Egg Freezing Pilot Study

2014-08-27 03:24:27 | BioPortfolio

Summary

University Reproductive Associates is conducting a pilot study to study the technique of egg freezing. Your participation in this study will provide us with important information to allow us to offer this technology for women wishing to freeze their eggs before cancer treatments. Your participation will include a standard IVF cycle with your eggs being frozen for a brief period of time and then transferred back to you as usual. You will receive a significant reduction in your IVF cycle cost.

Oocyte Cryopreservation: Slow Cooling Versus Vitrification Techniques on Oocyte Survival

Oocyte cryopreservation has been studied for many years without much success in refining a method that has consistent, reliable results in producing viable embryos and clinical pregnancies...

Embryo Developmental Capacity After Egg Banking in an Ovum Donation Program

For an efficient "egg banking" system, an equally efficient cryopreservation strategy that ensures the viability of the oocytes is required. Very recently, improved and new methods are yie...

Vitrification Versus Slow Cooling of Human Cleavage Stage Embryos

Human embryos can be preserved for later transfers by freezing. Traditionally the slow cooling method has been used. About 70% of the embryos remain fully intact after thawing. However, th...

Mitochondrial Activity of Cumulus Cells From the Cumulus-oocyte Complex and Oocyte Competence

The need for non-invasive biomarkers of oocyte competency has become urgent as women increasingly delay attempts at childbearing. The aging process is complex and includes impaired mitocho...

Artificial Shrinkage for Human Blastocyst Prior Vitrification

Investigators aim to investigate the effect of elimination of blastocoelic fluid by creating a large hole in the zona pellucida at the cellular junction of the trophectoderm cells located ...

Numerical and Experimental Investigation on Water-Me2SO Mixing in Microfluidic Device for Oocyte Cryopreservation.

Oocyte vitrification is a practical tool in assisted reproductive technology and fertility preservation. However, vitrification requires high concentration of cryoprotectants (CPAs), which may cause o...

A modified vitrification method reduces spindle and chromosome abnormalities.

Development of an effective system for oocyte-cryopreservation is of clinical relevance in reproductive medicine. However, oocyte-preservation is not as effective as embryo preservation. In this study...

Beneficial effects of glutathione supplementation during vitrification of mouse oocytes at the germinal vesicle stage on their preimplantation development following maturation and fertilization in vitro.

Oocyte cryopreservation is imperative for assisted reproductive technologies (ART). Although cryopreservation of oocytes at the Metaphase II has been widely used, immature oocytes at the germinal vesi...

Vitrification of human immature oocytes before and after in vitro maturation: a review.

The use of immature oocytes subjected to in vitro maturation (IVM) opens interesting perspectives for fertility preservation where ovarian reserves are damaged by pathologies or therapies, as in PCO/P...

What do Infertile Women Think about Oocyte Reception, Oocyte Donation, and Child Adoption?

Purpose The views of infertile couples regarding oocyte donation by third parties and adoption are unknown, as these may be interpreted as a final closure of the available options for conception. Th...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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

Minute cells produced during development of an OOCYTE as it undergoes MEIOSIS. A polar body contains one of the nuclei derived from the first or second meiotic CELL DIVISION. Polar bodies have practically no CYTOPLASM. They are eventually discarded by the oocyte. (from King & Stansfield, A Dictionary of Genetics, 4th ed)

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

The transformation of a liquid to a glassy solid i.e., without the formation of crystals during the cooling process.

An OOCYTE-containing structure in the cortex of the OVARY. The oocyte is enclosed by a layer of GRANULOSA CELLS providing a nourishing microenvironment (FOLLICULAR FLUID). The number and size of follicles vary depending on the age and reproductive state of the female. The growing follicles are divided into five stages: primary, secondary, tertiary, Graafian, and atretic. Follicular growth and steroidogenesis depend on the presence of GONADOTROPINS.
