IVF success rates boost

10th August 2011

Scientists from Cambridge University hope that a technique to identify strong embryos could help increase in vitro fertilisation (IVF) success rates.

Currently, IVF success rates stand at about 30% with multiple pregnancies being quite common but the researchers hope that by studying the movement of eggs soon after fertilisation to predict survival chances, they can help take some of the trauma out of the treatment. Professor Magdalena Zernicka-Goetz said it was important to be able to quantitate some indication of the health of embryos at the earliest possible stage.
