CONCLUSIONS Chromosome translocations involving chromosome 6 influence fertility status and lead to increased risk of miscarriage. Cytogenetic screening before opting for assisted reproductive technology and the breakpoints of chromosome 6 translocation should be considered for infertile male carriers.

Publication date: Available online 18 June 2018 Source:Best Practice & Research Clinical Obstetrics & Gynaecology Author(s): Carla Tomassetti, Thomas D’Hooghe When evaluating the correlation between endometriosis and infertility with application of the evidence-based guidelines to establish causality in medicine, it becomes apparent that endometriosis causes infertility. This is supported by a strong and consistent association between the two in various settings (prevalence, natural conception, IUI and ART), evidence for a temporal relation, arguments for a dose-response gradient, and proven effects of remov...

This study aimed to clarify functions of uterine HIF using transgenic mouse models. Mice with deletion of Hif2a in the whole uterus (Hif2a-uKO mice) showed infertility due to implantation failure. Supplementation with progesterone (P4) and leukemia inhibitory factor (LIF) restored decidual growth arrest and aberrant position of implantation sites in Hif2a-uKO mice, respectively, but did not rescue pregnancy failure. Histological analyses in Hif2a-uKO mice revealed persistence of the intact luminal epithelium, which blocked direct contact between stroma and embryo, inactivation of PI3K-AKT pathway (embryonic survival signal...

Fertility, infertility, and fertility preservation have gained increased public interest over the past few years. Infertility is formally defined as the inability to achieve pregnancy after one year of unprotected intercourse.

Conclusions This study demonstrates that the use of ICSI for unexplained infertility achieved similar reproductive outcomes as male infertility cases, which are usually referred to ICSI. It also shows that the quality of semen did not positively affect ICSI outcomes.
