Second surgery for recurrent unilateral endometriomas and impact on ovarian reserve A case control study

Wednesday, April 29, 2015
Laparoscopic stripping of recurrent ovarian endometriomas decreases antimullerian hormone levels, increases basal FSH, and decreases the antral follicle count and volume of the operated ovary.

Role of ovarian reserve markers antimüllerian hormone and antral follicle count as aneuploidy markers in ongoing pregnancies and miscarriages

Wednesday, April 29, 2015
Antral follicle count appears to reflect the risk of autosomal trisomy better than maternal age. In contrast, antimullerian hormone does not deviate from the expected maternal age levels.

Does ovarian reserve predict egg quality in unstimulated therapeutic donor insemination cycles?

Wednesday, April 29, 2015
Antral follicle count is not predictive of pregnancy or miscarriage in patients undergoing unstimulated therapeutic donor insemination cycles for indications of an azoospermic male partner or the absence of a male partner.

Comparison of antimüllerian hormone levels and antral follicle count as predictor of ovarian response to controlled ovarian stimulation in good prognosis patients at individual fertility clinics in two multicenter trials

Monday, March 30, 2015
Antimullerian hormone was a stronger predictor of ovarian response to controlled ovarian stimulation than AFC in both GnRH agonist and antagonist cycles, also when data were evaluated at the study center level.

Prospective study into the value of the automated Elecsys antimüllerian hormone assay for the assessment of the ovarian growing follicle pool

Monday, March 30, 2015
An automated antimullerian hormone assay showed good correlations with age and antral follicle count and is a reproducible measure of the growing follicle pool.

Testing and interpreting measures of ovarian reserve A committee opinion

Friday, February 27, 2015

Authors:
Practice Committee of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine

Volume 103, Issue 3, Page e9

Abstract:

Currently there is no uniformly accepted definition of decreased ovarian reserve (DOR), as the term may refer to three related but distinctly different outcomes: oocyte quality, oocyte quantity, or reproductive potential.…

Modification of the Beckman Coulter second generation enzyme linked immunosorbent assay protocol improves the reliability of serum antimüllerian hormone measurement

Friday, January 30, 2015
The modified second-generation enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay protocol eliminates potential intrinsic and extrinsic interference and gives more reliable results on sample dilution and storage compared with the original second-generation protocol.

Ovarian morphology assessed by magnetic resonance imaging in women with and without polycystic ovary syndrome and associations to anti Müllerian hormone free testosterone and glucose disposal rate

Sunday, June 1, 2014
Magnetic resonance imaging yielded higher antral follicle counts (AFC) than previously reported. AFC, antimullerian hormone, and free testosterone discriminated with high accuracy between women with polycystic ovary syndrome and controls.

Antimullerian hormone and antral follicle count are lower in female cancer survivors and healthy women taking hormonal contraception

Thursday, May 15, 2014
Antimullerian hormone (AMH) and antral follicle count (AFC) are significantly lower among women with recent exposure to hormonal contraception. AMH and AFC should be interpreted cautiously when measured in the setting of recent hormone use.

Predictors of ovarian response in women treated with corifollitropin alfa for in vitro fertilization intracytoplasmic sperm injection

Wednesday, July 31, 2013
We discuss how antimullerian hormone level and antral follicle count are the best predictors for low and excessive responses in women treated with corifollitropin alfa in an antagonist protocol.

Prediction of an excessive response in in vitro fertilization from patient characteristics and ovarian reserve tests and comparison in subgroups An individual patient data meta analysis

Wednesday, July 31, 2013
This IPD meta-analysis demonstrates that AFC and AMH add value to age in predicting excessive response to ovarian hyperstimulation and that the accuracy of some ovarian reserve tests is affected by age.

Polymorphisms in gonadotropin and gonadotropin receptor genes as markers of ovarian reserve and response in in vitro fertilization

Monday, March 18, 2013
Some genetic polymorphisms are associated with ovarian response to gonadotropin administration and exhibit potential for a pharmacogenetic approach in ovarian stimulation. In contrast, ovarian reserve seems to be independent of gonadotropin variants.

A common Asn680Ser polymorphism in the follicle stimulating hormone receptor gene is not associated with ovarian response to gonadotrophin stimulation in patients undergoing IVF

Wednesday, January 2, 2013
No association was demonstrated between follicle-stimulating hormone receptor gene variants and ovarian response in women undergoing in vitro fertilization treatment, but clinically relevant differences cannot be ruled out.

Prediction of in vitro fertilization outcome at different antral follicle count thresholds in a prospective cohort of 1,012 women

Monday, June 18, 2012
While AFC and age are predictive of live birth following IVF treatment, AFC demonstrates a stronger positive correlation. This study illustrates post-test probabilities of live birth at individual AFC thresholds.
