The international Congress of In Vitro Fertilization and exchange Assisted replica, held in Jerusalem, Israel, 2-7 April, 1989, was once the 6th within the series of those Congresses, yet was once the 1st to stress the main value and where of assisted reproductive applied sciences within the remedy of infertility.

The prime quality medical contributions to the Congress culminated within the ebook of this lawsuits. It embraces all-important features within the box of in vitro fertilization and exchange assisted replica. Papers on controversies and diversities of easy methods to stimulate the ovaries, imaging thoughts, simple learn and state of the art papers on ovarian body structure, the function of GnRH and its analog, scientific facets of IVF therapy and cryopreservation, up to date concepts in assisted reproductive applied sciences which are quick constructing along with IVF, have been incorporated. while may still IVF be superior to surgical procedure? What are the ex­ pected updated global effects and what are the mental, ethical, moral and spiritual implications? those are all of the matters of the treating workforce and are addressed right here. Male issue infertility is still a problematic challenge, yet advances within the figuring out of sperm-egg interplay, sperm overview and coaching are said. Micromanipulation emerges as a potential replacement to convey a few aid to this challenge, however it additionally grants to be principal in selling the sphere of prenatal genetic analysis.

This follicular growth can be maintained and continued despite the subsequent down regulation and the decrease in peripheral FSH levels. We have previously noted that follicles that have grown as a result of GnRH-a stimulation are capable of luteinizing normally and probably ovulating after the administration of an ovulatory dose of hCG (Bider et al. 1989). Cyst formation is a common pathology of GnRH-a treatment that can be directly attributed to the "flare up" effect of the analog. Cysts are formed regardless of whether GnRH-a is given during the follicular or luteal phase.

PAST PRESENT AND FUTURE OF GONADOTROPINS Bruno Lunenfeld Bar-Ilan University, and Institute of Endocrinology Chaim Sheba Medical Center, Ramat Gan 52621, Israel The cornerstone to the conquest of infertility was laid in the beginning of this century. It took however nearly 80 years of work of many scientists from allover the globe to slowly unravel the puzzle of nature's most guarded secret, the control of the reproductive processes.

The gonadotropin (or clomiphene) stimulated cycles are usually multifollicular and the estrogen levels represent the sum total of secretion of follicles being at different stages of development. In this situation, the pituitary may be forced to produce an LH surge despite the fact that the absolute levels of estradiol and the slope of its rise may not correlate with adequate maturity. 22 The incidence of premature luteinization differs in various reports. l 2. 23, 1A In our IVF program the cancellation rate due to suspected premature luteinization has been approximately 20%.
