Purpose: To perform a retrospective analysis of 62 age-matched IVF-treated women in order to investigate whether levels of inhibin B, IGF-I, and IGFBP-1 in serum 2 days before oocyte retrieval and in follicular fluid at the day of oocyte retrieval might be useful as indicators of the ovarian ability to produce oocytes (ovarian reserve). Methods: Patients were allocated into three groups on the basis of the number of oocytes retrieved. Group 1 (“low responders”) had 0–3 oocytes, group 2 (“normal… CONTINUE READING
