Reproductive medicine is one of today's most exciting scientific and clinical areas. Every month brings announcements of research developments, medical 'firsts', new rulings by regulatory bodies, or ethical controversies often sparking heated debate among practitioners in the field themselves, as well as ethicists, legislators, the media and the public. ESHRE 2010 provides the media with the opportunity to hear the latest research news and interview the experts. All sessions, including Sunday pre-congress discussions, are open to the media.

News briefings will be held:
11.45 hrs CEST Monday 28 June (English)
13.00 hrs CEST Monday 28 June (Italian)
10.00 hrs CEST Tuesday 29 June (English)
09.15 hrs CEST Wednesday 30 July (English)

Here are a few of the new results to be announced at the conference:

  • Researchers develop accurate way to predict the age when women will hit the menopause; the development could help young women plan when to start their families
  • Understanding the mechanism behind why some sub-fertile women respond poorly to ovarian stimulating hormones opens the way to designing personalised treatments
  • Mothers who drink alcohol while pregnant may be damaging the semen quality of their future sons
  • Cheap and simple, non-invasive blood test could replace invasive diagnostic techniques for detecting chromosomal abnormalities in early pregnancy
  • The rejuvenating effects of ovarian transplants: not only can they restore fertility, but could they also lengthen life?
  • In vitro maturation: do eggs matured in the laboratory result in babies with Large Offspring Syndrome?
  • New, non-surgical treatment for uterine fibroids can improve quality of life and maintain fertility
  • How do pregnancy rates from vitrified oocytes compare with those obtained from fresh eggs?
  • Two surveys throw light on why women choose egg freezing for social rather than medical reasons
  • How does being overweight affect women's chances of successful pregnancy through ART?
  • EU requirement for viral screening at each gamete donation is expensive and unnecessary, say Irish researchers
  • Endometriosis affects women's productivity at work more than other conditions causing pelvic pain
  • Latest figures on the use of ART in Europe and across the world
