UNLABELLED The present study investigated the effect of estrous cow serum (ECS) during culture of bovine embryos on blastocyst development and survival after cryopreservation by slow freezing or vitrification. Embryos were derived from in vitro maturation (IVM) and in vitro fertilization (IVF) of abbatoir-derived oocytes. At Day 3, embryos were cultured in(More)
The objective of Experiment 1 was to compare the effects of estradiol benzoate (EB) given 0 or 24h after the end of a progestagen treatment on ovulation and CL formation in anestrous cows. Twenty cows were treated with an intravaginal sponge containing 250 mg of medroxiprogesterone acetate (MPA). At sponge insertion, each cow received 3 mg EB and 10 mg MPA(More)
Two multiple ovulation and embryo transfer (MOET) programs with fresh, frozen and vitrified red deer embryos were carried out during the reproductive season of 2005 and 2006 in a local breeding farm in Argentina. Multiparous (n=10 and 9, respectively) weaned hinds were used as donors for each year. The estrous synchronization treatment of donors and(More)
Synchronization of estrous and fixed-time artificial insemination (FTAI) was conducted during the reproductive season of 2008 (March-April) in a local red deer breeding farm in Argentina. Multiparous suckling hinds (n=38) were artificially inseminated following hormonal treatment (intravaginal sponge containing 100mg of medroxiprogesterone acetate). At the(More)
Previous research from our laboratory in beef cattle suggests that the pre-ovulatory follicle size, maturity and subsequent susceptibility to gonadotropin are influenced by the length of progestagen treatment in artificial insemination programme in beef cows. To test this hypothesis, two experiments were conducted. In experiment 1, 35 anoestrous beef cows(More)
Ultrasonography is widely used in domestic species of camelids, but there is no information about the use of this technique for pregnancy diagnosis and determination of embryonic or fetal losses in the vicuña (Vicugna vicugna). The study was performed in 202 vicuñas (3-year-old females, n = 31; adult females, n = 171) mated during the summer months (January(More)
A 25-year-old Chinese woman with a 5-year history of infertility was referred for IVE She had bilateral cystectomies in April 1984 for endornetriosis, followed by further medical treatment with Danazol, 200 mg tid, for 9 months. Both fallopian tubes were blocked and the endometriornas recurred. Two days before her IVF treatment, ultrasound examination(More)
To determine a dose of progesterone (P4) that allow ovarian follicular wave control, Aberdeen Angus cows were randomly assigned into four groups: T600 (n=5), 600 mg of P4/day; T400 (n=5), 400 mg of P4/day; T200 (n=4), 200mg of P4/day and Control (n=4) (excipient only). Progesterone was injected from day 3 to 9 of estrous cycle. Ultrasonographies and blood(More)
This study was designed to evaluate in suckling early pregnant beef cows with and without eCG-pre-stimulation: (i) the influence of day gestation (from 40 to 101 days) and the consecutive eCG treatments on the follicular growth induced by means of ultrasound-guided transvaginal follicle ablation (FA; all follicles ≥ 5 mm) and the number and quality oocytes(More)
Two experiments were conducted to determine the effect of estradiol benzoate (EB) and intravaginal progestagen treatment on ovarian follicular dynamics and superstimulatory response in eCG-treated llamas. The purpose of Experiment 1 was to evaluate the effect of EB and progestagen treatment starting at different phases of dominant follicle (DF1) development(More)
