BACKGROUND: Human papillomavirus (HPV) has been considered as one of the most common sexually transmitted viruses that may be linked to unexplained infertility in men. The possible mechanisms underlying correlation between HPV infection and infertility could be related to the altered sperm parameters. Current studies have investigated the effect of HPV seminal infection on sperm quality in infertile men, but have shown inconsistent results. METHODS: We systematically searched PubMed, Embase, Web...

BACKGROUND: We had previously demonstrated that vitrification reduces the levels of certain phospholipid classes, and that oocytes from aged mice show a similar lipidome alteration, even without vitrification. In the current investigation, we examined if vitrification-warming of mouse oocytes from young and aged mice causes any changes in molecular aspects of lipid-associated features. METHODS: Metaphase II (MII) stage oocytes were harvested from young (10-14-week-old) and aged (45-54-week-old) ...

BACKGROUND: The endometrial preparation during frozen embryo transfer (FET) can be performed by natural cycle (NC), hormone replacement therapy (HRT) cycle and cycle with ovulation induction (OI). Whether different FET preparation protocols can affect maternal and neonatal outcomes is still inconclusive. METHODS: This was a retrospective cohort study that included 6886 women who delivered singleton live birth babies after 28 weeks of pregnancy underwent FET from January, 2015 to July, 2018. Wome...

BACKGROUND: The purpose of this study was to assess whether increased body mass index (BMI) negatively affects assisted reproductive technology (ART) outcomes among gestational carriers. METHODS: A retrospective matched case-control cohort, including all gestational carrier (GC) cycles performed at CReATe Fertility Centre (Toronto, ON, Canada) between 2003 and 2016. SETTING: A Canadian fertility clinic, with a large surrogacy program. PATIENTS: All gestational carriers that had undergone a cycle...

BACKGROUND: Abnormal androgen receptor (AR) genes can cause androgen insensitivity syndrome (AIS), and AIS can be classified into complete androgen insensitivity syndrome (CAIS), partial androgen insensitivity syndrome (PAIS) and mild AIS. We investigated the characteristics of clinical manifestations, serum sex hormone levels and AR gene mutations of 39 AIS patients, which provided deeper insight into this disease. METHODS: We prospectively evaluated 39 patients with 46, XY disorders of sex dev...

BACKGROUND: Assisted reproductive technology (ART) insurance mandates resulted in improved access to infertility treatments like intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI). Our objective was to examine whether ART insurance mandates demonstrate an increased association with ICSI use. METHODS: In this retrospective cohort study, clinic-specific data for 2000-2016 from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) were grouped by state and subgrouped by the presence and extent of ART state insurance mandates...

BACKGROUND: The interface between environmental risk factors and genetic factors could contribute to the pathogenesis of hyperandrogenism and insulin resistance in polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS); however, the underlying complex mechanism remains to be elucidated. METHODS: We used dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA)-induced PCOS-like rat model to measure circadian clock genes and insulin resistance-related genes. Additionally, we performed in vitro experiments in mature adipocytes to verify the molec...

BACKGROUND: A number of microRNAs are aberrantly expressed in endometriosis and are involved in its pathogenesis. Our previous study demonstrated that has-miR-100-5p expression is enhanced in human endometriotic cyst stromal cells (ECSCs). The present study aimed to elucidate the roles of has-miR-100-5p in the pathogenesis of endometriosis. METHODS: Normal endometrial stromal cells (NESCs) were isolated from normal eutopic endometrium without endometriosis. Using hsa-miR-100-5p-transfected NESCs...

BACKGROUND: Onset of spermatogenesis at puberty is critically dependent on the activity of hypothalamic-pituitary-gonadal axis and testosterone production by Leydig cells. The aim of this study was to examine whether activation of Notch receptors and expression of Notch ligands and effector genes in rat seminiferous epithelium are controlled by androgen signaling during puberty. METHODS: Peripubertal (5-week-old) Wistar rats received injections of flutamide (50 mg/kg bw) daily for 7 days to redu...

BACKGROUND: Chronic cyclic pelvic pain (CCPP) affects women's quality of life and pituitary downregulation is often used for symptomatic relief. However, prolonged suppression of ovarian function is associated with menopausal side effects and can lead to osteoporosis. Currently, the use of gonadotropin releasing hormone agonists (GnRHa) for treatment of CCPP is usually restricted to 6-9 months, limiting their efficacy. There is limited information regarding safety and efficacy with longer-term u...
