1 A Practical Guide to Setting Up an IVF Lab, Embryo Culture Systems and Running the Unit 3733 0.00
Provides a complete review of the latest knowledge on how to set-up an IVF unit, detailed description of various embryo culture systems to give the best outcome in the day-to-day practice and finally the various organizational and quality control aspects The origin of the book stems from this need of present time. The authors have tried to assemble a group of international experts to make each chapter as a guide for both inexperienced and experienced IVF professionals for setting up a new clinic and running an existing unit in an efficient and effective way. The authors have adopted a systematic approach beginning with historical perspective, taking through designing, planning and constructing basic and advanced embryological laboratory, detailed overview of various laboratory procedures that are undertaken in an IVF laboratory on a day-to-day basis, the importance of quality control and quality management and future development in the embryology field. A chapter is dedicated to batching in IVF, where the editors assemble many troubleshooting tips for doing batch IVF, which is commonly practiced in many countries.
2 Oogenesis 2468 0.00
Comprehensive, visually stunning review of oocyte medicine and biology. The authors of the chapters are distinguished authorities in their respective areas of competence.  The oocyte is the largest and most mysterious cell in the body of mammalian organisms. Through its growth and maturation, it reaches extreme levels of specialization, while maintaining at the same time a condition of totipotency. Its unique ability, in co-operation with the spermatozoon, to give rise to a fully developed organism formed from hundreds of different tissues and myriads of individual cells has inspired intellectuals of all ages. Oogenesis finds impetus and purpose in casting scientific perspective towards this unique cell for the benefit of scientists and assisted reproductive technology (ART) specialists. The authors of the chapters are distinguished authorities in their respective areas of competence. From the opening of the book the reader is lead on a fantastic voyage from the formation of the primordial oocyte to the development of the early embryo, passing through crucial processes of oogenesis, such as co-ordination of oocyte and follicle growth, gene expression and organelle reorganization during growth and maturation, epigenetic mechanisms, regulation of meiosis, totipotency, cell polarity, oogenesis in vitro and maternal regulation of early development.

4 Sperm Chromatin- Biological and Clinical Applications in Male Infertility and Assisted Reproduction 4579 0.00
Sperm DNA damage is common and has been associated with reduced rates of conception, impaired embryonic development and increased risk of miscarriage. Although the exact causes of sperm DNA damage are unknown, it is clear that infertile men possess substantially higher levels of sperm DNA damage than do fertile men. Written by leading, internationally renowned clinicians and basic scientists with expertise in sperm DNA, Sperm Chromatin: Biological and Clinical Applications in Male Infertility and Assisted Reproduction provides readers with a thoughtful and comprehensive review of the biological and clinical significance of sperm DNA damage. The work covers the fundamental principles of sperm chromatin architecture and function, the proposed modes of DNA damage and repair, the tests of sperm DNA damage, the clinical aspects of DNA damage and the impact of DNA damage on reproductive outcome. Unlike any other title on the topic, Sperm Chromatin: Biological and Clinical Applications in Male Infertility and Assisted Reproduction is an invaluable addition to the literature and will serve as an indispensable resource for basic scientists with an interest in sperm biology and for urologists, gynecologists, reproductive endocrinologists, and embryologists working in the field of infertility.

6 Robert G. Edwards: A Personal Viewpoint 5133 0.00
his volume includes a unique personal history of participation in the original research in England on human in vitro fertilization. It is neither a comprehensive analysis of the career of Dr. Robert G. Edwards, the 2010 Nobel Laureate in Physiology or Medicine, nor of the writer, who is a physician-scientist expert in the field of assisted reproduction. It provides a true picture of the efforts and complexity behind an area of medical progress which has led to the births of several million babies worldwide. Not just limited to discussions of IVF, the book also illustrates some of the numerous challenges to innovation in the reproductive sciences and the difficulties of moving breakthrough reproductive technologies from the laboratory into widespread medical use.
7 Preservation of Human Oocytes 6662 0.00
A thorough analysis of current theoretical, biological, and clinical evidence generated on oocyte cryopreservation.This breakthrough title, written by experienced professionals in the field of reproductive medicine, is the must-have resource on oocyte preservation, which is quickly becoming one of the most important developments in human IVF.Certain to become the essential guide for reproductive medicine specialists, embryologists, and gynecologists, the text discusses benefits of oocyte storage for young cancer patients and women wishing to extend their reproductive lives for social, professional, or economical reasons.Topics include:• low temperature storage (cryopreservation and vitrification)• oocyte physiology• developmental stages in oocyte storage• success rates of oocyte preservation• ethics of fertility preservation• the health of babies from cryopreserved oocytes and embryos
8 Human Preimplantation Embryo Selection 19399 4.32
This book will assemble the leaders in this field to discuss their visions of dealing with the topic in the light of the limitations involving the fragility of the early human embryo. The purpose of this book is to shed light on the ever-expanding techniques that are being employed and evaluated with regard to embryo selection. A comprehensive overview may guide the ART practitioner in choice of techniques and evaluation of benefits and drawbacks. In summary, application of increasingly advanced new technology has allowed the field of embryo evaluation to evolve rapidly and dramatically over the past five years, and this book will provide an up-to-date overview and reference source.
9 Quality and Risk Management in the IVF Laboratory 11520 3.67
This essential survival guide for successfully managing the modern-day IVF clinic condenses a wealth of expertise and experience from the authors in troubleshooting and implementing quality management in the IVF laboratory. With high-profile media coverage of mistakes at IVF clinics, and escalating regulatory scrutiny, there is increasing pressure for professional accreditation. Modern accreditation schemes, which are largely based on the principles of ISO 9001 and related standards, require Quality Systems. Yet quality management beyond basic assay quality control is often poorly understood by biomedical scientists outside clinical chemistry laboratories. Quality and risk management are thus becoming hot topics for those working in IVF clinics and this book brings together, for the first time in one place, the basics of these essential aspects of laboratory management. The focus on taking a holistic approach to 'prophylactic management' - prevention rather than cure - will be welcomed by all scientists working in IVF.
10 In Vitro Fertilization: A Practical Approach 16961 4.33
Supplying a comprehensive and hands-on approach to in vitro fertilization (IVF), this source presents established state-of-the-art procedures and techniques, as well as the most current research in the field. Expert contributors explore the history of IVF and progress to future research pathways. Additional coverage includes preimplantation genetic diagnosis, oocyte retrieval, oocyte donation, and micromanipulation procedures such as ICSI, assisted hatching, and embryo biopsy.
