Novel Microbes Associated With Pelvic Inflammatory Disease, InfertilityNovel Microbes Associated With Pelvic Inflammatory Disease, Infertility

Four novel microbial species seen in bacterial vaginosis (BV) are also associated with pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) and infertility, suggesting that optimal treatment for PID needs to target these microbes, too, U.S. researchers say. Reuters Health Information

Publication date: November 2018Source: Biomedicine &Pharmacotherapy, Volume 107Author(s): An Wei, Hao Feng, Xiao-Min Jia, Hua Tang, Yang-Ying Liao, Bi-Rong LiAbstractAs a common cause of infertility, pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) is characterized by chronic pain, ectopic pregnancy as well as inflammation and infection of the female upper genital tract. Ozone water, also known as O3, has been previously reported to be a distinctly effective agent in treating inflammation. During the present study, we asserted the hypothesis that O3 could be applied by pelvic inflammation and works to regulate the expression of infla...

AbstractRecent publicized events of cryogenic storage tank failures have created nationwide concern among infertility patients and patients storing embryos and gametes for future use. To assure patient confidence, quality management (QM) plans applied by in vitro fertilization (IVF) laboratories need to include a more comprehensive focus on the cryostorage of reproductive specimens. The purpose of this review is to provide best practice guidelines for the cryogenic storage of sperm, oocytes, embryos, and other reproductive tissues (e.g., testicular and ovarian tissue, cord blood cells, and stem cells) and recommend a strat...

AbstractThe production of functional spermatozoa through spermatogenesis requires a spatially and temporally highly regulated gene expression pattern, which in case of alterations, leads to male infertility. Changes of gene expression by chromosome anomalies, gene variants, and epigenetic alterations have been described as the main genetic causes of male infertility. Recent molecular and cytogenetic approaches have revealed that higher order chromosome positioning is essential for basic genome functions, including gene expression. This review addresses this issue by exposing well-founded evidences which support that altera...

Testosterone levels vary depending on a person ’s sex, age, and physical activity levels. Testosterone levels that are too high or too low may cause a range of potential complications including infertility and polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). Learn more about testosterone levels here.

ConclusionMACS is capable of reducing the proportion of SDF, especially spermatozoa with a highly degraded DNA molecule. However, this reduction did not preclude the presence of a small subpopulation of spermatozoa with damaged DNA in the MACS − fraction. The MACS protocol was two- to threefold more efficient when the SDF in NEAT ejaculate was equal to or greater than 30%. In 4 of 20 individuals, the level of SDF after MACS resulted in semen for ICSI with a higher or non-significant reduction when compared to SDF observed in the NEAT ej aculate.

Authors: Han Y, Luo H, Zhang Y Abstract This retrospective cohort study aimed to analyse the risk of congenital anomalies (CAs) in infants conceived by infertile women through assisted reproductive technology (ART). A total of 9,013 clinical pregnancy cycles resulting in 9,101 live births between 2004 and 2014 were analysed. Congenital anomalies were evaluated and compared with spontaneous pregnancies in infertile women. A total of 9,101 infants were born following ART. Three subgroups were established: In vitro fertilisation fresh embryo transfer (IVF-ET), n=2,919, intracytoplasmic sperm injection fresh embryo tra...

Authors: Wang X, Ding X, Xiao X, Xiong F, Fang R Abstract The aim of the present study was to explore the influence of positive simple thyroid peroxidase antibody (TPO-Ab) on female infertility. Venous blood was collected on an empty stomach from infertile female patients (all of whom were in line with the World Health Organization's diagnostic criteria for infertility) receiving treatments at The Affiliated Wuxi Maternity and Child Health Care Hospital of Nanjing Medical University from 2014 to 2017 to detect thyroid function and thyroid antibodies [thyroglobulin antibody (TG-Ab), TPO-Ab and thyroid microsome anti...
