Arch Gynecol Obstet 2019 Apr 11. Epub 2019 Apr 11.

Faculty of Medicine, Institute of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, University of Debrecen, Debrecen, Hungary.

Endometrial human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) expression is a marker for adequate secretory transformation of the endometrium.

Arch Gynecol Obstet 2019 Apr 6. Epub 2019 Apr 6.

Research Laboratory of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Division of Human Reproduction and Endocrinology, Medical School, University of Leipzig, Semmelweisstr. 14, 04103, Leipzig, Germany.

Purpose: Successful embryo implantation into the endometrium depends on embryonic characteristics and proper endometrial development. Reproductive medicine often focuses on embryo quality, whereas reliable diagnostic tests for endometrial receptivity are still needed. We previously found that human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG), one of the earliest proteins secreted by the embryo, was also expressed by the luteal phase endometrium around the implantation window.

Novel circular RNA expression in the cumulus cells of patients with polycystic ovary syndrome.

Arch Gynecol Obstet 2019 Apr 2. Epub 2019 Apr 2.

Centre for Reproductive Medicine, Yantai Yuhuangding Hospital Affiliated to Qingdao University, Yantai, Shandong, People's Republic of China.

Purpose: Circular RNAs (circRNAs) mediate the posttranscriptional regulation of multiple genes by functioning as microRNA (miRNA) sponges. This study aimed to detect the novel expression of circRNAs in the cumulus cells (CCs) of polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) patients and their potential significance in the pathogenesis of PCOS.

Methods: circRNAs in the CCs from 6 PCOS patients and 6 normal control individuals were collected for microarray analysis, and an independent cohort study including 25 PCOS patients and 25 normal control individuals was conducted to validate the circRNA microarray results using quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction (qRT-PCR).

Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Nanfang Hospital, Southern Medical University, No. 1838, Guangzhou Avenue, Guangzhou, 510515, China.

Objective: To present the distribution of neurovascular and lymphatic vessels in uterine ligaments using 3D models based on the pathological staining of serial 2D sections of postoperative specimens.

Methods: Serial transverse sections of fresh uterine ligaments from a patient with stage IB1 cervical squamous cell carcinoma were studied using the computer-assisted anatomic dissection (CAAD) technique.

Arch Gynecol Obstet 2019 Apr 9;299(4):1201-1212. Epub 2019 Mar 9.

Reproductive Medicine Research Center, Sixth Affiliated Hospital of Sun Yat-sen University, NO.17, Shougouling Rd, Guangzhou, 510275, China.

Purpose: To evaluate the efficacy in suppressing the premature LH surge, embryo quality and pregnancy outcomes of progestin-primed ovarian stimulation (PPOS) protocols using medroxyprogesterone acetate versus utrogestan in women of all ages undergoing in vitro fertilization or intracytoplasmic sperm injection.

Methods: 1188 patients were enrolled in the retrospective study, of which 1002 patients were treated with medroxyprogesterone acetate (M group) and recombinant follicle-stimulating hormone (r-FSH)simultaneously from day 3 of the cycle until trigger day, while 186 patients were treated with utrogestan (U group) and r-FSH instead. Viable embryos were cryopreserved for later transfer in both groups. Read More
