Presents the results of a study which investigated a possible relationship between treatment variables and oocyte nuclear maturity in an effort to understand the mechanism underlying the improved pregnancy rate observed in in vitro fertilization (IVF) cycles when gonadotropin-release hormone analogues (GnRH-a) are applied. How nuclear maturity was assessed; Methods used in the study; Discussion of the findings.

    A complete failure of meiotic maturation occasionally occurs following human chorionic gonadotrophin administration during IVF-intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) cycles. ICSI on day 1 is commonly used to allow maturation in culture. However, if the oocytes become mature in the evening soon...

    Natural cycle IVF, without the use of LH down-regulation, is difficult because women start spontaneous LH surges at any time of the day and on any day of the week. This is not readily compatible with delivery of a routine IVF service and so historically the natural cycle has been modified by the...

    Maturation medium for in-vitro maturation (IVM) is usually supplemented with serum. The objective of this study was to investigate whether serum from pregnant women had any adverse effects on IVM, and if so, whether the hormonal changes in pregnancy played a role. Serum was obtained from 40...

    Background The implantation process after embryo transfer depends on the embryo quality and endometrial receptivity. It is estimated that fifty to seventy-five per cent of pregnancies are lost due to a failure of implantation. There is evidence that there is an early secretion of human chorionic...
