Infertility treatments in Italy
The Centres in Italy offer all the state of the
art treatments from IVF, ICSI, IMSI, TESE, through assisted hatching,
blastocyst culture and pre- implantation genetic diagnosis, in a caring and
attentive environment. For cases of repetitive IVF failures and recurrent
abortion, CFA offers Intralipid Infusion Therapy.
Laboratory know-how and innovations are at the
forefront of CFA activities thanks
to the background and training of its founder and director. Professor Brian Dale, Ph. D., D, Sc., FSB,
FRCPath., has published over 130 scientific papers and 7 books in the field
of reproduction and is also co-inventor of USA patents with Jacques Cohen for
air purifying equipment used worldwide to improve human embryo quality in IVF
has a well-established oocyte
vitrification programme. With births from November 2006, this is of prime
importance for patients receiving chemotherapy, avoiding litigation and embryo
paternity and of course for extended fertility (deferring childbirth while
conserving reproductive potential).
The staff at CFA were the first in Italy to
introduce IMSI to improve the
outcome of ICSI, where the spermatozoon selected for microinjection is screened
at very high magnification. Analysis of DNA fragmentation and de-condensation in
sperm is routine and research is ongoing to improve the physiological selection
of viable spermatozoa.
have considerable experience with women over 40 years of age who have either
left childbirth to a later date by choice or have a history of repeated IVF
failure or a recurrent miscarriage. Our protocols are both clinical, including
specific diagnostic screening, age related therapies and stimulation, and
embryological, including ways of improving embryo development and implantation.
