A Non-interventional Study to Identify the Patients With Severe Luteinizing Hormone Deficiency in the Daily Practice

2014-08-27 03:14:06 | BioPortfolio

Summary

This non-interventional study is planned to identify the subjects with severe luteinizing hormone (LH) deficiency in the daily practice. The results will be used for the "Periodic Safety Update Report", which is to be regularly sent to the European Medicines Agency (EMEA) and the responsible German Higher Federal Authority (BfArM).

Description

Female subjects with distinctive follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) and LH deficiency require both FSH and LH. Until now these subjects were treated either with a combination of two recombinant preparations (r-hFSH and r-hLH) or else with a menotropin preparation, composed of urinary human FSH (u-hFSH) and human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) as LH-replacement.

In Pergoveris™ for the first time both hormones FSH and LH are available as recombinant produced hormones in a combination preparation.

Pergoveris has both hormones i.e. FSH and LH available as recombinant produced hormones in a combination preparation in the ratio 2:1. This study is planned to record data for the stimulation not only in case of the ovarian stimulation with intercourse for the optimum (VZO) but also the intrauterine insemination (IUI) and the ovarian stimulation for the assisted reproduction [in-vitro fertilisation (IVF) and intracytoplasmatic sperm injection (ICSI)] in subjects with severe FSH and LH deficiency and learn more about this subject group and the applied stimulation plan.

Apart from the demographic data, anamnestic details e.g. reason for the infertility, duration of the unfulfilled wish for children, past medical treatment for conception and accompanying illnesses will be documented. The duration of the stimulation with Pergoveris as well as the dose per day will be recorded from the cycle documentations. Follicle sizes and hormones will be documented in accordance with the respectively carried out cycle monitoring. The result of the treatment is related to the number of cycles with ovulation stimulation using hCG, the number of the cycles with puncture, the number of the cycles with embryo transfer, the number and quality of the ova and embryos, on occurred pregnancies and documented abortions. Multiple pregnancies and births will also be recorded.

OBJECTIVES

- To find the reason for the diagnosis of the severe LH deficiency such as e.g. low endogenous LH, amenorrhea, low endometrial thickness or low estradiol level.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Inability to reproduce after a specified period of unprotected intercourse. Reproductive sterility is permanent infertility.

The inability of the male to effect FERTILIZATION of an OVUM after a specified period of unprotected intercourse. Male sterility is permanent infertility.

An assisted fertilization technique consisting of the microinjection of a single viable sperm into an extracted ovum. It is used principally to overcome low sperm count, low sperm motility, inability of sperm to penetrate the egg, or other conditions related to male infertility (INFERTILITY, MALE).

A form of male HYPOGONADISM, characterized by the presence of an extra X CHROMOSOME, small TESTES, seminiferous tubule dysgenesis, elevated levels of GONADOTROPINS, low serum TESTOSTERONE, underdeveloped secondary sex characteristics, and male infertility (INFERTILITY, MALE). Patients tend to have long legs and a slim, tall stature. GYNECOMASTIA is present in many of the patients. The classic form has the karyotype 47,XXY. Several karyotype variants include 48,XXYY; 48,XXXY; 49,XXXXY, and mosaic patterns ( 46,XY/47,XXY; 47,XXY/48,XXXY, etc.).

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.
