ConclusionssLHCGR levels are negatively related to AMH when oocyte yield is high. High early cycle sLHCGR is associated with elevated day-3 oestradiol. Low sLHCGR and SOR are indicators of increased clinical pregnancy and live birth rates. Patient age and SOR, combined with EOR, might improve prediction of IVF treatment outcomes.

This study aimed to determine the effects of two fusion-activation intervals and the aggregation of bovine cloned embryos on subsequent in vitro and in vivo development. Zygotes produced by handmade cloning were exposed to two fusion-activation intervals (2 h or 4 h), and then cultured in microwells either individually (1 × 100%) or after aggregation of two structures (2 × 100%). Zona-intact oocytes and zona-free oocytes and hemi-oocytes were used as parthenote controls under the same fusion-activation intervals. Day-7 cloned blastocysts were transferred to synchronous recipients. Cleavage (Day 2), ...

Conclusions: Our study demonstrates that NCH gel appears to be able to reduce the formation of IUAs in women who undergo curettage in the second trimester, although larger controlled, randomized, multicenter studies are needed to confirm these results. PMID: 30524185 [PubMed - in process]

The objective of the study was to identify microorganisms of the maternal genital tract that are associated with neonatal damage, in order to prevent future perinatal complications. Seven hundred and eleven pregnant patients attended their prenatal control during the period January 2010-July 2013. Ureaplasma urealyticum and Mycoplasma hominis presence was investigated in umbilical cord blood by metabolic substrates (Micofast-Biomerieux) and that of T.vaginalis, by PCR using specific primers. The microbiological study of the vaginal contents of 288 pregnant patients at weeks 35 to 37 was performed by conventional methods, a...

Publication date: Available online 15 December 2018Source: Molecular Aspects of MedicineAuthor(s): Denise Hoch, Martin Gauster, Sylvie Hauguel-de Mouzon, Gernot DesoyeAbstractEarly pregnancy is characterized by a series of complex and tightly regulated events to ultimately establish implantation and early placental development. One of the key events is the opening of the decidual spiral arteries into the intervillous space. It leads to a rise in oxygen tension in the intervillous space and the placenta and will induce transcriptional and translational changes of oxygen-sensitive molecules including antioxidants.Diabetes an...
