    Introduction: Cryopreservation is a useful method for preservation of ovarian tissue of patients who are candidate for chemo and radiotherapy. It has been postulated that MMP-2 participates in the process of remodeling of ovarian extracellular matrix such as the follicle growth and ovulation....
