Metabolic imaging via fluorescence lifetime imaging microscopy for egg and embryo assessment.

Fertil Steril 2019 Feb;111(2):212-218

Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Reproductive Science, Yale University, New Haven, Connecticut. Electronic address:

Current strategies for embryo assessment in the assisted reproductive technology laboratories rely primarily on morphologic parameters that have limited accuracy for determining embryo viability. Even with the addition of invasive diagnostic interventions such as preimplantation genetic testing for aneuploidy alone or in combination with mitochondrial DNA copy number assessment, at least one third of embryos fail to implant. Therefore, at a time when the clinical benefits of single ET are widely accepted, improving viability assessment of embryos is ever more important. Read More

Mitochondrial unfolded protein response: a stress response with implications for fertility and reproductive aging.

Fertil Steril 2019 Feb;111(2):197-204

Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Reproductive Sciences, Yale University, New Haven, Connecticut; Program in Integrative Cell Signaling and Neurobiology of Metabolism, Department of Comparative Medicine, New Haven, Connecticut; Department of Neuroscience, Yale School of Medicine, New Haven, Connecticut.

Mitochondria play a central role in the regulation of energy metabolism in oocytes and preimplantation embryos, where the number and morphology of mitochondria and mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) content are tightly regulated. A number of mouse models with mitochondrial dysfunction result in infertility, further confirming the key role of mitochondria in female reproductive function. When cells and organisms detect mitochondrial dysfunction they use response mechanisms directed at recovering salvageable mitochondria and eliminating mitochondria that can no longer be rescued.

Mitochondria as a tool for oocyte rejuvenation.

Fertil Steril 2019 Feb 2;111(2):219-226. Epub 2019 Jan 2.

IVI-RMA Valencia, Valencia, Spain; IVI Foundation, Valencia, Spain.

Ovarian aging leads to a decrease in the quantity and quality of oocytes. Aged oocytes have significantly reduced amounts of mitochondria, the energy factories of cells, leading to lower fertilization rates and poor embryonic development. Various techniques have tried to use heterologous or autologous sources of mitochondria to reestablish oocyte health by providing more energy. Read More

Mitochondrial DNA copy number as a predictor of embryo viability.

Fertil Steril 2019 Feb 2;111(2):205-211. Epub 2019 Jan 2.

Rey Juan Carlos University, Madrid, Spain; IVIRMA Madrid, Madrid, Spain. Electronic address:

The evaluation of embryo viability is typically based on morphologic and morphometric grading systems, which are known to be heavily affected by differences in subjective judgement. A significant proportion of euploid embryos do not implant even when the endometrium is normal, despite the wide incorporation of preimplantation genetic testing for aneuploidy. The need to improve reproductive outcomes following assisted reproductive treatments is culminating in the emergence of new research and technology with the potential to enhance embryo selection.

Classic congenital adrenal hyperplasia and its impact on reproduction.

Fertil Steril 2019 Jan;111(1):7-12

Unidade de Endocrinologia do Desenvolvimento, Laboratório de Hormônios e Genética Molecular/LIM42, Hospital das Clínicas, Disciplina de Endocrinologia, Faculdade de Medicina da Universidade de São Paulo, São Paulo, Brazil. Electronic address:

Women with classic congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH) can suffer from impaired fertility rates as a result of increased androgen secretion or impaired sex steroid production. In virilizing CAH forms, such as 21-hydroxylase and 11β-hydroxylase deficiency, the low reported pregnancy rate is mainly secondary to a diminished desire to conceive. Optimal glucocorticoid and/or mineralocorticoid replacement, sufficient to normalize androgen and P levels in the follicular phase, allows natural conception in most cases. Read More
