Monterrey, Mexico – The Center for Technological Innovation and Reproductive Medicine (Citmer) proudly Monterrey, has achieved the first pregnancies in the world with a new method of embryo culture more physiological, which prevents damage to embryos during their development in a laboratory of in vitro fertilization (IVF). The new procedure will allow women to have more and better embryos than before, giving them a better chance of achieving a pregnancy with their own oocytes, especially when patients have few oocytes.
The scientific director of Citmer Monterrey and CDMX, Israel Maldonado Rosas, said that the first results of this technique developed at Citmer in collaboration with the American Center for Reproductive Medicine of the prestigious Cleveland Clinic in USA, has helped more than 100 patients to achieve pregnancy after the application of this new method of more natural culture, Dr. Maldonado has scientifically demonstrated that his method is the most physiological in the world in terms of oxidative stress and these important results will be presented at the European Congress on Assisted Reproduction, one of the most important in the world, the European Society for Human Reproduction (ESHRE) and will be held in July 2019 in Vienna, Austria. Dr. Lina Villar, Medical Director of Citmer Reproductive Medicine, has mentioned that the relevant genetic validation studies have already been carried out and have been successfully concluded through the Pre-implantation Genetic Diagnosis. This type of culture had not been achieved with any other technique in the past despite the fact that it had already been tried several times, explains Dr. Maldonado, pioneer of this new culture system. What was achieved with this technique, was to get a culture system with much less stress for the embryos that develop in our laboratory and that until now was a worldwide need.
Unlike traditional culture systems, our new system is based on neutralizing the free radicals that are generated in the culture to physiological levels that are normally found in young and fertile women and that before this new methodology, affected the embryos in their development. With this we take even more care of the embryos during the in vitro culture, and they respond with better development and better pregnancy rates, added Biologist Israel Jimenez Medina.
All women who have already had previous failed treatments or with poor embryonic development during In Vitro Culture and wish to become mothers through Assisted Reproduction. Women who wish to cultivate their embryos in a more natural environment. Patients with low ovarian reserve, where more embryos of better morphological quality can be obtained.
Patients of 37 years of age or older develop more blastocysts with this new method to be transferred or genetically analyzed through Pre-implantation Genetic Diagnosis.
The cost of this more natural In Vitro process does not increase the prices of the Citmer Assisted Reproduction treatments.
Unique technology for our patients We want to be part of your history!
