Interstitial 5q22 deletions are relatively rare and usually represented by severe clinical features such as developmental delay and growth retardation. Here, we report a 23-year-old male patient, referred to our laboratory for genetic confirmation of possible familial adenomatous polyposis. MLPA and the subsequent array CGH identified an approximately 8-Mb-sized deletion in the 5q22.2q23.1 locus. Further analysis of the deleted region and the genes within suggested a possible role for theTSSK1B (testis-specific serine/threonine kinase 1) gene in the patient's reproductive capacity. Semen analysis confirmed that the patient...
AbstractPurposeThe aim of this study is to examine the impact of female body mass index (BMI) on IVF cycle outcomes.MethodsThis is a retrospective cohort study including 51,198 women who initiated their first autologous IVF cycle in 13 fertility centers in the USA between 2009 and 2015. The effect of underweight, overweight, and obese BMI on four different IVF cycle outcomes (cycle cancellation, oocyte and embryo counts, and ongoing clinical pregnancy [OCP]) was evaluated in logistic or Poisson regression analyses with confounders adjusted.ResultsWomen with an overweight or obese BMI experienced worse outcomes than those w...
ConclusionsThe sealtered sperm proteins and the increased spontaneous acrosome reaction rate might account for this unexplained male infertility in the R-ICSI pregnancy patients. The present proteomic results will throw light on the better understanding of the unexplained infertile mechanisms underlying these normozoospermic man who achieved R-ICSI pregnancy after IVF failure.
