Recent improvements in techniques in clinical assisted reproduction have led to an increased interest in the cryopreservation of human ovarian tissue as a way of preserving fertility and ovarian steroidogenic activity in young cancer patients. Acceptable follicular survival in frozen-thawed human ovarian tissue has generally been reported. Since a 0.3 mol/l sucrose concentration in cryopreservation solutions evidently increases human oocyte survival after cryopreservation, the aim of this study… CONTINUE READING
