Can highly sensitive antimullerian hormone testing predict failed response to ovarian stimulation

Tuesday, September 1, 2015
Using a cut point of 0.5 ng/mL, antimullerian hormone (AMH) performs well to identify patients at risk of failure of ovarian stimulation for in vitro fertilization. PicoAMH does not provide superior ability to predict failed response.
