    Abstract : Background: With the expansion of IVF into general clinical practise during the 1980's and 1990's, the interest to identify and compare costs of different infertility treatments increased and, in many countries there is an ongoing debate about whether or not in vitro fertilisation (IVF) and other assisted reproductive techniques (ART) should be covered by national health insurance schemes. Objective: The aim of the present study was to examine aspects of cost in relation to effectiveness and benefits of infertility treatment, with particular emphasis on in-vitro fertilisation.

    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
