To investigate the effect of Plasticizer metabolites concentration on the in vitro fertilization outcomes


This study was conducted in a medical center in southern Taiwan. 80 infertile female patients, aged 30 to 40 years old with normal ovarian function, receiving IVF treatment in the infertility outpatient were enrolled in this study. The participates were divided into two groups: successful pregnancy in the IVF cycle (n = 40) and non-pregnancy in the IVF cycle (n = 40). After getting the consent of the patients, we plan to do a questionnaire survey. Additionally, environmental dust and urine were sampled and analyzed the concentration of plasticizers metabolites.The aim of this study is to investigate the effect of Plasticizer metabolites concentration on the in vitro fertilization outcomes.

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 continuous measurement of physiological processes, blood pressure, heart rate, renal output, reflexes, respiration, etc., in a patient or experimental animal; includes pharmacologic monitoring, the measurement of administered drugs or their metabolites in the blood, tissues, or urine.

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 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.
