Human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) is used to promote final oocyte (egg cell) maturation for IVF. For ease of administration and improved patient tolerance, use of subcutaneous (SC) Ovidrel instead of intramuscular (IM) u-hCG has been used in women undergoing egg retrieval for oocyte donation. However, a decrease in serum hCG levels, a measure of patient compliance with the drug therapy, was noted after Ovidrel self-administration. The researchers conducted a retrospective cohort study to determine if the lower hCG levels associated with Ovidrel were associated with any measurable detrimental effects on the oocytes or resulting embryos. They found that Ovidrel injection resulted in significantly lower serum hCG levels compared to u-hCG and these levels did not correlate with BMI. And, despite lower serum hCG levels, all clinical outcome parameters were statistically identical. Thus, SC Ovidrel can be reliably used for oocyte donation.
  • Good News for Female Cancer Patients Seeking to Save Their Eggs. "Favorable Clinical Outcomes Attained in Young Cancer Patients Undergoing Oncofertility Treatments" by Drs. Bo Yu, Nataki C. Douglas, Janet Choi and Mark V. Sauer.
    Cancer is commonly diagnosed in women of reproductive age who may desire to freeze (cryopreserve) their eggs or embryos prior to undergoing chemotherapy, radiation or extirpative surgery. The researchers compared the clinical outcomes of cancer patients undergoing egg retrieval with age-matched controls, in order to ascertain if their underlying illness affected their reproductive performance. They found that cancer patients experienced a reasonable response to ovulation induction and as a result, had similar mature oocytes harvested as age-matched controls. The fertilization rate was comparable to controls and all patients successfully achieved embryos or oocytes for cryopreservation despite their illness and the requisite expedited approach to care. Therefore, female patie
