Rachael Shirlow, Martin Healey, Michelle Volovsky, Vivien MacLachlan, Beverley Vollenhoven
Background: Many adjuvant therapies are employed during IVF treatment in an attempt to improve outcomes. The objective of our study was to evaluate the impact of thirteen adjuvants (Intralipid, steroids, melatonin, coenzyme Q10, Filgrastim, testosterone, DHEA, growth hormone, antibiotics, hCG infusion, aspirin, enoxaparin/heparin and dopamine agonists) on the success of embryo transfers. Methods: This is a retrospective cohort study of all embryo transfers between January 2010 and April 2015 from a multi-site IVF clinic...

BACKGROUND: Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor and NK cells have an interrelated role in angiogenesis that is critical for placentation and success of in vitro fertilization. An attempt was made to assess a possible relationship between the two in this study. METHODS: A case control study was performed comparing the serum levels of VEGF-A and its receptor VEGF-R1 with levels of NK cells, activated NK cells and NK cytotoxicity in 62 women with Repeated Implantation Failure (RIF)...

OBJECTIVES: Does addition of Intralipid to sildenafil and enoxaparin immunotherapy improve pregnancy outcome? MATERIALS AND METHOD: Report of a striking case of a patient with history of 4 recurrent pregnancy losses (RPL) and IVF failures. RESULTS: Adding of Intralipid resulted in giving birth to a healthy male baby in the 3th IVF cycle. CONCLUSION: Combination therapy that includes Intralipid may generate successful IVF outcome, although this problem merits further study, especially regarding safety issues...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the efficacy of intralipid intravenous infusion in achieving a live pregnancy following IVF--embryo transfer in women of advanced reproductive age (40-42 years). MATERIALS AND METHODS: A matched control was performed. Women aged 40-42 with a previous history of miscarriage or who failed to conceive despite previous embryo transfer who entered an IVF program were offered intravenous intralipid therapy (four ml of 20% liposyn II in 100 ml normal saline over one hour) during the mid-follicular phase...

OBJECTIVE: To identify and summarize published cases in which intravenous lipid emulsion was used to treat pediatric patients with acute drug toxicities. DATA SOURCES: PubMed, SCOPUS, and EMBASE were searched up to December 2012 for relevant publications using the terms fat emulsion, lipid emulsion, Intralipid, Liposyn, Medialipide, Medialipid, lipid rescue, ILE, IVLE, IFE, IVFE, or lipid and intoxication, overdose, poisoning, toxicity, resuscitation, antidote, and rescue that were limited to reports in humans aged 18 years or younger...

Embryo-secreted preimplantation factor (PIF) is necessary for, and its concentration correlates with, embryo development in humans by promoting implantation and trophoblast invasion. Synthetic PIF (sPIF) modulates systemic immunity and is effective in autoimmune disease models. sPIF binds monocytes and activated T and B cells, leading to immune tolerance without suppression. This study examined the effect of sPIF on natural killer (NK) cell cytotoxicity in 107 consecutive nonselected, nonpregnant patients with recurrent pregnancy loss (RPL) and 26 infertile IVF patients (controls)...

OBJECTIVE: To review the current state of the science regarding intravenous fat emulsions (IVFEs), with an emphasis on their safety profile. DATA SOURCES: Articles were identified via a search of the MEDLINE database, including publications from 1979 to December 2009, using a search string that included the terms parenteral nutrition, lipid emulsion, fat emulsion, IVFE, safety, adverse effect, neonate intralipid, and terms describing a range of specific adverse events (AEs) such as pancreatitis...

Abnormalities in hematologic parameters, associated with prolonged utilization of intravenous fat emulsion (IVFE), were observed in seven children on long-term cyclic total parenteral nutrition (TPN). All patients were receiving IVFE (Intralipid 20%) 1 to 2 g/kg/24 hr as part of TPN, during 3 to 18 months. Recurrent thrombocytopenia occurred in all seven patients. Platelet lifespan, as measured with 111 Indium was reduced. Sea-blue histiocytes containing granulations and hemophagocytosis were seen on bone marrow smears...
