We describe a unique case of conception and pregnancy, with successful maternal and foetal outcomes, in a patient with metastatic melanoma who had received combination anti-CTLA-4 and anti-PD1 therapy. A 32-year-old G0P0 lady, with a 10-year history of infertility of unclear cause, was found to be 7 weeks pregnant after 14 months of nivolumab maintenance therapy, having previously received combination ipilimumab and nivolumab. Nivolumab was ceased upon discovery of pregnancy in the first trimester. The patient had an uneventful pregnancy, followed by spontaneously premature labour, and delivered by caesarean section at 33 ...

The objectives of this study were to assess whether utilisation is related to national wealth, presented as gross domestic product (GDP) and whether the GDP has any effect on success in IVF treatment, mainly delivery and clinical pregnancy rates. Our results demonstrated significant positive correlation between utilisation and GDP (CC =0.563, P = 0.00000194) and both utilisation and GDP have strong negative correlation to successful outcome of the treatment-clinical pregnancy rate (CC: -0.460, P = 0.00015; CC: -0.399, P = 0.0012; respectively) and delivery rates (cc=-0.396, p= 0.00...
