Article: Sperm DNA Fragmentation – A New Guideline

16 August 2020 by Professor Ashok Agarwal
Sperm DNA Fragmentation – A New Guideline

Our goal in writing this guideline article was to summarize the rapid advancements in SDF measurement and propose specific clinical indications in an evidence-based approach. Subsequently, the literature on SDF testing, including etiologies, risk factors, laboratory assays, implications on reproductive outcomes and appropriate clinical management has expanded dramatically.

Article: Luteinizing hormone–independent rise of progesterone as the physiological trigger of the ovulatory gonadotropins surge in the human

16 August 2020 by Dmitri I. Dozortsev, MD, PhD & Michael P. Diamond, MD
Luteinizing hormone–independent rise of progesterone as the physiological trigger of the ovulatory gonadotropins surge in the human

Trigger of ovulation is one of the corner stones of reproductive medicine. For the last several decades estradiol held a firm position as a hormone at the upstream of the GnRH pathway that culminates in the release of gonadotropins that cause a follicle to rupture. Progesterone also looked like a promising candidate, but there were two major obstacles to accepting this possibility. The first one is its well known property to block ovulation, which makes it a main component of every birth control pill. The second obstacle was even more formidable: it was convincingly shown that estradiol can trigger ovulatory gonadotropins (LH and FSH) surge in castrated females, who are completely lacking ovaries and therefore have no endogenous ovarian progesterone. Our work for the first time resolves both of those roadblocks on a path of recognizing progesterone's ability to trigger ovulation and proposes a new ovulation paradigm.

News: Frozen IVF embryos do not increase chance of pregnancy

11 August 2020 by Christina Burke

The use of frozen rather than fresh embryos in IVF does not increase the chance of a successful pregnancy, newly published data shows.

The findings discourage the 'freeze-all' strategy adopted by some fertility clinics in recent years. They thought that using frozen embryos rather than immediately transferring fresh embryos to the uterus allows patients' bodies more time to recover from disruptive hormonal treatment required in IVF and intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) cycles.

News: How human sperm really swim

11 August 2020 by Bernie Owusu-Yaw
How human sperm really swim

Research using high-precision 3D microscopy has overturned 350-year-old observations about how sperm swim. 

Antoine van Leeuwenhoek, a pioneer of 2D microscopy described human sperm cells swimming by lashing their tails from side to side 'like that of a snake or an eel swimming in water'. However, a recent study has shown this was due to an optical illusion. Researchers from Bristol and Mexico discovered that human sperm cells actually move by lashing their tails to one side.
