EMD Serono Launches Landmark Patient Registry for Egg Freezing
Date:11/7/2008

egistry will help support the goals of the ASRM's Practice Committee, which called for more studies on the health outcomes of children born from various egg freezing techniques in 2006.

"We need to validate the safety and efficacy of egg freezing for it to become a more widely available option for women who for a variety of reasons would like to preserve their fertility. The HOPE Registry is an exciting vehicle that will assist us in the evidence-gathering process and will facilitate the furthering of the science and the acceptance of oocyte cryopreservation as an effective clinical practice," said Dr. Alan Copperman, Director of the Division of Reproductive Endocrinology and Vice-Chairman of the Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology, and Reproductive Science at Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York, and co-director of Reproductive Medicine Associates of New York.

One patient group that has benefited significantly from egg freezing is women who have been diagnosed with certain types of cancer during their reproductive years and wish to preserve their fertility before cancer treatments. This is one of the few viable options for these women, who require chemotherapy and/or radiotherapy treatments that may cause infertility and premature ovarian failure depending on their cancer diagnosis.

Lindsay Nohr Beck is a cancer survivor who used oocyte cryopreservation before starting chemotherapy. She is the Founder and Executive Director of Fertile Hope, a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing reproductive information and support to cancer patients and survivors.

"Each year, more than 140,000 people are diagnosed with cancer during their childbearing years," said Ms. Nohr Beck. "The HOPE Registry is expected to substantiate egg freezing as an option, so that fertility is one less obstacle these patients may need to overcome in fulfilling their dreams of becoming a parent and living the lives they imagined prior to their cancer diagnosis." <
