Pregnancy rates following direct transfer of frozen-thawed bovine embryos were affected by the developmental stage of the embryos and the parity of the recipients, and further research is needed to improve the freezing tolerance of IVF embryos to develop efficient direct transfer methods analogous to those used for in vivo embryos.

Forty years of embryo transfer in cattle: a review focusing on the journal Theriogenology, the growth of the industry in North America, and personal reminisces.
Well-established and reliable techniques involving superovulation, embryo recovery and transfer, cryopreservation, and IVF are utilized worldwide in hundreds, if not thousands, of commercial businesses located in many countries. Expand
Cryopreservation of Gametes and Embryos and Their Molecular Changes
The emerging view is that molecular changes are associated with cryopreservation, affecting metabolism, cytoarchitecture, calcium homeostasis, epigenetic state, and cell survival, which compromise the fertilization in ART. Expand
Development of Mice Embryo (Mus musculus L.) after Closed Pulled Straw Vitrification in CZB Medium
The objective of our present experiment was to investigate the effects of closed pulled straw (CPS) vitrification on the viability and development of mouse embryo. The experiment was arrangedExpand
Human Embryos and Oocytes Cryopreservation in Human Assisted Reproductive Technology-A Case Study
Oocyte cryopreservation offers more advantages compared to embryo freezing, such as fertility preservation in women at risk of losing fertility due to oncological treatment or chronic disease, egg donation, and postponing childbirth, and eliminates religious and/or other ethical, legal, and moral concerns of embryo freezing. Expand
Cryopreservation of Oocytes and Embryos: Current Status and Opportunities
The biochemical and metabolic activities of living cells are virtually stopped at ultralow temperature and they enter into a suspended state of animation. However, as such, exposure of living cellsExpand
Cryopreservation of farm animal gametes and embryos: recent updates and progress
There are still problems that urgently require practical solutions, such as remedies for cryodamage and encouraging the use of frozen–thawed porcine sperm in pig production, and significant innovation in advanced cryopreservation systems and carriers is needed. Expand
Cryopreservation of mammalian embryos: Derivation of a method.
The first successful embryo cryopreservation procedure was developed by collaboration of three investigators, each bringing a special expertise and perspective to the project. Expand
