Parents of first IVF baby would be denied the procedure today
UK campaigners Fertility Network UK say the invention of IVF is less of an achievement because not enough people have full access to the treatment which helps infertile people to conceive.
Comparing the role of anti-Müllerian hormone as a marker of FSH action in male and female fertility. Expert Rev Endocrinol Metab. 2019 Mar 04;:1-12 Authors: Urrutia M, Grinspon RP, Rey RA Abstract INTRODUCTION: Originally limited to the assessment of disorders of sex development, anti-Müllerian hormone (AMH) measurement has more recently been extended to several conditions affecting the reproductive axis in males and females. Follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) regulation of gonadal function has been extensively studied, but its role on AMH production has been explored only recently. Areas cov...

In conclusion, our results indicated that the IL-3 rs40401 polymorphism is associated with increased risk of abortion of IVF patients. Future studies with inclusion of other ethnic populations must be conducted to confirm the findings of this study.
After an endometriosis diagnosis, Ash launched a program that matches individuals struggling with infertility with mentors who already had been through the process.
ConclusionsThis study demonstrated that CFAP43 and CFAP44 mutations are important causes of MMAF in the Chinese population. These novel mutations broaden the spectrum of CFAP43 and CFAP44 mutations.

Buhling, Annika Schumacher, Christine zu Eulenburg, Elena LaakmannAbstractTo study the evidence of the influence of micronutrient supplementation on male fertility based on published research and to make recommendations for micronutrient supplementation for men suffering from infertility.18 randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled trials were included in the meta-analysis or in the systematic review.A significant improvement in semen parameters was evident for selenium (200 g orally, daily) and L-carnitine (LC; 2 g ...
CONCLUSION: These results suggest that the polymorphism in MTHFD1 G1598A gene could be considered as an important genetic disorder associated with the etiology of male infertility. PMID: 30882176 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Abstract PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to evaluate expression of Post-Acrosomal WW Binding Protein (PAWP) in infertile men with low and high fertilization post ICSI and also globozoospermic men. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Semen samples were collected from 18 infertile men with previous failed or low fertilization (50%) post ICSI, 15 globozoospermic men, and 21 fertile individuals. Then, expression of PAWP was assessed at RNA with quantitative Real Time PCR. RESULTS: Relative expression of PAWP in sperm was significantly (p
Genesis, genes and epigenetics of endometriosis-associated infertility, Published online: 18 March 2019; doi:10.1038/s41574-019-0191-9Jae-Wook Jeong and colleagues report that histone deacetylase 3 (HDAC3) is downregulated in the endometrium of women with endometriosis. In addition, they show that the loss of HDAC3 is associated with aberrant hormonal signalling and increased fibrosis in the endometrium and impaired endometrial receptivity.
