Abstract

To evaluate the effect of maternal age on outcomes for IVF and GIFT in women 40 to 45 years of age. Retrospective. Boston IVF, a free-standing university-affiliated IVF and GIFT unit. A total of 2,931 cycles of IVF and 1,826 cycles of GIFT were analyzed in women undergoing assisted reproductive technologies (IVF or GIFT) using autologous eggs. Medical records of patient outcomes were reviewed. For patients undergoing IVF, the cancellation rate for initiated cycles showed significant differences in women aged 25 to 39 (38.3%), women aged 40 to 43 (49.5%), and women aged 44 to 45 years (69.5%). A significantly lower delivery rate per stimulation and delivery rate per retrieval was found in women aged 40 to 43 years when compared with women aged 25 to 39 years. No deliveries occurred in 59 cycles in women aged 44 to 45 years, thereby representing a significant difference when compared with both women aged 25 to 39 years and women aged 40 to 43 years. For patients undergoing GIFT, the cancellation rate for initiated cycles was significantly higher in women aged 40 to 43 (25.0%) and 44 to 45 years (31.0%) when compared with women aged 25 to 39 years (15.1%). A significantly lower delivery rate per stimulation and delivery rate per r...Continue Reading

COVID-19

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Bone Marrow Neoplasms

Bone Marrow Neoplasms are cancers that occur in the bone marrow. Discover the latest research on Bone Marrow Neoplasms here.

IGA Glomerulonephritis

IgA glomerulonephritis is a chronic form of glomerulonephritis characterized by deposits of predominantly Iimmunoglobin A in the mesangial area. Discover the latest research on IgA glomerulonephritis here.

Cryogenic Electron Microscopy

Cryogenic electron microscopy (Cryo-EM) allows the determination of biological macromolecules and their assemblies at a near-atomic resolution. Here is the latest research.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.

LRRK2 & Immunity During Infection

Mutations in the LRRK2 gene are a risk-factor for developing Parkinson’s disease. However, LRRK2 has been shown to function as a central regulator of vesicular trafficking, infection, immunity, and inflammation. Here is the latest research on the role of this kinase on immunity during infection.

Antiphospholipid Syndrome

Antiphospholipid syndrome or antiphospholipid antibody syndrome (APS or APLS), is an autoimmune, hypercoagulable state caused by the presence of antibodies directed against phospholipids.

Meningococcal Myelitis

Meningococcal myelitis is characterized by inflammation and myelin damage to the meninges and spinal cord. Discover the latest research on meningococcal myelitis here.

Alzheimer's Disease: MS4A

Variants within membrane-spanning 4-domains subfamily A (MS4A) gene cluster have recently been implicated in Alzheimer's disease by recent genome-wide association studies. Here is the latest research.
