Texas Fertility Center Introduces Oncofertility Education Program for Physicians and Patients
Date:4/2/2013

Austin, TX (PRWEB) April 02, 2013

A new delivery method for chemotherapy drugs shows promise in protecting a woman’s ovaries and oocytes (eggs) from the damaging side effects of cancer treatment. Nanoparticle arsenic-based drug treatment, designed by scientists at Northwestern Medicine®, works like a Trojan horse to attack cancer cells without destroying healthy tissues, organs and future fertility.

The lab-tested arsenic trioxide breakthrough will potentially help reduce “fertotoxicity,” but what about young men and women currently scheduled to begin cancer treatment?

Texas Fertility Center offers men and women the option of removing and storing sperm or eggs prior to scheduled chemotherapy and cancer treatment that can cause permanent sterility. Sperm preservation can be started the same day that a male patient contacts TFC requesting storage. Oocyte preservation involves a fast-track fertility treatment cycle of ovulation induction using fertility drugs, and an outpatient egg retrieval procedure. The entire process, from consultation to egg storage, can be performed in as few as 10 days, and need not interfere with cancer treatment schedules.

“We are closely watching this trioxide development, but will continue to focus on providing a safety net for concerned men and women currently starting chemotherapy”, says Dr. Thomas Vaughn, a Reproductive Endocrinologist with Texas Fertility Center. “When a couple calls us for help after a cancer diagnosis, we reassure them that sperm or egg freezing can offer them the chance to preserve their future fertility”.
