Webinar: Catastrophes: How do they impact our current perspectives on embryo production, cryopreservation and cryostorage management?

31 August 2020 by International IVF Initiative
Catastrophes: How do they impact our current perspectives on embryo production, cryopreservation and cryostorage management?

Tuesday 1 September, 2020. 8PM GMT / 9PM CET / 3PM EST
Moderators: Kimball Pomeroy, PhD and Dawn Kelk, PhD

"Cryostorage of Reproductive Tissues in the IVF Laboratory: ASRM Committee Opinion"
Sangita Jindal, PhD, HCLD
Summary: Catastrophic tank failures in recent years have reinforced the importance of cryogenic management in our embryo production laboratories. Based upon scientific principles and laboratory experience, best practices/minimal standards for safe and reliable storage of cryopreserved reproductive tissue have been proposed. Considering the emphasis in embryo vitrification and fertility preservation in the field of Reproductive Medicine, our goals are to optimize cryo-viability and effectively mitigate and eliminate embryo/gamete risks associated with cryopreservation and cryostorage.

"Cryopreservation and IVF in the Time of Covid-19: What is the Best Good Tissue Practice (GTP)?"
Mitchel C. Schiewe, MS, PhD, HCLD 
Unknown risks relating to the SARS-CoV-2 virus and sperm, ova and embryos necessitate a reexamining of how human IVF is performed. Over the last decade improvements in cryosurvival and live birth outcomes have been associated with zona pellucida breaching procedures (e.g., blastocyst collapsing and biopsying). In turn, today embryos are generally no longer protected by an intact zona pellucida when vitrified and in cryostorage. Additionally, high security storage containers have proven to be resilient to potential cross-contamination and reliable for routine human sperm freezing and embryo vitrification. 

Several options to current IVF practices are presented that can effectively mitigate the risks of cross-contamination and infection due to the current Covid-19 pandemic or other viral exposures. The question remains, is heightened security and change warranted where the risks of disease transmission likely remains negligible.

Article: Role of diagnostic intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) in the management of genetically determined zona pellucida-free oocytes during in vitro fertilization: a case report

27 August 2020 by Ahmad Metwalley

Purpose: To report the utilization of diagnostic intracytoplasmic sperm injection (D-ICSI), an ICSI cycle performed in the natural cycle, to obtain information about embryo development potential after sperm injection into zona pellucida (ZP)-free oocytes. Materials and Methods: We report the case of a couple with primary unexplained infertility with a history of previous failed, in vitro fertilization intracytoplasmic sperm injection (IVF-ICSI) cycles characterized by the presence of ZP-free oocytes. Whole exome sequencing (WES) was carried out to analyse the possible genetic basis of oocyte abnormality. Results: Diagnostic ICSI provided information about the embryo development potential from ZP-free oocytes and allowed better planning of the subsequent ICSI cycle. WES revealed that the absence of ZP was likely to be due to a new (ZP1) mutation. The subsequent ICSI cycle resulted in the delivery of a healthy baby. Discussion: To the best of our knowledge, our report is the first to describe the use of D-ICSI to determine the feasibility of embryo development and implantation in a patient with ZP1 mutation, resulting in the subsequent delivery of a healthy baby. We used ‘diagnostic’ ICSI in the normal menstrual cycle to explore the feasibility of embryo development after sperm injection into ZP-free oocytes. Our results may expand the spectrum of diagnostic procedures associated with unexplained infertility.
