Introduction: The medical industry is one of the dynamic industries with frequent innovations and discoveries, which in-vitro fertilization (IVF) technology being the recent change. IVF is an assisted reproductive technology that was invented to treat fertility and genetic problems associated with conception which involves implantation of good quality embryosin to uterus. The success of IVF depends majorly on the embryo selection, the age of the gestational carrier and the cause of infertility… Expand

Figures and Tables from this paper


Intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI).
ICSI has been used worldwide and successfully to treat infertility due to impaired testicular function or obstruction of the excretory ducts resulting in severe oligoasthenoteratozoospermia or even azoOSpermia in the ejaculate. Expand
Selection criteria for human embryo transfer: A comparison of pyruvate uptake and morphology
It is concluded that pyruvate uptake as the sole criterion for embryo selection cannot predict which embryos will implant after transfer and assessment of embryos using morphological and developmental criteria remains the most consistent, though inefficient, indicator of pregnancy potential. Expand
Noninvasive metabolomic profiling of embryo culture media using proton nuclear magnetic resonance correlates with reproductive potential of embryos in women undergoing in vitro fertilization.
Glutamate concentrations determined by (1)H NMR were significantly higher in spent culture media of embryos that resulted in pregnancy and delivery compared to those that failed to implant. Expand
Non-invasive amino acid turnover predicts human embryo developmental capacity.
Non-invasive amino acid profiling has the potential to select developmentally competent single embryos for transfer, thereby increasing the success rate and eliminating multiple births in IVF. Expand
The timing of first cleavage of different cloned and IVF embryos with oocytes recovered by ovum pickup
For in vivo development, the efficiency of IVF was higher than that of SCNT and the timing of first cleavage, pregnancy and calving rate differs by the source of donor fibroblast cells, and shorter timing offirst cleavage may imply a higher pregnancy or calve rate. Expand
Comparison of pyruvate uptake by embryos derived from conception and non-conception natural cycles.
It is suggested that the ability of an embryo to implant is multifactorial and that both morphology and pyruvate uptake may be factors. Expand
Safety issues in assisted reproductive technology: aetiology of health problems in singleton ART babies.
The analysis of the outcome of singleton pregnancies resulting from IVF versus artificial insemination, obtained with or without the use of ovarian stimulatory agents, suggests that female infertility is an important risk factor. Expand
Non-invasive measurement of glucose and pyruvate uptake by individual human oocytes and preimplantation embryos.
Non-invasive measurement of pyruvate uptake before embryo transfer may provide a valuable functional criterion for the selection of viable embryos capable of developing to the blastocyst stage. Expand
Non-invasive measurement of pyruvate and glucose uptake and lactate production by single human preimplantation embryos.
It is proposed that the high production of lactate by human preimplantation embryos in vitro is an adaptation to the conditions of culture. Expand
