STUDY QUESTION: Has PGD-HLA been successful relative to diagnostic and clinical efficacy? SUMMARY ANSWER: The diagnostic efficacy of PGD-HLA protocols was found lower in this study in comparison to published PGD-HLA protocols and to that reported for general PGD by ESHRE (78.5 vs 94.1% and vs 92.6%, respectively), while the clinical efficacy has proven very difficult to assess due to inadequate follow-up of both the ART/PGD and HSCT procedure outcomes. WHAT IS KNOWN ALREADY: The first clinical cases for PGD-HLA were reported in 2001...

Generation of genetically uniform non-human primates may help to establish animal models for primate biology and biomedical research. In this study, we have successfully cloned cynomolgus monkeys (Macaca fascicularis) by somatic cell nuclear transfer (SCNT). We found that injection of H3K9me3 demethylase Kdm4d mRNA and treatment with histone deacetylase inhibitor trichostatin A at one-cell stage following SCNT greatly improved blastocyst development and pregnancy rate of transplanted SCNT embryos in surrogate monkeys...

Polyploidy is occurred by the process of endomitosis or cell fusion and usually represent terminally differentiated stage. Their effects on the developmental process were mainly investigated in the amphibian and fishes, and only observed in some rodents as mammalian model. Recently, we have established tetraploidy somatic cell nuclear transfer-derived human embryonic stem cells (SCNT-hESCs) and examined whether it could be available as a research model for the polyploidy cells existed in the human tissues. Two tetraploid hESC lines were artificially acquired by reintroduction of remained 1st polar body during the establishment of SCNT-hESC using MII oocytes obtained from female donors and dermal fibroblasts (DFB) from a 35-year-old adult male...

This study investigates the correlation between sperm morphology and the incidence of embryo aneuploidy in an oocyte donation program. A total of 1,165 embryos from 103 patients have been analyzed by fluorescent in situ hybridization (FISH) for numerical abnormalities in chromosome numbers 13, 18, 21, X, and Y. Data has been evaluated in five groups according to sperm morphology, which has been assessed according to the Kruger's strict criteria. The results did not show any difference in paternal (p = 0.878), maternal (p = 0...

PURPOSE: Partial thawing of a vial of cryopreserved sperm (shaving) is sometimes applied as a measure to preserve sperm for further use, particularly in cases of very restricted sperm quantity. However, mechanical violence may disrupt the sperm-wall and lead to impaired in-vitro fertilization (IVF) outcomes. MATERIAL AND METHODS: In a retrospective case-control study at a tertiary, university-affiliated medical center, we compared the IVF/intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) outcomes of patients who used donor sperm following partial thawing (shaving) of the vial of cryopreserved sperm (n = 99) to a control group consisting of patients for whom the vial of sperm was completely thawed before use (n = 99)...

Aromatase deficiency (AD) is a very rare disorder resulting from mutations in the CYP19A1 gene encoding aromatase, a cytochrome P450 enzyme that plays a pivotal role in androgen conversion to estrogens. AD is inherited in an autosomal recessive trait, and to date only 35 cases have been described in the literature. Herein, we depict a new patient reared as a male, who presented at the age of 21 years with no palpable testis, hypoplastic scrotum, penis-like phallus (3 cm), and penoscrotal hypospadias. The patient was born to consanguineous parents, his karyotype was 46,XX, and SRY was negative...

BACKGROUND: Improvements in oocyte cryopreservation techniques and establishment of cryopreserved donor oocyte banks have led to improved access to and lower cost of donor oocytes, upending the traditional practice of fresh oocyte donation. The objective of this study was to examine national trends in utilization and live birth rates with fresh versus cryopreserved donor oocytes. METHODS: A retrospective analysis of 2013 through 2015 aggregate U.S. national data reported by the Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology which included 30,160 IVF cycles with either fresh or cryopreserved donor oocytes was performed...

OBJECTIVE: Advanced paternal age is related to poor sperm quality; however, little is known on its effect on aneuploidy embryo rates and, more importantly, on chromosomal abnormalities like trisomy 21, 18 and 13. The objective of this study was to evaluate the effect of advanced paternal age on the trisomy rates of the chromosomes 21, 18 or 13 in embryos obtained from donated oocytes. METHODS: A total of 378 embryos, obtained from 52 IVF/ICSI cycles with donated oocytes in conjunction with PGD, were allocated according to paternal age in three groups: Group A: ≤39 years (n=115 embryos), Group B: 40-49 years (n=157 embryos) and Group C: ≥50 year (n=106 embryos)...

REVIEW
Zhenhua Guo, Lei Lv, Di Liu, Bo Fu
Although somatic cell nuclear transfer (SCNT) can be used to create transgenic pigs for human xenotransplantation, low efficiency limits its use. Trichostatin A (TSA) promotes SCNT embryo development, but whether TSA modifies SCNT blastocyst numbers is unclear. Thus, there is an urgent need to understand whether TSA modifies the rate and number of embryos that grow from oocytes to blastocysts in culture and what types of cell signaling pathways may be involved. Thus, we identified 63 reports, of which 13 are included in this meta-analysis...

K Ravanos, G Monastra, T Pavlidou, M Goudakou, N Prapas
OBJECTIVE: It was previously shown that higher concentrations of myo-inositol in human follicular fluid improve oocyte and embryo quality, whereas D-chiro-inositol seems to worsen oocyte quality and ovarian response in polycystic ovary syndrome patients. Our study was the first one aiming to test whether different myo-inositol and D-chiro-inositol concentration in follicular fluids correlate with blastocyst quality in healthy young women. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Eight egg donors and eleven couples undergoing in vitro fertilization, were involved in a prospective observational study...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Effective recruitment and retention of male donors are vital for the ongoing provision of blood products. Compared with females, male donors are less likely to be medically deferred or experience vasovagal reactions and are typically preferred for plasmapheresis donation in voluntary non-remunerated settings. However, females outnumber males among donors aged under 40 years. This systematic review aimed to synthesize evidence and identify key motivators for blood donation among males to inform targeted recruitment/retention campaigns...

Changes in the nutritional plan have been shown to affect oocyte quality, crucial to oocyte donors animals used in cloning. This study aimed to evaluate the impact of diets with increasing nutritional levels (maintenance diet=M; 1.3M; 1.6M; 1.9M) fed to goats for four weeks on follicular fluid composition, gene expression and oocyte competence used to cloning in goats. Donor females were superovulated for the retrieval of matured oocytes and physical measurements reported. After four weeks, groups receiving diets above maintenance increased thickness of subcutaneous adipose tissue and body weight, with higher values in 1...

BACKGROUND: In recent decades gamete donation has received growing attention. Data from the Czech National Registry of Assisted Reproduction show that the number of cycles using donated oocytes has been increasing every year. According to Czech law, gamete donation is anonymous. Since 2011, some members of the Czech parliament have repeatedly made requests to revoke the anonymity but anonymity is one of the preconditions for such donation in this country. The aim of this study was to find out how the gamete recipients feel towards informing their child about the circumstances of their conception and their access to the identity of the donor...

Grafting of testicular tissue into immunodeficient mice makes it possible to obtain functional sperm from immature donor animals that cannot be used for reproduction. We have developed a porcine model of human haemophilia A (haemophilia-A pigs) by nuclear transfer cloning from foetal fibroblasts after disruption of the X-linked coagulation factor VIII (F8) gene. Despite having a recessive condition, female F8+/- cloned pigs died of severe bleeding at an early age, as was the case for male F8-/Y cloned pigs, thus making it impossible to obtain progeny...
