New study by Eugonia investigates optimal fertilization method


A new study was published, based on the extensive clinical data of Eugonia, in collaboration with Aristotle University of Thessaloniki.

It provides an answer to a constant clinical dilemma: which fertilization method (conventional IVF or ICSI)  should we use in patients with only one oocyte retrieved and normal sperm?

In contrast the common practice of many IVF units that use ICSI in these patients, their data show that fertilization, pregnancy and live birth rates do not differ between IVF and ICSI. The conclusion was that conventional IVF may be used when only one "precious" oocyte is available, in the presence of normal sperm.

In this way, Eugonia can avoid the unnecessary use of ICSI, which is a more invasive and more expensive fertilization method.

The study was published in the Journal of Assisted Reproduction and Genetics which is the official Journal of the American Society of Reproductive Medicine.
