  1. 1. Preimplantation genetic diagnosis : evaluation of results and experiences

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Molecular Medicine and Surgery

    Author : Katarina Haapaniemi Kouru; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2015]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) is an established alternative for couples at high risk of having an affected child, with the advantage that the genetic testing is performed at the embryo stage and the couple can thereby avoid a pregnancy termination of an affected foetus. The disadvantage is that an IVF treatment is required, which can be a stressful experience. READ MORE

  2. 2. 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]

    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

  3. 3. Human ovarian follicles and oocytes : Collection, cryopreservation, culture and gene expression

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Clinical Sciences

    Author : Pu Zhang; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2005]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Ovarian follicle; oocyte; follicular aspirate; organ culture; cAMP; cGMP; cryopreservation; microarray; human gene expression; embryonic stem cell; preimplantation;

    Abstract : Infertility affects approximately 15% of couples globally. The most effective treatment today is in vitro fertilization. However, not all couples can be helped with the current techniques. To achieve better success, techniques of storage and in vitro maturation of ovarian follicles have to be improved. READ MORE

  4. 4. New micromanipulative techniques in reproductive biology

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Clinical Sciences

    Author : José Inzunza; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2003]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : New micro manipulative techniques have facilitated development to help patients who suffer from infertility and spontaneous abortion, as well as those who carry severe genetic diseases and have risks of delivering an affected child. Preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD), which is based on obtaining blastomere biopsy from an eight-cell embryo, has made it possible to diagnose severe defects caused by a genetic factor.

  5. 5. Human endometrial receptivity and embryo-endometrium interactions

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Clinical Science, Intervention and Technology

    Author : Signe Altmäe; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2011]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Infertility is an increasing medical and social problem affecting more than 10% of couples worldwide. Many underlying causes of human infertility have been overcome by assisted reproductive techniques; nevertheless, the implantation process remains one of the rate-limiting step as regards the success of the treatment.
