Reactive oxygen species (ROS) and antioxidants are involved in the regulation of reproductive processes. Previous studies in infertile women undergoing an ovarian stimulation cycle have suggested a possible role for ROS in the occurrence of conception in In Vitro Fertilization. In this context the control of the redox balance of follicular fluid becomes essential for reproduction, so that the presence of enzymes with antioxidant activities, such as the paraoxonase (PON) system, would play a… Expand

HDL functionality in follicular fluid in normal-weight and obese women undergoing assisted reproductive treatment
TLDR
The data suggest that the quality of FF-HDL is important determinant for oocyte quality, and targeting FF- HDLL functionality, in addition to FF- HDL-C levels, may represent a promising and interesting biomarker for reproductive outcomes. Expand
