This study evaluated the effects of bioidentical nanostructured progesterone alone or in association with human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) on the in vitro survival and development of preantral follicles (experiment 1) and oocyte maturation (experiment 2). Bioidentical hormones have a molecular structure identical with that of endogenous hormones; nanostructured substances refer to those reduced to a nanoscale. In experiment 1, fragments of goat ovarian tissue were cultured for 7 days in α-MEM…

Effect of somatotropin on survival and diameter of bovine preantral follicles

TLDR
It is concluded that the use of rbST at different concentrations in in situ culture of bovine preantral follicles has no beneficial effects on survival and growth of bivine PAOF.

Progesterona e Hormônio Folículo-Estimulante interagem e promovem a sobrevivência e o desenvolvimento in vitro de folículos pré-antrais caprinos

TLDR
It is demonstrated that the interaction between progesterone and FSH maintains ultrastructural integrity, stimulates primordial follicles activation and further growth of cultured caprine preantral follicles.

Supplementation of in vitro culture medium with FSH to grow follicles and mature oocytes can be replaced by extracts of Justicia insularis

TLDR
It seems that this natural extract could be used as a cheap and easily available alternative to commercial FSH, and even lead to higher percentages of metaphase II compared to controls.

Progesterone Is an Autocrine/Paracrine Regulator of Human Granulosa Cell Survival in Vitro

TLDR
It is indicated that progesterone inhibits human GC apoptosis, and this effect is mediated through the progester one receptor.

Chilling ovarian fragments during transportation improves viability and growth of goat preantral follicles cultured in vitro.

TLDR
It is demonstrated that chilling ovarian fragments at 4 degrees C during transportation is best for maintaining follicle viability and to increase follicular growth during in vitro culture.

Progesterone and Follicle Stimulating Hormone interact and promote goat preantral follicles survival and development in vitro1

TLDR
It is demonstrated that the interaction between progesterone and FSH maintains ultrastructural integrity, stimulates primordial follicles activation and further growth of cultured caprine preantral follicles.

Androgen potentiates the expression of FSH receptor and supports preantral follicle development in mice

TLDR
It is suggested that androgen has a positive impact on follicle development by augmentation of the actions of FSH, and androgen compensates for FSH deficiency in FSH-dependent follicles.

Luteal Coasting and Individualization of Human Chorionic Gonadotropin Dose after Gonadotropin-Releasing Hormone Agonist Triggering for Final Oocyte Maturation—A Retrospective Proof-of-Concept Study

TLDR
Among the small sample size of 52 women studied, it appears that appropriate progesterone levels can be achieved with hCG dosages as low as 375 IU, which may well optimize the chance of pregnancy while reducing the risk of OHSS associated with higher doses of hCG supplementation in the luteal phase.
