Many hundreds of exotic species and domestic animal breeds have been lost over the course of the last few decades. In order to avoid a similar fate to other animals threatened with extinction, it is crucial to develop and apply rescue strategies to ensure their survival for the future. One option as a safeguard measure is the cryopreservation of the main source of female gametes enclosed within the ovary: the primordial follicles. So far, there are three options to cryopreserve small ovarian… Expand
Function of Cryopreserved Cat Ovarian Tissue after Autotransplantation
TLDR
It was showed that even though follicular survival was low, follicles were able to survive up to 28 days of transplantation and develop up to the antral stage, which helps elucidate the path for preservation of felid ovaries. Expand
Review on Ovarian Cryopreservation in Large Animals and Non-Human Primates
TLDR
The previous research on ovarian cryopreservation using bovine, porcine, sheep and non-human primate models will be presented in this chapter. Expand
Vitrification of Ovarian Tissue from Non-Human Primates
TLDR
It is possible to conclude that there is still a need to improve procedures for the preservation of genetic material, including in post-mortem situations, as well as to minimize or avoid the cell damage caused by the cryopreservation procedure (physical and chemical). Expand
Fertility preservation through gonadal cryopreservation

TLDR
Different options for gonadal tissue cryopreservation with respect to humans and to laboratory, domestic, and wild animals are discussed. Expand
Breeding or assisted reproduction? Relevance of the horse model applied to the conservation of endangered equids.
TLDR
It is proposed that, owing to the great reproductive similarity among the different members of the genus Equus, the domestic horse can be used to optimize cryopreservation and embryo production protocols for future application in wild equids. Expand
Cryopreservation of animal oocytes and embryos: Current progress and future prospects.
TLDR
The various cryopreservation and vitrification technologies that are used in both humans and other animals are reviewed and the most recent innovations in vitrification are discussed with a particular emphasis on their applicability to animal embryology. Expand
Ovarian Transplantation: Highlight to Non-Human Primates Reproduction
TLDR
Ovarian transplantation in nonhuman primates (NHP) has been used as a strategy for the development of experimental models for biomedical research in the reproductive area, and could be applied also in NHP species preservation. Expand
Viability of zebrafish (Danio rerio) ovarian follicles after vitrification in a metal container.
TLDR
Assessment of the viability and in vitro development of zebrafish follicles after vitrification of fragmented or whole ovaries using the same metal container showed that the immature follicles morphology was well preserved after cryopreservation. Expand
Bovine in vitro reproduction models can contribute to the development of (female) fertility preservation strategies.
TLDR
The possibilities of ruminant in vitro models providing additional insights into several aspects of fertility preservation, ranging from preantral follicle collection to oocyte and follicle cryopreservation, to noninvasive quality assessment, and to follicle culture are considered. Expand
Experimental studies on ovarian cryopreservation and transplantation
TLDR
The study showed that human post menopausal ovaries could be effectively cryopreserved in DMSO and that the stroma secreted androgens during in vitro perfusion and the vascularity showed a well-preserved morphology in these human ovaries. Expand

Xenotransplantation: a tool for reproductive biology and animal conservation?
TLDR
Progress in ovarian banking and ovarian tissue transplantation is described, with emphasis on how fresh and frozen ovarian tissue can be used in assisted reproduction for both humans and animals. Expand
Cryopreservation of oocytes from pre-antral follicles.
TLDR
Additional studies are necessary for a better understanding of the events during follicular cryopreservation and to establish a standard protocol for ovarian transplantation or follicle culture. Expand
Cryopreservation of gametes and embryos of non-domestic species.
TLDR
Even standard methods of cryopreservation may be completely adequate to act as a "temporary" expedient to preserve germplasm of non-domestic species to permit time to acquire a fuller understanding of the biology and behavior ofNon-Domestic species. Expand
Current perspective on primordial follicle cryopreservation and culture for reproductive medicine.
TLDR
A triple-stage process was required, involving culture of ovarian explants followed by isolation of granulosa-oocyte complexes and, finally, suitable conditions for completing meiotic maturation, and achievement of this goal for the larger and more slowly developing follicles from human and farm animal ovaries is still a remote possibility.

TLDR
Tissue cryopreservation should perhaps be offered to all young girls and women who can be predicted to undergo premature ovarian failure due to cancer treatment or genetic causes, and transplantation of the frozen-thawed tissue is a feasible method to utilize the tissue in infertility treatment.

Cryopreservation of canine ovaries by vitrification.
TLDR
Results indicate that cryopreservation of the canine ovary by vitrification appears to have the potential to restore endocrine function and ovulation potential. Expand

TLDR
It is envisage that it will not be long before the first live births across other species, including companion animals, non-domestic and endangered species, will be achieved. Expand
Antral follicles develop in xenografted cryopreserved African elephant (Loxodonta africana) ovarian tissue.
TLDR
The nude mouse model is effective for assessing cryopreserved ovarian tissue xenograft function which can support the development of antral follicles in ovariectomized mice, although oocytes were of poor morphological appearance or only cumulus-like complexes were seen. Expand

TLDR
The results indicate that cryopreservation of mouse ovaries by vitrification is a useful method for the preservation of female germ cells from mice of various ages. Expand
