    Background: Two crucial biologic events in human fertilization are cytoplasmic maturation and nuclear maturation of the oocytes. A synchrony between the nucleus and the cytoplasm in the maturation process may reduce fertilization outcome. This article reviews the biologic importance and clinical...

    AIM: In this study, we have attempted to relate the antral follicle size on day 3 of downregulation to the in vitro fertilization (IVF) outcome and hence test its predictive value for IVF outcome. SETTINGS AND DESIGN: Teaching hospital, prospective double-blinded cohort study. The sonographer...

    Background: Intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) was initially developed as part of in vitro fertilization (IVF) to treat male-factor infertility. However, despite the added cost, uncertain efficacy, and potential risks of ICSI, its use has been extended to include some patients without...

    The maintenance of a gynodioecious breeding system (hermaphrodites and male-steriles) was studied in Plantago lanceolata. Cytoplasmic-nuclear inheritance is important in the maintenance of male-steriles. The male-sterile trait is cytoplasmically based (CMS), and male fertility can be restored by...
