Reply: Endometrial TB-PCR positivity in women with unexplained infertility with no visible, microbiological or histopathological evidence of...
Inter- and intra-observer variability of time-lapse annotations.
How consistent is the time-lapse annotation of dynamic and static morphologic parameters of embryo development, within and between observers? The assessment of dynamic parameters is characterized by almost perfect agreement within and between observers. The commonly employed method used to assess em...
Post-menopausal endometriosis with inferior vena cava invasion requiring surgical management
Microarray assessment of methylation in individual mouse blastocyst stage embryos shows that in vitro culture may have widespread genomic ef...
We hypothesized that a microarray-based assessment of genomic methylation could be used to reveal differences between ART and normal preimplantation embryos. METHODS In this pilot study, we performed methylation-sensitive amplification of genomic DNA from preimplantation mouse blastocysts, obtained...
Sam68 mediates leptin-stimulated growth by modulating leptin receptor signaling in human trophoblastic JEG-3 cells.
We have recently found that leptin stimulation also promotes the overexpression and tyrosine phosphorylation of Sam68 in human trophoblastic JEG-3 cells, suggesting a role for Sam68 in leptin signaling and action in these cells. In the present work, we have studied the participation of Sam68 in the...
Crossing borders for fertility treatment: motivations, destinations and outcomes of UK fertility travellers.
BACKGROUND There are few systematic studies of the incidence of cross-border fertility care and even fewer reports of qualitative research with those undertaking treatment outside their country of origin. This paper reports findings from a qualitative study of UK residents with exper...
Quantitative trait analysis suggests polymorphisms of estrogen-related genes regulate human sperm concentrations and motility.
We tested the associations between variants of estrogen-related genes and semen parameters. METHODS We performed genotyping for genetic variants of estrogen-related genes and quantitative trait analysis of fertile and infertile men with well-characterized reproductive phenotypes. Men with known seme...
Prediction of early pregnancy maternal thyroid impairment in women affected with unexplained recurrent miscarriage.
We aimed to investigate the ratio between basal and peak thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) [following stimulus with thyrotrophin-releasing hormone (TRH)] in euthyroid women with unexplained recurrent miscarriage (RM). METHODS We have established a 'iTSHa index' (TSH increase after TRH adjusted for t...
ICSI outcome in women who have positive PCR result for hepatitis C virus.
We compared the three groups regarding the ovarian response to stimulation, embryo quality and pregnancy rates. RESULTS The number of failed cycles (lack of ovarian response to stimulation) was higher in HCV RT-PCR positive and sero-positive females than sero-negative controls (P = 0.0001). There we...
'Waiting for Godot': a commonsense approach to the medical treatment of endometriosis.
Conservative surgical treatment for symptomatic endometriosis is frequently associated with only partial relief of pelvic pain or its recurrence. Therefore, medical therapy constitutes an important alternative or complement to surgery. However, no available compound is cytoreductive,...
