LH/HCG Receptor Expression and Retrieval Rates
The purpose of this study is to evaluate if there is an association between the serum LH receptor expression on the day of hCG administration or the day of oocyte retrieval and the retrieval rates at oocyte pick up
|Study Design:||Observational Model: Cohort
Time Perspective: Prospective
|Official Title:||Association of LH/HCG Receptor Expression and Retrieval Rates at Oocyte Pick up.|
- LH/hCG receptor expression [ Time Frame: at oocyte retrieval ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
|Study Start Date:||January 2007|
|Estimated Study Completion Date:||January 2016|
|Estimated Primary Completion Date:||January 2016 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
The purpose of this study is to evaluate if there is an association between the serum LH receptor expression on the day of hCG or the day of oocyte retrieval and the retrieval rates at oocyte pick up.
For this purpose, m-RNA copy numbers will be assessed in the blood serum of patients undergoing ovarian stimulation for IVF on different days.
Furthermore, detailed ultrasound scans will be perfomed, as well as assesment of hormonal levels during ovarian stimulation.
