The article reports on the result of a clinical study conducted by researchers in Korea and Canada which reveals that the maturation of human oocytes is optimal one hour after first polar body (PB) extrusion. Such findings indicate that human oocytes matured in vitro needed at least 1 hour incubation after the first PB extrusion to obtain good fertilization.
