STANDARD IVF In Vitro Fertilization, Fertilization
In vitro fertilization (IVF) is a process by which an egg is fertilised by sperm outside the body: in vitro . The process involves monitoring and stimulating a woman's ovulatory process, removing an ovum or ova (egg or eggs) from the woman's ovaries and letting sperm fertilise them in a liquid in a laboratory. The fertilised egg (zygote) is cultured for 2–6 days in a growth medium and is then implanted in the same or another woman's uterus, with the intention of establishing a successful pregnancy.
Background: In the last few years, a marked decrease in male fertility has been reported. Environmental factors were recently suspected for this problem. The misuse of medicines especially antibiotics are among environmental factors that can affect reproductive system. Ciprofloxacin is a synthetic antibacterial agent belonging to the family of fluoroquinolones with a very broad spectrum effect ...متن کامل

Background Oxidative stress induced by cyclophosphamide (CP), as a chemotherapeutic agent, causes vulnerability of sperm and declining the fertility capacity. Then in this study the effect of crocin (saffron extract) on amelioration of these side effects was investigated. MaterialsAndMethods In this study 24 mice were divided in three groups (n=8). Control group received normal saline (0.2 ml/d...متن کامل
P-67: Quantitative Expression of Pluripotency Specific-Genes in Mouse Blastocysts Produced by In Vitro Fertilization
Background: The efficiency of in vitro fertilization (IVF) is still low to be developed to blastocyst stage probably because of environmental conditions. It is likely that in vitro environment can not exactly mimic in vivo environment due to differences in media, metabolic content, atmospheric composition, temperature and pH. Therefore it may affect embryo quality by changing in embryo gene exp...متن کامل
