Authors: Zarandi NP, Galdon G, Kogan S, Atala A, Sadri-Ardekani H Abstract While the survival rate of children with cancer is increasing, preserving fertility for prepubertal boys is still a challenge. Although intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) using frozen sperms has revolutionized infertility treatment, it is not applicable for the patients who undergo chemotherapy before puberty since spermatogenesis has not begun. Therefore, preserving spermatogonial stem cells (SSCs) as an experimental option can be provided to prepubertal patients at a risk of damage or loss of their SSCs due to cancer treatments and de...

CONCLUSION: Despite a more frequent presentation with advanced disease, colorectal cancer has a similar prognosis in pregnancy when compared with the general population. Diagnostic interventions and treatment should not be delayed due to the pregnancy but a balance between maternal and foetal wellbeing must always be kept in mind.

[Nairobi News] Two in every 10 couples suffer from infertility, data has shown.
CONCLUSION: Trends favoring twice daily dosing are encouraging findings and require further investigation. PMID: 29999292 [PubMed - in process]
CONCLUSION: Expression of gap junction protein correlates with quantity of oocytes retrieved and might be related to pregnancy outcome. This study suggests that lack of connexin43 expression may contribute to poor ovarian response. PMID: 29999282 [PubMed - in process]
CONCLUSION: When selecting REI fellows for interviews, fellowship directors value candidates who have trained at competitive OB/GYN residency programs, who have clinical or basic science research experience, and who have contributed to scientific literature as first author. When subsequently ranking fellowship applicants, however, the most important factors are those found in the interview process, such as identification as a "team player".

Uterine myomas are common benign monoclonal tumors with extremely low potential for malignancy. They are estimated to be present in up to 70% of women of reproductive age , with a higher incidence in obese women and those of African American descent, and when symptomatic, a frequent indication for gynecologic surgery. Although the presence of myomas may be associated with a plethora of symptoms including pelvic pain, abnormal uterine bleeding, infertility/subfertility, and adverse pregnancy outcomes , the vast majority of women with uterine fibroids are asymptomatic.
Abstract Background: In the current society, infertility related to age has become a social problem. The in vitro fertilization (IVF) success rate in women with poor ovarian response (POR) is very low. Dandelion extract T-1 (DE-T1) is an effective component of the extract from the leaves and stems of Taraxacum officinale, which is one of the medicines used in some patients with POR, but its molecular mechanism remains unclear. Methods: Following IVF, ovarian granulosa cells (GCs) of sixty patients were extracted and divided into normal ovarian response (NOR) and POR groups. GCs were cultured in a dose-depende...
In conclusion, we showed a high incidence of sex chromosome DSD among Egyptian DSD patients with wide karyotype/phenotype diversity. The most frequent sex chromosome DSD detected among patients of the present study was Turner syndrome and variants (52.08%; 25/48) followed by Klinefelter syndrome and variants (43.75%; 21/48). Further long term studies are necessary for accurate detection of frequencies of different types of sex chromosomal anomalies and associated phenotypes.
