Mild Versus Conventional Ovarian Stimulation Treatment for In Vitro Fertilization

2014-08-27 03:19:03 | BioPortfolio

Summary

In vitro fertilization (IVF) is an assisted reproductive technique to achieve pregnancy in subfertile couples of which the average success rate is only 25%. Mild ovarian stimulation treatment yields less oocytes, has less adverse effects but has a comparable clinical outcome compared to conventional stimulation treatment. There is high inter- and intra person variability in ovarian response and fertility outcome parameters after stimulation treatment and little is known about explanatory variables herefore.

Nutrition and in particular folate, or its synthetic derivative folic acid, is a B-vitamin which has been widely asssociated with reproductive outcome and subfertility. Therefore, in this study we aim to investigate the influence of preconception nutrition and folic acid use on ovarian response after mild/conventional stimulation treatment and to identify biomarkers in the follicular fluid which can indicate oocyte quality and other fertility outcomes.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A complication of OVULATION INDUCTION in infertility treatment. It is graded by the severity of symptoms which include OVARY enlargement, multiple OVARIAN FOLLICLES; OVARIAN CYSTS; ASCITES; and generalized EDEMA. The full-blown syndrome may lead to RENAL FAILURE, respiratory distress, and even DEATH. Increased capillary permeability is caused by the vasoactive substances, such as VASCULAR ENDOTHELIAL GROWTH FACTORS, secreted by the overly-stimulated OVARIES.

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.

Stimulation of the brain, which is self-administered. The stimulation may result in negative or positive reinforcement.

Application of electric current in treatment without the generation of perceptible heat. It includes electric stimulation of nerves or muscles, passage of current into the body, or use of interrupted current of low intensity to raise the threshold of the skin to pain.
