Fertility Centers of Illinois is Recruiting Patients for The MultiCenter Registry with Eeva™ (MERGE) Research Study

Chicago, IL (PRWEB) November 20, 2013

At Fertility Centers of Illinois, both the River North IVF Center and the Highland Park IVF Center began recruiting patients on November 11th for the MultiCenter Registry with Eeva (MERGE) Research Study.

“We are proud to be part of this Auxogyn sponsored clinical study utilizing the Eeva technology”, said Dr. Angeline Beltsos. “We are pleased to offer our patients the opportunity to participate in trials that can bring a deeper understanding of early embryo development to clinical practice.”

Eeva: The Early Embryo Viability Assessment Test, is an investigational test to be used by IVF laboratories to analyze early embryo development and to aid in the selection of the best embryo for transfer. At the heart of Eeva is software that was designed to assess critical differences in early embryo growth and determine an embryo’s viability and the potential for further development.

The Eeva Test was developed based on landmark research conducted at Stanford University (Wong et al. in Nature Biotechnology, 2010) which discovered that early embryo growth events can predict embryo development and reflect the underlying health of the embryo.

Auxogyn Inc. recently completed a multi-center clinical trial using Eeva with 54 patients and 758 embryos. The results from the trial supported that when embryologists used Eeva in conjunction with their traditional techniques, they were able to correctly identify non-viable embryos 86% of the time vs. only 58% of the time without using Eeva (Conaghan et al. Fertility & Sterility, May 2013).

The goal of the MERGE study (WIRB 20130148 (#11411512.0) is to record and evaluate the use of traditional embryo grading techniques combined with Eeva in the treatment of in vitro fertilization.

If you are interested in participating in this research study, please contact Fertility Centers of Illinois at (312) 222-8200, ext 23413, or FCIResearch(at)integramed(dot)com for more information.
