New methods in IVF treatment at emBIO Medical Centre

emBIO is at the forefront of infertility developments and methods and they offer the following specialised treatments:

  • In vitro maturation - this requires no hormone therapy to produce large numbers of mature eggs; instead immature oocytes are retrieved from the womens ovary and are matured in the lab for 24-48 hours. The main advantage of this procedure is the exclusion of hormonal stimulation drugs or gonadotropins before collection as in a conventional IVF cycle.
  • Vitrification - a revolutionary new rapid freezing technique for eggs and embryos, which dramatically increases their survival rate. Human eggs have high water content and are therefore extremely fragile and sensitive to all freezing procedures. However, vitrification avoids the damage caused by crystal formation inside the cell increasing dramatically their survival rate.
  • Sickle-cell anaemia - a condition affecting a small percentage of African-Americans that results in painful, life-threatening blood clotting and infections. The red blood cells have an abnormal oxygen-carrying hemoglobin molecule that can cause the cell to change from its normal disc shape to a sickle shape that can get trapped in small blood vessels.
  • Assisted hatching - a procedure in which the outer layer of the embryo is either thinned or opened in order to facilitate hatching. In general this is preferred for women above the age of 40 and in patients with repeated implantation failures in IVF cycles.
