Interspecies embryo transfer is a possible approach that can be used to conserve endangered species. It could provide a useful technique to preserve the Iranian and wild Bactrian camels, both of which are threatened with extinction. In the present study, one Bactrian camel was superovulated using decreasing doses of FSH (60, 40, 30, 30, 20, 20 mg, b.i.d.; Folltropin-V; Bioniche, London, ON, Canada) for 6 days, followed by a single injection of FSH (20 mg, i.m.) on Day 7. Daily ovarian… Expand
Adaptation of bactrian camel to hot desert climate using interspecies embryo transfer
TLDR
The adaptation to different climate could be transferred via the uterus to embryo and will provide the opportunity to extend an endangered Iranian bactrian camel, which adapted to the cold environment, to hot desert climates. Expand
Interspecies embryo transfer in South American camelids
TLDR
The result of this study is promising with a 44% pregnancy rate after inter-species transfer and the use of alpacas as recipients for embryos of the slightly larger llama may be relevant for future preservation of the wild South American camelids. Expand
In Vivo and In Vitro Dromedary Camel Embryos’ Production under Egyptian Conditions
TLDR
In vivo embryo production can be considered as an effective tool for embryo in dromedary camels when compared to embryo production in vitro, according to Egyptian conditions. Expand
Current status and future direction of cryopreservation of camelid embryos
TLDR
The current review compares and summarizes recent progress in the field of camelid embryo cryopreservation, identifying four possible reasons for the slow development of an effective protocol and describing eight future directions to improve the current protocols. Expand
Superovulatory response following FSH, eCG-FSH and hMG and pregnancy rates following transfer of hatched blastocyst embryos with different diameter and shape in dromedary camel.
TLDR
FSH protocol provided better and predictable superovulatory response and greater pregnancy rates could be achieved by transferring medium size hatched blastocysts in dromedary camel. Expand
Expression of pregnancy-associated glycoprotein family in the epitheliochorial placenta of two Camelidae species (C. dromedarius and C. bactrianus).
TLDR
This is the first study identifying PAG expression in chorionic cells of the camel placenta, and high structural similarities of the PAG-like epitopes in pigs and camels are revealed. Expand
Optimization of sperm freezability in Bactrian camel using various dilution rates and equilibration times
TLDR
A four-fold dilution along with 1 h equilibration can be an optimal procedure to cryopreserve Bactrian camel sperm. Expand
Effects of natural environment on reproductive histo-morphometric dynamics of female dromedary camel.
TLDR
It is concluded that quiescent ovarian follicular and uterine glandular activities are the main reason of camel low breeding during summer season. Expand
Monitoring and controlling follicular activity in camelids.
This paper reviews that state of our knowledge concerning follicular wave dynamics, monitoring and manipulation. All camelids have overlapping follicular waves in absence of ovulation which isExpand
A systemic review on ultrasonographic applications in camels
TLDR
In conclusion, ultrasonography is untapped in camel practice however, it can offer veterinarians the opportunity for more precise diagnosis and treatment of numerous disorders. Expand

Assisted reproductive techniques for hybridization of camelids.
TLDR
To create this hybrid, semen was collected from male camels by artificial vagina and inseminated into female guanacos and llamas and one hybrid continued to term and was born alive after 328 days of gestation, and another is pregnant at the time of writing. Expand
Embryo transfer in the dromedary camel (Camelus dromedarius) using asynchronous, meclofenamic acid-treated recipients.
TLDR
Treatment of recipient camels with meclofenamic acid reduced the need for tightly timed synchrony between donor and recipient because pregnancies were established in recipients that had ovulated as much as 5 days ahead of the donor. Expand
Interspecific embryo transfer from mouflon (Ovis gmelini musimon) to domestic Corriedale sheep in Argentina.
TLDR
This study demonstrates that the application of IET technology would have great reproductive impact, especially when the donor mouflon hinds are selected according to age and reproductive history. Expand
Synchronization of follicular wave emergence prior to superovulation in Bactrian camel (Camelus bactrianus).
TLDR
Two GnRH injections, 14 days apart, may be used to synchronize follicle wave emergence in Bactrian camel to induce superovulation and the growth of all subsequent follicles and CLs were monitored daily by ultrasonography. Expand
Interspecies pregnancy of Spanish ibex (Capra pyrenaica) fetus in domestic goat (Capra hircus) recipients induces abnormally high plasmatic levels of pregnancy-associated glycoprotein.
TLDR
It is concluded that it is possible to achieve pregnancies after transfer of ibex embryos into domestic goats, but this requires a great change of the PAG profiles, which increase significantly. Expand
Investigation of factors affecting pregnancy rate after embryo transfer in the dromedary camel.
TLDR
The pregnancy rate increased to a maximum of 67% when ovulation in the recipient was negatively synchronized to have occurred 1 day behind that in the donor, and it fell dramatically when the level of asynchrony between recipient and donor increased to +1 (9%) or -3 (10%) days. Expand
Effectiveness of a tris-based extender (SHOTOR diluent) for the preservation of Bactrian camel (Camelus bactrianus) semen.
TLDR
The utilization of a tris-based extender, having the osmolality of 330 mOsm/kg and pH of 6.9, favors the short-term preservation of the Bactrian camel spermatozoa under chilled condition. Expand
Interspecific and extraspecific pregnancies in equids: anything goes.
TLDR
This model of pregnancy loss shows strong evidence of immune memory and the rate of fetal death is reduced by immunization of the surrogate mare against donkey lymphocytes, suggesting an important role for the invasive trophoblast cells of the equine placenta in initiating and driving attachment and interdigitation of the non-invasive placentA for fetal sustenance and in modulating materno-fetal immunological interaction to enable survival of the antigenetically foreign fetus in the uterus.

Semen cryopreservation in Bactrian camel (Camelus bactrianus) using SHOTOR diluent: effects of cooling rates and glycerol concentrations.
TLDR
Semen cryopreservation in Bactrian camel is feasible when it is extended in SHOTOR diluent, cooled within 1h (average cooling rate: 0.55 degrees C/min) to 4 degrees C, and then exposed to glycerol, at the final concentration of 6%. Expand
The ovarian follicular wave pattern and induction of ovulation in the mated and non-mated one-humped camel (Camelus dromedarius).
TLDR
The results indicated that the optimum time to mate or attempt to induce ovulation in the female dromedary is when the growing follicle measures 0.9-1.9 cm in diameter, which is close to the maximum diameter required for ovulation. Expand
