Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Incidence of aneuploidy rate by fluorescence in situ hybridisation (FISH) technique in 6 to 8 cell embryos from prolonged (PMC) IVM compared to conventional IVM on sibling oocytes. [ Time Frame: 3 days after egg retrieval ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Implantation potential of embryos from conventional IVM performed on Type II COC. Efficiency of both maturation systems in obtaining blastocysts. Endometrium quality in IVM cycles. [ Time Frame: 7 days after egg retrieval ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Estimated Enrollment: 20
Study Start Date: January 2009
Estimated Primary Completion Date: April 2009 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: in-vitro maturation of oocytes Procedure: prematuration culture
The aneuploidy rate and the developmental potential of embryos obtained from PDE3 inhibitor-treated oocytes (a "prolonged" IVM (PMC)) in comparison to "conventional" IVM will be analysed. It is intended to assess the nuclear and cytogenetic constitution of the obtained embryos.
