The aim of this study was to evaluate accuracy, tolerability and side effects of office hysteroscopic-guided chromoperturbations in infertile women without anaesthesia. Forty-nine infertile women underwent the procedure to evaluate tubal patency and the uterine cavity. Women with unilateral or bilateral tubal stenosis at hysteroscopy with chromoperturbation, and women with bilateral tubal patency who did not conceive during the period of six months, underwent laparoscopy with chromoperturbation. The results obtained from hysteroscopy and laparoscopy in the assessment of tubal patency were compared...

In this study we investigate the association of C3953T transition single nucleotide polymorphism in the fifth exon of the interleukin 1β gene with idiopathic male infertility. In a case-control study, blood samples were collected from 230 fertile and 207 infertile men who referred to the Kashan IVF centre. Genotypes of samples at the C3953T location were determined by polymerase chain reaction-restriction fragment length polymorphism. The data showed a significant association of TT genotype (OR = 2.49, 95%CI = 1...

This study was conducted to evaluate the relation between cigarette smoking, semen quality and ratios of protamine mRNAs in smokers and non-smokers. Spermatozoa from 123 men and 64 smokers and 59 non-smokers whose female partners attended an assisted reproduction and andrology laboratory were evaluated. Protamine mRNA was extracted from purified sperm, reverse-transcribed and subjected to real-time quantitative PCR using specific primer pairs for protamine 1 (PRM1) and protamine 2 (PRM2). The main outcomes showed that PRM1 mRNA levels in smokers were significantly lower (p = 0...

Chey G Dearing, Kevin S Lindsay
Semen cryopreservation is the recommended method for protecting the fertility of men before they undergo iatrogenic treatments. However, post-thaw sperm quality is highly variable between and within individuals. Thus, prediction of post-thaw quality has not been achieved with great certainty. Men (n = 101) attending our andrology clinic each produced a single ejaculate for semen analysis and semen cryopreservation. Post-thaw semen quality was examined for associations with traditional and novel semen and seminal plasma parameters...

Recent advances in cancer therapy have resulted in an increased number of long-term cancer survivors. However, because of their treatment, women might be confronted with impaired fertility. The options of fertility preservation (FP) techniques are increasing. The goal of this study was to assess knowledge about, and attitudes towards, fertility preservation in young female cancer patients. A cross-sectional online survey was conducted including 155 former female cancer patients from English and German speaking countries...

Jean Purdy is almost forgotten as one of the British trio that introduced clinical IVF to the world. An unlikely pioneer, she qualified as a nurse but through indefatigable effort and unstinting loyalty to a programme that faced vitriolic opposition she became the clinical embryologist for the first IVF baby. In 1980, she helped to launch fertility services as the 'Technical Director' of Bourn Hall Clinic, near Cambridge. Although Robert Edwards and Patrick Steptoe generously credited her role in research and clinical care, a premature death in 1985 at age 39 robbed her of the reward of witnessing the blossoming of assisted reproductive technologies for patients around the world...

This study evaluated the effect of sperm selection and intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) on subsequent fertilization and embryo development using the hyaluronic acid-based SpermSlow™ (HA-ICSI) compared to injection with polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVP-ICSI). A total of 206 metaphase II oocytes were collected from 21 prospectively enrolled ICSI cycles at Fertility North between July 2014 and March 2015. Sibling oocytes were randomized into HA-ICSI and PVP-ICSI (n = 103 per group). Subsequent fertilization outcomes and embryo development in terms of qualitative and quantitative time-lapse measures following three-day culture in the Embryoscope™ were compared...

Growing evidence indicates that exposure to widespread, environmental contaminants called endocrine disruptors (EDCs) negatively affects animal and human reproductive health and has been linked to several diseases including infertility. This review aims to evaluate the impact of environmental exposure to endocrine disrupting chemicals [phthalates, parabens, triclosan, bisphenol A (BPA), organochlorine (PCBs) and perfluorinated (PFCs) compounds] on the reproductive potential among women, by reviewing most recently published literature...

The influence of family on an individual's fertility has long been an important topic of interest in fertility research. Although studies conducted mostly in developed countries found a significant bearing of fertility of the parents on the fertility of the children, there is a lack of formal research around this topic in India. The present study analyses the effect of sibling size of husband and wife on the completed family size of women using information of 5506 ever-married women aged 45-49 years incorporated in the India Human Development Survey-II (2011-2012)...

Granulosa cells control oocyte maturation through paracrine signalling and changes to the microenvironment around the oocyte. Apoptosis occurs as a physiological mechanism of granulosa cell renewal, but how it relates with the ovarian response to induced ovulation is still unclear. Therefore, this study evaluated apoptosis-related gene expression levels in granulosa cells of patients undergoing controlled ovarian stimulation. We enrolled prospectively 59 consecutive IVF patients referred to a tertiary academic hospital for couple infertility treatment...

This study aimed to assess the possible association of bacterial vaginosis (BV) and early miscarriage in 408 women undergoing intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) for reasons of male infertility. A vaginal sample was obtained before oocyte retrieval and evaluated for BV-associated bacteria using the Nugent scoring system. The primary outcome was early miscarriage and the secondary outcomes included implantation, pregnancy, late miscarriage, preterm delivery and live birth rates. Chi-square, ANOVA, relative risk and odds ratio were used for data analysis where appropriate...

This review attempts to summarize the known literature on high responders to ovarian stimulation during assisted reproductive techniques (ART). Response to gonadotrophins is subject to significant interindividual and intercycle variation, thus carrying a risk of high response or poor response to ovarian stimulation regimens. The main risk for high responders is the development of ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS) which is associated with significant morbidity. Hence, the definition of high responders in the literature has primarily focussed on risk factors for OHSS...

47,XYY syndrome is a sex chromosomal anomaly in men, which may be associated with infertility and has an incidence of 0.1% of male births. The clinical and paraclinical characteristics of men suffering from this anomaly have not been fully described. In this retrospective study, we present 37 cases of 47,XYY infertile men with sperm counts varying from normal to azoospermia, referred to the Genetics Laboratory at the Royan Institute, Iran. Thirteen individuals were mosaic and 24 non-mosaics. Non-mosaic patients were classified as azoospermic (nine cases) and normospermic/oligozoospermic men (15 cases)...

Increasing numbers of donor-conceived individuals (and/or parents) are seeking individuals genetically related through donor conception. One route is through 'direct-to-consumer' (DTC) DNA testing, prompting calls for fertility services to alert donors and prospective parents to the increasing unsustainability of anonymity and secrecy. The complexity of interpreting DNA results in this context has also been discussed, including their lack of absolute certainty, as has the need for professional and peer support...

An improvement in long-term outcomes for malignancies and non-malignant conditions, together with a review of the NICE Guideline, has led to a need to provide clinical services to deal with the sequelae of disease, its treatment, and subsequent survival of young people diagnosed with cancer. In this article, we describe fertility preservation in an adolescent female diagnosed with Myelodysplastic/pre-malignant Clone with Monosomy 7 with pathophysiology like that of chronic myeloid leukaemia (CML) with known genetic markers in the tumour cells...

The neurotrophin family of proteins and their receptors act as important proliferative and pro-survival factors in differentiation of nerve cells and are thought to play key roles in the development of reproductive tissues and normal function of spermatozoa. The objective of the present study was to evaluate the effect of Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor (BDNF) on the sperm viability and motility, lipid peroxidation (LPO), mitochondrial activity and concentration of leptin, nitric oxide (NO) and insulin in normozoospermic men...
