Effectiveness of semen washing to prevent human immunodeficiency virus HIV transmission and assist pregnancy in HIV discordant couples A systematic review and meta analysis
Tuesday, March 1, 2016Semen washing appears to be effective and safe, significantly reducing the risk of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) transmission in HIV-discordant couples attempting to become pregnant by means of assisted reproduction.

Reflections on “Does the addition of time-lapse morphokinetics in the selection of embryos for transfer improve pregnancy rates?…
Tuesday, September 1, 2015Monochorionic twins after assisted reproductive technology (ART) are at increased risk of adverse perinatal outcomes compared with spontaneous monochorionic twins and with dichorionc twins conceived by ART.
Thursday, July 30, 2015No increase occurred in hypertension risk over the long term among infertile women or those who underwent fertility treatment.
Wednesday, April 29, 2015Interest in reproduction among women of advanced reproductive age remains at historic levels. Promoting postponed childbearing should be balanced by presentation of the associated perils of delay.
How do we explain the association between assisted reproductive technologies and perinatal morbidity
Monday, March 30, 2015Reflections on "Perinatal outcomes associated with assisted reproductive technology: the Massachusetts Outcomes Study of Assisted Reproductive Technologies (MOSART)" by Declercq et al.

Economic evaluation of elective single embryo transfer with subsequent single frozen embryo transfer in an in vitro fertilization intracytoplasmic sperm injection program
Friday, February 27, 2015The choice of elective single-embryo transfer strategy to be adopted should be determined by the context of the health system and the individual prognosis.
Fragmentation of human cleavage stage embryos is related to the progression through meiotic and mitotic cell cycles
Friday, January 30, 2015The appearance of the meiotic spindle and the durations of the first, second, and third mitoses are related to the degree of fragmentation of human embryos.
Monday, December 29, 2014The reproductive outcomes of oocyte donation from women cured of cancer are similar to those from women without previous cancer, regardless of cancer type.
Assessment of follicular fluid leptin levels and insulin resistance as outcome predictors in women undergoing in vitro fertilization intracytoplasmic sperm injection
Tuesday, November 25, 2014High follicular fluid leptin levels were associated with a lower probability of live birth in women undergoing in vitro fertilization–intracytoplasmic sperm injection. Serum progesterone, follicle number, and leptin levels seem to predict IVF outcome.
Wednesday, July 30, 2014In a large sample, no increased rate of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) associated genetic events in ASD subjects conceived by assisted reproduction compared to ASD subjects conceived without assisted reproduction.
Blastulation rates decline in a linear fashion from euploid to aneuploid embryos with single versus multiple chromosomal errors
Wednesday, July 30, 2014Euploid embryos are far more likely than aneuploid embryos to progress to the blastocyst stage with a linear decrease in probability of blastulation with increasing number of chromosomal abnormalities.
Is subfertility or fertility treatment associated with long term growth in the offspring A cohort study
Friday, June 27, 2014Compared with children born to fertile parents, no systematic differences were observed for body weight, height, body mass index, or head circumference at age 5 in children conceived after fertility treatment or in children born to subfertile parents.
Cryopreservation and delayed embryo transfer Assisted reproductive technology registry and reporting implications
Wednesday, June 25, 2014Some assisted reproductive technology cycles designated as “embryo banking” have been excluded from public reports. The Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have collaborated to recapture these cycles.
Thursday, June 12, 2014Obstetric and perinatal outcomes from singleton and multiple pregnancies obtained using vitrified oocytes revealed lack of clinically relevant differences when compared with those achieved with fresh oocytes.
Friday, May 23, 2014Although short-term health effects of donation have been well studied, many unanswered questions remain about the long-term medical and psychological consequences for women who donate eggs.
Single embryo transfer of vitrified warmed blastocysts yields equivalent live birth rates and improved neonatal outcomes compared with fresh transfers
Wednesday, April 30, 2014After 1,157 fresh and 645 vitrified-warmed day-5 single-blastocyst transfers, we found vitrified warmed blastocysts yielded equivalent birth rates and improved neonatal outcomes compared with fresh transfers.
Wednesday, April 30, 2014This Views and Reviews explores the many outcomes of clinical trials in infertility that are of interest to clinicians, patients, and public health. It advocates for better tracking of outcomes.
Comparison of complication rates and pain scores after transvaginal ultrasound guided oocyte pickup procedures for in vitro maturation and in vitro fertilization cycles
Thursday, February 20, 2014Complication types and rates seem similar after transvaginal ultrasound–guided oocyte collection in in vitro maturation and conventionally stimulated in vitro fertilization cycles.
Friday, January 31, 2014The ethical conduct of human gamete and embryo research is contingent upon conscientious application of principles of informed consent with respect to gamete and embryo donors. Relevant ethical issues are developed herein.
