RMA of New York Publishes Study on Reducing Multiples Resulting From IVF

In the competitive IVF industry we live in today, there are IVF centers out there that may, in an attempt to improve apparent success rates, transfer a greater number of embryos. The actual physical, emotional, and financial costs of this strategy may be far greater than realized because of the increased morbidity that is associated with multiple pregnancies. Given that multiple gestation is the greatest risk factor for premature delivery, it is logical to conclude that a cavalier attitude toward multiples will lead to significant future neonatal morbidity, if not mortality.

The current method of calculating IVF success rates considers multiple gestations and prematurely delivered infants to be successes, rather than failures. Patients may see multiple births as an acceptable outcome and may even construe multiple gestations as actualizing a better return on their financial investment. They may be less aware about the greater risk of neonatal morbidity and pregnancy loss. When patients evaluate IVF programs on the basis of Centers for Disease Control and Prevention-reported data, they may conclude that a program with a higher success rate may be preferable to a program with a reduced success rate, even if the latter program has a very low multiple-pregnancy rate.

RMA of New York Participates in HOPE Study for Egg Freezing Patients

RMA of New York is participating in EMD Serono's Human Oocyte Preservation Experience (HOPE) Registry, an observational study undertaken to evaluate the safety and efficacy of oocyte cryopreservation echniques.  The HOPE Registry aims to track the outcome of oocyte cryopreservation cycles from participating cycles around the country and to validate the efficacy of the different techniques used to freeze and thaw eggs. Results of safety and efficacy of egg freezing techniques along with pregnancy outcomes resultant from the thawing of cryopreserved eggs will be published for public access upon completion of the study.

Stated Dr. Alan Copperman in a press release: "We need to validate the safety and efficacy of egg freezing for it to become a more widely available option for women who for a variety of reasons would like to preserve their fertility. The HOPE Registry is an exciting vehicle that will assist us in the evidence-gathering process and will facilitate the furthering of the science and the acceptance of oocyte cryopreservation as an effective clinical practice."
