BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to determine the relationship between nutrient utilization by the human embryo and its subsequent viability after transfer. METHODS The embryos of 50 patients having single blastocyst transfer were cultured individually from Day 3 in 10 µl drops of medium G2 under Ovoil in 5%O(2), 6%CO(2), 89%N(2). Patient inclusion in the study was maternal age ≤ 38. Embryos were moved to fresh drops of medium every 24 h. Spent media samples, including controls containing… CONTINUE READING
