Development of in vitro maturation techniques for clinical applications
In vitro maturation (IVM) refers to maturation in culture of immature oocytes at different stages that may or may not have been exposed to short courses of gonadotropins. The source of immature oocytes is an important feature for subsequent embryonic development, pregnancy, and healthy live births. IVM is an effective treatment that has already achieved significant outcomes of acceptable pregnancy and implantation rates and has led to the births of several thousand healthy babies. As the development of IVM treatment continues, an attractive possibility for improving the already successful outcome is to combine a natural-cycle in vitro fertilization (IVF) treatment with immature-oocyte retrieval followed by IVM of those immature oocytes.
