Mice techniques could improve IVF success4th January 2012
Researchers from Cardiff University have suggested that fertility techniques used in mice could be used to improve IVF success rates in women.
Using advanced imaging techniques, they have analysed the internal workings of the human egg to watch distinct rhythmic patterns that occur during fertilisation. It is hoped the findings from researchers at Cardiff University’s School of Medicine and published in the Fertility and Sterility journal, could reduce multiple births. The team worked with Oxford University for the HFEA-approved study, funded by the Wellcome Trust.
