In vitro development of donated frozen thawed human embryos in a prototype static microfluidic device A randomized controlled trial
Friday, February 27, 2015This study shows that a microfluidic device tested under static conditions supports single-embryo culture of donated frozen-thawed human day-4 embryos to advanced blastocyst stages.
Live birth in a 50 year old woman following in vitro fertilization embryo transfer with autologous oocytes A rare case report
Friday, January 30, 2015A 50-year-old woman conceived with her own oocytes by means of in vitro fertilization and successfully delivered a healthy male baby by cesarean section.
Effect of male and female body mass index on pregnancy and live birth success after in vitro fertilization
Friday, January 30, 2015No association between male and female BMI, individually or combined, and IVF success was found after accounting for important confounding factors, including male and female age, partner BMI, and parity.

Friday, January 30, 2015Reflections on "The Great Recession, insurance mandates, and the utilization of in vitro fertilization services in the United States" by Kiatpongsan et al.
Metaanalysis of estradiol for luteal phase support in in vitro fertilization intracytoplasmic sperm injection
Friday, January 30, 2015This meta-analysis suggests that estradiol addition during the luteal phase does not improve in vitro fertilization/intracytoplasmic sperm injection outcomes through oral medication, even with different daily doses.
The Great Recession insurance mandates and the use of in vitro fertilization services in the United States
Friday, January 30, 2015There is a positive relationship between the economy and in vitro fertilization use in the United States, and this relationship is significantly stronger in states with insurance mandates.
Intrafollicular cortisol levels inversely correlate with cumulus cell lipid content as a possible energy source during oocyte meiotic resumption in women undergoing ovarian stimulation for in vitro fertilization
Monday, December 29, 2014We discuss how follicular fluid cortisol levels may regulate cumulus cell lipolysis during oocyte meiotic resumption and affect oocyte quality during in vitro fertilization.
Prolonging oocyte in vitro culture and handling time does not compensate for a shorter interval from human chorionic gonadotropin administration to oocyte pickup
Monday, December 29, 2014Delaying oocyte denudation or injection does not compensate for a suboptimal in vivo exposure to the follicular environment.
Progesterone elevation on the day of human chorionic gonadotropin administration is not the only factor determining outcomes of in vitro fertilization
Monday, December 29, 2014The elevated progesterone on the day of human chorionic gonadotropin triggering has an obvious negative impact on pregnancy outcome only at extremely high progesterone concentrations.
