OBJECTIVE To determine if metabolomic profiling of embryo culture media correlates with reproductive potential of individual embryos. DESIGN Prospective study. SETTING An academic and a private assisted reproduction program; a university research center. PATIENT(S) Women undergoing assisted reproduction treatment. INTERVENTION(S) Sixty-nine spent media samples from 30 patients with known outcome (0 or 100% sustained implantation rates) were individually collected after embryo transfer… CONTINUE READING
