European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology Results from a large case-control study With an ever-ageing female patient population, egg donation is an increasingly common treatment in infertility. ESHRE's own annual reports on fertility treatments in Europe show a rise in egg donation cycles from 15,028 in 2007 to 24,517 in 2010 (to 4.05% of all treatments). This proportion is still some way behind the USA, where egg donation now accounts for around 12% of all treatments....

At the European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology (ESHRE) Annual Meeting in London on Monday, July 8, Joseph Conaghan, PhD, presented a paper on the use of time-lapse imaging for identifying abnormal embryos. The title of the 30-minute presentation is “Embryos with good morphology but abnormal cell divisions have significantly lower implantation potential.” San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) July 11, 2013 At the European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology (ESHRE) Annual...

Women who give birth to multiple babies following IVF treatment are at a higher risk of breast cancer than those giving birth to singletons or who remain childless. Dutch investigators from the Omega study group said the explanation may not be the multiple pregnancy per se but a maternal trait related to a higher implantation potential and to breast cancer itself. Although the results were derived from a large nationwide cohort study, the investigators emphasise that the findings should...

Children born as a result of assisted reproduction (ART) are at no greater risk of cancer than children born spontaneously in the general population, according to results of one of the largest ever cohort studies of ART children. "This is reassuring news for couples considering assisted conception, their subsequent children, fertility specialists and for the wider public health," said the investigators. Results of the study were presented today at the annual meeting of ESHRE by Dr Carrie...

Shift work, which encourages sleep deprivation and patterns of activity outside the circadian rhythm, has been associated with a greater risk of ill health and loss of well-being in some (but not all) studies. However, little is known about the effects of shift work on reproductive health and fertility. Now, a study reported today at the annual meeting of ESHRE, by Dr Linden Stocker from the University of Southampton, UK, indicates that working shift patterns is associated with an...

Women feel positive about it, even though many believe they will never use the eggs they have stored Egg freezing as insurance against age-related infertility is a growing trend in many countries. Women who bank oocytes for use at some time in the future hope to buy a little time in their search for a suitable partner. However, a study from one of Europe's largest centres in reproductive medicine suggests that many of those banking eggs believe they will never use them - even though...

Altruism is most important, but financial compensation a convincing reason in some countries Egg donation is now one of the major reasons why couples travel abroad for fertility treatment. Because this growing trend may circumvent regulations at home or raise concerns about financial inducement, it has also become one of the most controversial. Yet little is known about the women who provide the donor eggs in overseas clinics - their characteristics, their motivation and their...

Risk of implantation failure and lower yield of oocytes linked to higher levels of urinary phthalates Phthalates are among a group of industrial chemicals shown in some studies to have adverse effects on reproductive health and development, particularly in the male. As such, they have been collectively defined as "endocrine disruptors", and proposed as one of several possible environmental exposures responsible for a decline in fertility. They are classified in two groups - high molecular...

Impaired fetal growth and exposure to maternal smoking correlated with lower measures of sperm quality Studies over the past 20 years have suggested (though not unequivocally confirmed) that semen quality is in decline, reflected most evidently in falling sperm counts and reduced sperm motility. The explanations have been controversially attributed to environmental factors (such as exposure to toxins) and to male smoking. Now, a new study based on a 20-year follow-up of one of the world's...

Human Reproduction is a peer-reviewed scientific journal that concentrates on original research, clinical case studies and opinions and debates on topical issues. The journal was broken into three distinct journals in 1995, with Human Reproduction Update and Molecular Human Reproduction. Human Reproduction Update is a bimonthly review journal and Molecular Human Reproduction is a monthly journal focusing on molecular aspects of reproductive biology. Human Reproduction covers all aspects...

  • The unit of magnetic flux density in the International System of Units, equal to the magnitude of the magnetic field vector necessary to produce a force of one newton on a charge of one coulomb moving perpendicular to the direction of the magnetic field vector with a velocity of one meter per second. It is equivalent to one weber per square meter.
This word is named for Nikola Tesla, the inventor, engineer, and futurist.
