Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Rate of clinical pregnancy [ Time Frame: 5-8 weeks gestational age ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    To compare the rate of clinical pregnancy at approximately 5-8 weeks gestational age for the Day 3 embryo transfers that used Eeva predictions with morphology grading to that for Day 3 embryo transfers using morphology grading only (from a matched concurrent control group at each clinical site comprised of year 2011-2013 patients).


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Implantation rate (# of implanted embryos out of # of total embryos transferred) [ Time Frame: 5-8 weeks gestational age. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Ongoing Pregnancy Rate (gestational week 10-12) [ Time Frame: Gestational age week 10-12 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Multiple pregnancy rate [ Time Frame: Gestational weeks 5-8 and 10-12 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Spontaneous miscarriage rate [ Time Frame: Gestational age week 10-12 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Estimated Enrollment: 300

Estimated Study Completion Date: March 2014

Groups/Cohorts
Eeva Test Group
Day 3 embryo transfers that used Eeva predictions with morphology grading.
Matched case control group
Day 3 embryo transfers using morphology grading only (from a matched concurrent control group).

Detailed Description:

The purpose of this postmarket study is to gather data to evaluate the impact of using Eeva with traditional morphology grading on clinical pregnancy rates, as compared to a matched case control group that used morphology grading only to select embryos for transfer.

  Eligibility

Genders Eligible for Study:   Female
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Sampling Method:   Non-Probability Sample
