REVIEW
Ling Sun, Ling X Jiang, Heng Z Chen
PURPOSE: Due to the high number of multiple embryo transfers into the uterus performed in assisted reproductive technology treatment (ART), the incidences of twin pregnancy and of vanishing twin syndrome (VTS) are correspondingly high. A number of studies have described the obstetric outcomes of the remaining fetus produced after the other twin had vanished compared with a singleton at the start following ART, but the results are mixed and contradictory. We performed a systematic review of the existing studies to explore the actual obstetric outcome of VTS to allow physicians to adequately advise their patients...

Lanting Yu, Yuyan Tan, Lin Zhu
BACKGROUND: Epidemiological studies assessing the relationship between dietary vitamin B2 and the risk of breast cancer have produced inconsistent results. Thus, we conducted this meta-analysis of epidemiologic studies to evaluate this association. METHODS: We searched English-language MEDLINE publications and conducted a manual search to screen eligible articles. A random-effect model was used to pool study-specific risk estimates. Egger's linear regression test was also used to detect publication bias in meta-analysis...

BACKGROUND: Various ovarian reserve markers have been used to predict ovarian response and pregnancy. However, concerning Chinese population, fewer trials have been performed using the combined ovarian reserve markers to predict ovarian response and pregnancy in GnRH antagonist protocols. METHODS: Data from a total of 373 patients' in vitro fertilization cycles using GnRH antagonist protocol was retrospectively included. According to our center's daily practice, circulating follicle-stimulating hormone, luteinizing hormone, and estradiol (E2) were tested on menstrual cycle day 2-4 or hCG trigger day, and the concentration of AMH was determined despite of menstrual cycle...

PURPOSE: Recurrent miscarriage (RM) affects up to 2-3% of couples of reproductive age. There are several causes for this condition, including immunologic. The embryo is considered an allograft, subject to the rejection mechanisms of the maternal immune system. Immunotherapy involving immunization with lymphocytes is considered in cases of idiopathic RM. However, there is still no consensus regarding the efficacy and safety of this therapy. METHODS: This systematic review and meta-analysis evaluated the data available in the literature regarding the efficacy and safety of the use of immunotherapy with lymphocytes in couples with history of RM...

PURPOSE: Endometriosis has an incidence reaching up to 50% in infertile women. Cytokine-mediated immune responses seem to play an important role in endometriosis pathogenesis, but still the etiology and pathophysiology remain unclear. In the current study we tried to investigate whether there is a relationship between IL-10 genetic polymorphism, serum levels of IL-10 and the presence of advanced endometriosis. METHODS: The presence of IL-10 592C/A, 819T/C, 1082G/A promoter polymorphisms and IL-10 serum levels were investigated in advanced endometriosis patients compared to healthy controls...

BACKGROUND: p16 (INK4A) (p16) functions as a tumor suppressor gene in various malignancies. Aberrant p16 methylation has been proposed to be essential in ovarian carcinogenesis. However, it is unclear whether p16 can be used as a diagnostic marker owing to the small sample sizes in previous studies. METHODS: To determine whether p16 promoter methylation is associated with epithelial ovarian cancer and can thus be used as a diagnostic marker, we performed a meta-analysis of published studies...

OBJECTIVE: Laparoscopic approaches are the gold standard surgical treatment for intramural and subserous fibroids, whereas submucosal myomas can be treated via hysteroscopy. Removal of intramural myomas often requires a subsequent reconstruction of the uterine wall that ranges from single- to multiple-layer sutures to complex reconstructions. Several classification systems are currently used to characterize uterine fibroids, all of which focus on the assessment of submucosal fibroids during hysteroscopic myomectomy...
