This study compares the effects of rFSH only, rLH + rFSH, and HMG + rFSH administration on in vitro fertilization (IVF) outcomes for patients in three different yearly follow-up cycles. Material and methods: This retrospective, single-center cohort study was conducted from January 2001 to June 2016 at Istanbul Memorial Hospital, Artificial Reproductive Technology Center. From a total of 27,024 IVF cycles in women aged 18 to 45 years (17,536 rFSH only; 2147 rLH + rFSH; 7341 HMG + rFSH), the results of 2,147 cycles receiving a treatment of rLH + rFSH over the 3-year evaluation and 2,081 total cycles in which rLH + rFSH w...

A lot of IVF clinics take pride in the large number of cycles which they do . Their focus is on their turnover, because they are profit making corporates, who need to maximise their ROI for their investors.While is great for the management because this maximizes their revenue, it may not be good for each individual patient they treat. They use an assembly line approach, where every patient is treated as a widget, and the focus is on maximising throughput by using a "one-size-fits-all" approach.Our focus as a boutique clinic is very different ! We make sure that we spend a lot of time and energy on each individual...

Several lines of evidence support the hypothesis that abnormally elevated brain levels of kynurenic acid (KYNA), a metabolite of the kynurenine pathway (KP) of tryptophan degradation, play a pathophysiologically significant role in schizophrenia and other major neurodevelopmental disorders. Studies in experimental animal models suggest that KP impairments in these diseases may originate already in utero since prenatal administration of KYNA ’s bioprecursor, kynurenine, leads to biochemical and structural abnormalities as well as distinct cognitive impairments in adulthood. As KP metabolism during pregnancy is still i...

raway Nearly half of all pregnant women in the Western world drink prior to recognising pregnancy. The current study aimed to investigate the factors associated with drinking prior to recognising pregnancy among pregnant women and factors associated with risky drinking among nonpregnant sexually active women. The study was a cross-sectional survey of a random sample of women aged 18 to 35 years (n = 1062) selected from the New Zealand electoral roll. Pregnant women (currently pregnant: n = 65; previously pregnant: n = 202) who were risky drinkers and who smoked in the year prior to pregnancy had five times the odds (p ...
