Egg Freezing Pilot Study

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


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 Vitrification Aided With Latrunculin A

Using cytoskeleton Stabilizer the Latrunculin A would improve the outcome of oocyte vitrification

Oocyte Vitrification Aided With Cytochalasin B

Using the cytoskeleton Stabilizer the Cytochalasin B would improve the outcome of oocyte vitrification.

Interest of Automated Oocyte Freezing

In the space of a few decades, oocyte cryopreservation has become established in the world of reproductive biology with the authorization of oocyte vitrification. This ultra-fast manual fr...

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...

Establishment of an improved vitrification protocol by combinations of vitrification medium for isolated mouse ovarian follicles.

In vitro follicle growth (IVFG) is an emerging alternative option for fertility preservation in women instead of ovarian tissue cryopreservation and transplantation. To widen the application of this ...

Human cumulus cell sensitivity to vitrification, an ultrastructural study.

SummaryCumulus cells (CCs) play an important role in the regulation of female gamete development, meiotic maturation, oocyte-sperm interaction, capacitation and acrosome reaction. However, their role ...

Oocyte retrieval after heterotopic transplantation of ovarian tissue cryopreserved by closed vitrification protocol.

A device for closed vitrification was designed to reduce the risk of contamination and investigated on its efficacy for ovarian function recovery after cryopreservation and heterotopic transplantation...

Blocking connexin channels during vitrification of immature cat oocytes improves maturation capacity after warming.

In the domestic cat, nuclear maturation and embryo development after vitrification of immature oocytes have been obtained but developmental competence after warming remains low. It has been reported t...

Shedding light on the fertility preservation debate in women with endometriosis: a swot analysis.

Endometriosis, a hormone-dependant condition affecting around 10% of women in their reproductive years, has frequent consequences on fertility. Indeed, a proportion of women will require assisted repr...

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.
