BACKGROUND The potentially damaging effect of free O(2) radicals to cultured embryos may be reduced by adding scavengers to the culture media or by reducing the incubator O(2) levels. However, lowering the O(2) in the culture environment can be expensive, troublesome and may not be justifiable. The objective of this study was to evaluate the effect of lowered incubator O(2) tension on live birth rates in a predominately Day 5 embryo transfer program. METHODS Two hundred and thirty first-cycle… CONTINUE READING
