Date:3/15/2012

ORLANDO, Fla., March 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The Center for Reproductive Medicine (CRM) announced today another successful healthy baby delivery from Egg Freezing. The procedure requires a woman's eggs (Oocytes) to be retrieved and then frozen via state-of-the-art technique, called vitrification.

The technique utilizes a fast-freezing process that eliminates ice crystals on the egg that could severely damage the egg's chromosomes when thawed. This approach eliminates the drawback of ice crystals which has hindered egg freezing procedures in the past.

The first successful baby delivery by CRM of a vitrified egg was in July of 2011.  CRM is offering egg freezing for women diagnosed with cancer who want to preserve their fertility prior to cancer therapy, patients suffering from chronic diseases (such as endometriosis), and for other reasons. 

Dr. Sejal Dharia Patel, states, "About 130,000 Americans under the age of 45 are diagnosed with cancer each year and approximately 70,000 of them are women. We have been very pleased with our initial success in our fertility preservation program and look forward to continued success as the indication expands."

Dr. Patel, goes on to say, "Women have a precious window of time to protect their chances for a future family. Egg freezing may help to expand that time window. The team at CRM is dedicated in providing the most comprehensive information and optimized fertility treatment care suited for the specific needs of these patients."

About Fertility Preservation via Vitrification

As of 2011, over 1000 babies have been born worldwide from egg freezing.
