENE EXPRESSION REGULATION, or to merge protein functions for specific medical or industrial uses.

The techniques used to select and/or place only one embryo from FERTILIZATION IN VITRO into the uterine cavity to establish a singleton pregnancy.

Methods used to induce premature oocytes, that are maintained in tissue culture, to progress through developmental stages including to a stage that is competent to undergo FERTILIZATION.
