In this prospective randomized study on 1380 consecutive in-vitro fertilization (IVF) treatments, the results were compared of culture of human oocytes and embryos for the first 2 or 3 days of development in microdroplets of medium under oil using a gas phase containing either atmospheric (approximately 20%) or reduced (5%) O2 concentrations. No significant differences were found between the two groups cultured under either 5% or 20% O2 in rates of fertilization (60 versus 61%, respectively… CONTINUE READING
