The average age at first birth has been climbing steadily in most wealthy countries and this has resulted in escalating rates of age-related infertility. Advances in technology mean that women can now choose to freeze their eggs to potentially increase their chances of achieving pregnancy at a later date. However, egg freezing is expensive, older age at parenting may confer risks for the mother and child and egg freezing does not address the main problem that leads women to freeze their eggs: lack of a suitable (male) partner who is willing to parent children.

ConclusionsEstimating total and vital sperm DNA fragmentation, after density gradient centrifugation, increased both the sensitivity and the specificity, thereby lowering the number of false negatives and false positives encountered. These findings provide opportunities to investigate the significance of the total and the vital fractions after different assisted reproductive technologies.

Authors: Kelleher AM, DeMayo FJ, Spencer TE Abstract All mammalian uteri contain glands in the endometrium that develop only or primarily after birth. Gland development or adenogenesis in the postnatal uterus is intrinsically regulated by proliferation, cell-cell interactions, growth factors and their inhibitors as well as transcription factors including forkhead box A2 (FOXA2) and estrogen receptor alpha (ESR1). Extrinsic factors regulating adenogenesis originate from other organs including the ovary, pituitary, and mammary gland. The infertility and recurrent pregnancy loss observed in uterine gland knockout shee...
