Abstract BACKGROUND: The inability to have children affects 10% to 15% of couples worldwide. A male factor is estimated to account for up to half of the infertility cases with between 25% to 87% of male subfertility considered to be due to the effect of oxidative stress. Oral supplementation with antioxidants is thought to improve sperm quality by reducing oxidative damage. Antioxidants are widely available and inexpensive when compared to other fertility treatments, however most antioxidants are uncontrolled by regulation and the evidence for their effectiveness is uncertain. We compared the benefits and risks of...

Conclusion(s)Genetic counselling must take into consideration the risk of a birth related to the adjacent-1 segregation mode, irrespective the translocation carrier sex. These results will allow a deeper understanding of the PGD results of t(11;22) carriers, which often include a high number of aneuploid embryos.

GrimbizisAbstractThe prevalence of congenital uterine anomalies (CUA) is reported to be 4.3–6.7% in the general population, 3.4%–8% in the infertile population, and 12.6–18.2% of those with recurrent miscarriages. They are the result of abnormal formation, differentiation, and fusion of the Müllerian or paramesonephric ducts during fetal life.To date, various classification systems have been proposed for the cate...

Because it has become such a frequent item in everyday meals, suggesting that something so commonplace must be fine, people often ask: Is wheat really that bad? Let’s therefore catalog the health conditions that are associated with wheat consumption. Health conditions we know with 100% certainty are caused by consumption of wheat and related grains: Celiac disease, dermatitis herpetiformis, cerebellar ataxia, “idiopathic” peripheral neuropathy, temporal lobe seizures, gluten encephalopathy, type 1 diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, autoimmune hepatitis, autoimmune pancreatitis, tooth decay Health conditions ...

ConclusionsCompared with the control group, ER in twins had a higher miscarriage and fetal loss rate, whereas FR in twins was similar to the control group. So, the FR procedure is overall a better and safer approach of MPR in reducing morbidity and mortality in HOMPs.

This study reports of 28 male carriers from our clinic with balanced reciprocal translocations of chromosome 13, 14, or 15, and a literature review of 201 cases. The 28 male carriers from our clinic were diagnosed by cytogenetic analyses: 19 subjects suffered from pregestational infertility and 9 from gestational infertility. The most common translocations were t(7;13), t(10;14), and t(3;15), observed respectively in 13 (46%), 8 (29%), and 8 (29%) of our subjects. The literature cases (n = 201) involved chromosome 13 (n = 83, 41%), chromosome 14 (n = 56, 28%) or 15 (n = 62, 31%) in which 75 breakpoints were...

Accurate classification is crucial to management. A 30-year-old primigravida presented with spontaneous conception of monochorionic diamniotic twins in the right horn of a bicornuate uterus, previously diagnosed as a didelphys uterus. At 28 + 5 weeks of gestation, the patient had preterm prelabour rupture of membranes followed by preterm labour, resulting in the patien...
