Invo Bioscience launches InvoCell in US

INVO Bioscience said today it launched its InvoCell intravaginal culture infertility treatment system in the U.S., starting in Texas through the Center for Assisted Reproduction. INVOcell is designed for incubating eggs and sperm during fertilization during early embryo development and operates within a woman’s body, unlike in vitro fertilization which takes place in a laboratory, the company said. The company said it is the 1st intravaginal culture system with marketing clearance in the U.S. “This seemingly simple device is truly a disruptive technology.  The ability to grow embryos in the patient’s vaginal cavity rather than the large, complex expensive, intensive laboratory setting requiring 24/7 monitoring is tremendously advantageous.  We can significantly lower the cost of delivering care by reducing both the need for expensive infrastructure as well as embryologist workload.  We combine this with a reduced approach to medication and significantly streamlined monitoring and patient management systems that we call effortless IVF.  In the future, we anticipate offering the INVO procedure in our effortless IVF facilities for approximately half the current cost of IVF care, with expected similar pregnancy rates to conventional IVF.  This will increase the access to advanced fertility care as both geographic and financial barriers will be significantly diminished,” Center for Assisted Reproduction medical direct...

This study investigated the quality and quantity of eggs and embryos as well as the clinical pregnancy outcome in young infertile women with diminished ovarian reserve (DOR) after in vitro fertilization/intracytoplasmic sperm injection (IVF/ICSI). MATERIAL AND METHODS We retrospectively reviewed records of 4285 infertile women and divided them into 3 groups according to age and ovarian reserve: young women with normal ovarian reserve (n=1695), young women with DOR (n=1121), and older women with DOR (n=1469). RESULTS In young women with DOR, the proportion of high-quality embryos was significantly higher than in older women...

The objective of the present study was to assess toxic and nutritional trace element and mineral status in hair of women with IVF pregnancy and their children. Inductively-coupled plasma mass-spectrometry was used to assess hair trace element levels of 50 women with IVF pregnancy and 158 controls with spontaneous pregnancy and their children. Women with IVF pregnancy were characterized by significantly elevated hair As, Hg, Li, K, Na, and reduced Fe, Si, and Zn contents. Children from IVF pregnancy had significantly lower values of hair Cr, Fe, Mg, Sr, and Al content when compared to the control values, whereas hair Hg and...

ConclusionHysteroscopic surgery using cold graspers combined with electric loop by the HEOS is feasible and effective for treatment of DUL as it preserves the uterus and yields favorable reproductive outcomes. The cold surgery and fenestration method minimize electrical and thermal damage to the endometrium surrounding the myoma, consequently reducing surgical risks.

Over the last 30 years, we have treated lots of patients who have used donor eggs to have a baby. The vast majority of these patients are extremely happy with their decision, and many have come back for a second baby, in order to complete their family.This is especially true when they have chosen that decision for themselves, for purely selfish reasons. They decided , "Yes, this is what we're happy to do, because I want to experience the joy of pregnancy and the happiness of bringing up a baby, and I'm not hung up about whose DNA it is."             ...

AbstractReligion can have a significant influence on the experience of infertility. However, it is unclear how many US women turn to religion when facing infertility. Here, we examine the utilization of prayer and clergy counsel among a nationally representative sample of 1062 infertile US women. Prayer was used by 74.8% of the participants, and clergy counsel was the most common formal support system utilized. Both prayer and clergy counsel were significantly more common among black and Hispanic women. Healthcare providers should acknowledge the spiritual needs of their infertile patients and ally with clergy when possibl...
