INTRODUCTION Data on the characteristics of female patients counselled for fertility preservation and the efficacy and risk of the applied procedures are still poor. We therefore analysed the registry of a network of 70 infertility centers which are involved in fertility preservation in Germany, Switzerland and Austria, called FertiPROTEKT ((More)
OBJECTIVE To determine whether alterations in the secretion and regulation of matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) and their inhibitors are present in uterine endometrial cells from endometriosis patients. STUDY DESIGN In an in vitro study, uterine endometrial cells from 19 regularly cycling women with and 32 without endometriosis were treated with diethyl(More)
Ovarian stimulation and cryopreservation of fertilized oocytes before cancer therapy is the best established and efficient fertility preservation technique and should still be considered before chemotherapy. Within a short time frame of 2 weeks, between 8.6 (18-25 y) and 5.1 (36-40 y) fertilized oocytes can be cryopreserved.
To evaluate the effects of metformin on endometrial stromal cell gene expression and on the decidualization process, endometrial biopsies were collected from five healthy, regularly cycling women. Stromal cell culture was performed and decidualized with oestrogen/progesterone in the presence or absence of metformin and thereafter stimulated with insulin.(More)
Investigating the interaction of human endometrium and trophoblast during implantation is difficult in vitro and impossible in vivo. This study was designed to analyze the effect of trophoblast on endometrial stromal cells during implantation by comprehensive gene profiling. An in vitro coculture system of endometrial stromal cells with first-trimester(More)
Human implantation is characterized by blastocyst attachment to endometrial epithelial cells followed by invasion of trophoblast into the maternal decidua. There has been an increasing amount of data linking higher levels of the pentraxin PTX3, a long pentraxin, to embryo implantation. PTX3 levels were found to be higher in patients with preeclampsia and(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the effects of metformin on insulin-, IGF I-, and IGF II-receptor gene expression and Akt phosphorylation in decidualized human endometrial stromal cells (ESC) after stimulation with insulin, IGF I and II. STUDY DESIGN ESC were isolated from healthy, regularly cycling women and after two passages decidualized with(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate whether intravaginal application of seminal plasma at the time of follicle aspiration in IVF or intracytoplasmic sperm injection treatment cycles has the potential to increase pregnancy rate. To calculate the number of patients needed to achieve significance in a multicenter trial. DESIGN Double-blind, placebo-controlled randomized(More)
BACKGROUND The pathophysiology of recurrent pregnancy loss (RPL) is still unknown in 50% of the cases. Herein we measure the expression of beta3 integrin subunit, a well-known implantation marker, in women with or without RPL and correlate it with the histological dating of the endometrial tissue. METHODS LH-timed endometrial biopsies were obtained from(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the expression and regulation of antilipoprotein D (ApoD) and antilipoprotein E (ApoE) in human endometrium. STUDY DESIGN Endometrial biopsies from healthy, regularly cycling women were collected during the late proliferative and mid-secretory phase. mRNA gene expression of ApoD and ApoE was determined using real-time PCR in whole(More)
