Ovarian stimulation does not influence the uterine immune environment in healthy infertile women

ConclusionsOvarian stimulation does not affect the uterine immune cell population or HLA-C binding in healthy women undergoing ovarian stimulation. Further studies are underway to find out if different responses might be seen in women with previous autoimmune disorders.

CONCLUSION: There was no evidence of increased infertility among women who received the HPV vaccine. These results provide further evidence of HPV vaccine safety and should give providers confidence in recommending HPV vaccination. Further research should explore protective effects of HPV vaccines on female and male fertility. PMID: 32253100 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Publication date: February 2020Source: Reproductive BioMedicine Online, Volume 40, Issue 2Author(s): Shuang Yuan, Yichao Qiu, Yuanyuan Xu, Hongjing WangAbstractThere is increasing evidence that human papillomavirus (HPV) infection affects reproductive health and fertility, although its impact on female fertility has not been thoroughly studied. MEDLINE, Embase, CENTRAL, Web of Science, CNKI, Wanfang, VIP and ClinicalTrials.gov databases were systematically searched for relevant articles. A meta-analysis was conducted of 11 studies including 15,450 female subjects that compared HPV prevalence between the infertile and gener...

Abstract Objective: The aims of this study were to determine the prevalence of human papillomavirus (HPV) infection in women treated for infertility and oocyte donors, and to investigate the possible influence of HPV infection on reproductive outcomes. Study design: In this observational laboratory-based study, cervical swabs were collected from oocyte donors (n = 207), and women treated for infertility (n = 945) and analysed for the presence of high-risk HPV (hrHPV) genotypes using the cobas® 4800 HPV Test and PapilloCheck® HPV-Screening. Associations between hrHPV positiv...

ConclusionsHPV and Ct behave as reciprocal risk factors. In women diagnosed with HPV infection or chlamydia, the screening for the mutual infection could represent a preventive intervention for severe reproductive health outcomes, such as cervical cancer and infertility.

ConclusionsThis study demonstrate that there is an association between hrHPV infections in the UGT with infertility, particularly with endometriosis. It also show a possible continuum hrHPV infection, from LGT to UGT. It suggest future larger studies that could fully investigate the role of hrHPV as an eventual cause of endometriosis and infertility.
