To address this lack of knowledge, the NICHD believes a concerted effort, the Human Placenta Project, would make substantial inroads. The goals of the 5th Annual Human Placenta Project Meeting are to bring together a group of broad thinkers that includes technical subject matter experts, placental biologists, and clinicians to: -Discuss how to achieve the HPP goals -Highlight the progress to date of HPP funded ...

Authors: Gavin-Plagne L, Commin L, Bruyère P, Buff S, Joly T Abstract Animal-derived products are widely used in sperm cryopreservation for their cryoprotective properties. These components, however, tend to be replaced because of sanitary risks. STEMALPHA.CRYO3 (Ref. 5617; Stem Alpha, Saint-Genis-l'Argentière, France), called "CRYO3," is a chemically defined preservation medium currently used for freezing human tissue and adult stem cells. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of a CRYO3-based medium on ram sperm freezing regarding in vitro parameters and in vivo fertility. Semen...
