We have studied the chromosomal content in 68 normally fertilised freeze-thawed human embryos of good morphology from 34 patients with an average maternal age of 32,6 years. Forty embryos showed post-thaw cellular division and twenty-eight post-thaw cleavage arrest. After spreading of the embryos on microscope slides, analysis of chromosomes X, Y, 15, 16,(More)
BACKGROUND Oocyte donation has been permitted by Swedish legislation since January 2003. According to the law, offspring have the right to receive identifying information about the donor when they reach a mature age. The aim of the present study was to investigate public opinion regarding different aspects of oocyte donation. METHODS A study-specific(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the relative efficacy of intrauterine insemination (IUI), direct intraperitoneal insemination, and intercourse in cycles stimulated with clomiphene citrate (CC) or human menopausal gonadotropins (hMG). DESIGN A prospective randomized trial with a 2(3) factorial design with eight different treatment alternatives. Only one cycle per(More)
A questionnaire was sent to 12 large in-vitro fertilization (IVF) clinics in Nordic countries, asking about the number of clinical complications in connection with IVF treatment. The total number of cycles included was 10,125, with 7331 embryo transfers performed. Clinical complications were rare, although hyperstimulation syndrome was reported in 0.7% of(More)
BACKGROUND To determine whether prolongation of embryo culture in vitro from day 2 to day 5 after ovum pick-up (OPU) and fertilization can improve the results of in vitro fertilization (IVF), and the morphology of the spare embryos on day 2 can predict the developmental capacity during prolonged culture. We also wanted to consider this as a strategy to(More)
BACKGROUND Infertile women in Sweden are offered in vitro fertilization (IVF) within the frame of the social security system. The present investigation was undertaken to evaluate the prevalence of genital human papilloma virus (HPV) infection in relation to the results of cytologic screening and to the infertility in these women. MATERIAL AND METHODS Two(More)
BACKGROUND Oocyte donation has been permitted by Swedish legislation since January 2003. While donors are anonymous to the receiving couple, offspring have the legal right to receive identifying information about the donor when they reach adult age. Our aim was to investigate factors of potential importance for women's willingness to donate oocytes. (More)
Aseptic peritonitis was induced in rabbits by intraperitoneal injection of irritating agents, mainly starch suspensions. The inflammatory response was followed in the peritoneal lavage fluid by cell counts (average increase about 800-fold the first day) and hyaluronan concentration (average increase about 200-fold on the second and third days). The turnover(More)
The early uterine response to transplanted, delayed and estrogen-activated blastocysts was studied ultrastructurally and compared with that induced by intrauterine instillations of deciduogenic agents (arachis oil, air). The uterine responses to delayed and activated blastocysts showed no ultrastructural or temporal differences. Already within 4 h after(More)
