The purpose of this study is to determine the performance of a genetic assay, GemART, in cumulus cells predictive of embryo viability, and pregnancy success in women undergoing in vitro fertilization (IVF). Performance is defined as success rate per embryo transferred, as measured by the implantation rate of embryos transferred.

We will investigate potential correlation between SpermComet DNA fragmentation assay results and IVF cycle outcome.
Infertility affects about 10% of all couples and is defined by a failure to achieve a clinical pregnancy within a year of regular unprotected sexual intercourse. Up to one third of these c...
The purpose of this study is to record and evaluate the use of traditional morphology grading combined with Eeva in the treatment of in vitro fertilization.
The (motile sperm organelle morphology examination) MSOME allows the detection of sperm vacuoles that seems to be related to sperm DNA damage. The investigators hypothesized that couples ...
The DxN Cytomegalovirus (CMV) assay is an in vitro diagnostic assay intended as an aid in the management of CMV-infected individuals undergoing antiviral therapy. the purpose of the study ...
Male factor is responsible for 40-50% of infertility cases, contributing equally as a female factor. Oxidative stress has now emerged as one of the major causes of unexplained male infertility, as it ...
About 15% of women aged 15-44 in the US experience infertility. Factors associated with infertility and fertility treatments may also be associated with lactation difficulties. Limited data exist exam...
Evaluating patients for infertility is common in the primary care setting and can involve multiple differentials and treatment options. This case report describes a 34-year-old woman whose infertility...
Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) is increasingly associated with extra-digestive diseases. Infertility is a common condition, with an incidence of 10 to 15% of couples. Studies examining the associatio...
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. (From Infertility and Reproductive Medicine Clinics of North America, Foreword 1990; Journal of Reproduction and Fertility, Notice to Contributors, Jan 1979)
Inability to reproduce after a specified period of unprotected intercourse. Reproductive sterility is permanent infertility.
A screening assay for circulating COMPLEMENT PROTEINS. Diluted SERUM samples are added to antibody-coated ERYTHROCYTES and the percentage of cell lysis is measured. The values are expressed by the so called CH50, in HEMOLYTIC COMPLEMENT units per milliliter, which is the dilution of serum required to lyse 50 percent of the erythrocytes in the assay.
Sensitive assay using radiolabeled ANTIGENS to detect specific ANTIBODIES in SERUM. The antigens are allowed to react with the serum and then precipitated using a special reagent such as PROTEIN A sepharose beads. The bound radiolabeled immunoprecipitate is then commonly analyzed by gel electrophoresis. Radioimmunoprecipitation assay (RIPA) is often used as a confirmatory test for diagnosing the presence of HIV ANTIBODIES.
The inability of the male to effect FERTILIZATION of an OVUM after a specified period of unprotected intercourse. Male sterility is permanent infertility.
An assay is an analytic procedure for qualitatively assessing or quantitatively measuring the presence or amount or the functional activity of a target entity. This can be a drug or biochemical substance or a cell in an organism or organic sample. ...
