Conclusion In COH cycles, the ultrasonographic appearance of ovary helps to predict the number of viable embryos. In ET cycles, dexamethasone obviously improves the pregnancy rate. If the minimum P4 value before endometrial transformation cannot be kept below 0.45 ng/ml, we may consider cycle cancellation. Moreover, it is suggested that BMI of nonclassic 21-OHD women is regulated below 23.36 kg/m2.

AbstractDown syndrome (DS) is the most common genetic disease at birth; on average, it affects 1 in 700 newborns. The syndrome features cognitive impairment, susceptibility to certain diseases, and (in some cases) congenital malformations. Improvements in medical care for people with DS have led to an increase in life expectancy. Furthermore, the systematic provision of specific support during childhood improves cognitive function and autonomy in adulthood. Consequently, patients and their families are now seeking the same rights as healthy people. Access to procreation is an emerging debate. The presumption of infertility...

At present, the precise role of human menopausal gonadotropin (HMG) and recombinant luteinizing hormone (rLH) supplementation at an early time of follicular phase on in vitro fertilization (IVF)/intra cytoplasmatic sperm injection (ICSI) outcomes remains uncertain. Here infertile women of normal ovarian function undergoing their first cycle of IVF/ICSI were studied and were randomly allocated into 3 groups. Group 1, ovarian stimulation with 150IU recombinant follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) alone. Group 2, patients received 75IU rFSH and 75IU HMG. Group 3 patients were given 150IU rFSH and 75IU rLH. There were no signi...

Hongmei Zhu, Sha Nan, Chuanguang Suo, Qiulin Zhang, Manli Hu, Rong Chen, Juan Wan, Meng Li, Jianguo Chen and Mingxing Ding* College of Veterinary Medicine, Huazhong Agricultural University, Wuhan, China Hypothalamic-pituitary-ovary (HPO) axis is a dominant system controlling ovulation during puberty. Electro-acupuncture (EA) has been widely used to cure the reproductive diseases associated with endocrinological disorders. However, whether EA treatment affects HPO axis activity of physiological animals and induces alterations on the hormones in the HPO axis was also unclear. Here, we performed the EA stimuli on bil...

This article aims to synthesize recent literature on reproductive health and healthcare of women Veterans. We updated a literature search to identify manuscripts published between 2008 and July 1, 2017. We excluded studies that were not original research, only included active-duty women, or had few women Veterans in their sample. Manuscripts were reviewed using a standardized abstraction form. We identified 52 manuscripts. Nearly half (48%) of the new manuscripts addressed contraception and preconception care (n = 15) or pregnancy (n = 10). The pregnancy and family planning literature showed tha...

Conclusions In conclusion, articles in this Research Topic made a very significant contribution to our understanding of the role played by environmental factors, dysbiotic conditions, and infections in triggering diseases. Since this is a rapidly expanding area of research, many other factors contributing to the onset of these diseases are not covered here. We are confident, however, that further studies will expand the list as well as bring a better understanding of mechanisms involved in the onset of autoimmune and autoinflammatory diseases. Author Contributions All authors listed have made a substantial, direct and i...

Conclusion We have identified a rich and complex sperm transcriptome with known and novel coding RNAs, lncRNAs and sncRNAs that resembles the human, mouse and cattle counterparts. Their roles are mainly related to the regulation of spermatogenesis, fertility and early embryo development. These spermatozoal transcripts are fragmented, likely in a selective manner, consistently affecting some genes more than others across samples. This suggests that their fragmentation is not stochastic and follows an unknown deterministic pattern with potential functional implications. Similarly, the variability of the transcript abundance...
