  1. 1. The Histidine-rich Glycoprotein in Reproduction

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Karin E Lindgren; Uppsala universitet.; [2016]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Angiogenesis; embryo culture medium; embryogenesis; embryonic secretome; endometrium; histidine-rich glycoprotein; human embryo development; human embryo implantation; human endometrial endothelial cells; in vitro fertilisation; infertility; male infertility; proximity extension assay; recurrent miscarriage; single nucleotide polymorphism; sperm quality; time-lapse technique; vascular endothelial growth factor;

    Abstract : Infertility affects 15% of reproductive-aged couples. The milieu surrounding the growing embryo is of outmost importance, and should be optimised during in vitro fertilisation (IVF). Many biological processes, such as angiogenesis, coagulation, and immune processes need to be well regulated for a pregnancy to occur and progress normally. READ MORE

  2. 2. Ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS). Aspects on immune and endocrine mechanisms

    University dissertation from Göteborg

    Author : Anders Enskog; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2000]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; controlled ovarian hyperstimulation; cytokine; inhibin; interleukin-10; in vitro fertilisation; ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome; nitric oxide; vascular endothelial growth factor;

    Abstract : The ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS) is a well-known side effect of ovarian stimulation for ovulation induction or for in vitro fertilisation. The syndrome is characterised by massively enlarged ovaries and a hyperpermeable/procoagulant state, giving rise to diverse symptoms such as abdominal pain, nausea, ascites, hypovolemia and thromboembolism.

  3. 3. Studies on in vitro fertilised human preembryos. Morphological and chromosomal aspects

    University dissertation from Göteborg

    Author : Thorir Hardarson; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2002]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; IVF; oocyte; embryo; blastocyst; human; FISH; aneuploidy;

    Abstract : The success rate of in vitro fertilisation (IVF) has gradually increased due to basic research in preembryonic biology and the introduction of new methods, both technical and medical. However, further research is needed to establish which preembryos are developmentally most competent in order to be able to maintain the pregnancy rate while only a single preembryo is being transferred.

  4. 4. Genetic studies in early embryos with emphasis on preimplantation genetic diagnosis

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Molecular Medicine

    Author : Erik Iwarsson; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2000]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; chromosomal abnormality 1 embryo fluorescent in situ hybridisation FISH 1 in vitro fertilisation IVF 1 preimplantation genetic diagnosis PGD ;

    Abstract : It has been estimated that as much as 70-80% of all human conceptions do not develop to term. A majority of clinically recognisable pregnancies, which are miscarried, contain chromosome abnormalities. However, data from very early embryo development are difficult to obtain. READ MORE

  5. 5. Human gonadotrophins for ovarian stimulation in infertility treatment

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Women's and Children's Health

    Author : Jonas Harlin; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2001]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Infertility problems are present in 10 to 15 % of couples of fertile age. Ovulatory dysfunction, as a single cause, can be successfully treated and in-vitro fertilisation (IVF) can help a considerable number of couples, also when male problems are present. READ MORE
