The article discusses the study conducted in Great Britain suggesting that White European women have higher live birth rates following in vitro fertilization (IVF) or intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) than those achieved by ethnic groups. It notes that the study's objective was to evaluate the relationship between ethnicity of women and the clinical success of IVF or ICSI. It also notes the other two studies which found lower live birth rates in South Asian Indian women than white women.
