Authors: Marco Melo, Cristiano E. Busso, José Bellver, Pilar Alama, Nicolas Garriso, Marcos Meseguer, Antonio Pellicer, José Remohí (Reproductive BioMedicine Online 2009; 19(4): 486-492) The use of GnRH agonists for triggering ovulation is still a controversy. Few reports are available on this issue. The primary objective was to evaluate the clinical outcome associated with GnRH […]
AFC can be utilized in the prediction of ovarian response, but can not predict the oocyte/ embryo quality or the IVF outcome in an egg donation program.

(Fertility and Sterility 2009; 91: 148-156) OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to verify whether the use of AFC could predict ovarian response, oocyte/embryo quality and IVF outcome. DESIGN: Prospective study SETTING: Instituto Universitario%u2014IVI, Valencia, Spain PATIENTS: 1,074 donors […]
Authors: Sérgio Reis Soares, Marco Melo (Current Opinion in Obstetrics and Gynecology- 2008; 20: 281-291) Purpose of the review: To perform a systematic review of the literature on the relationship between cigarette smoking and reproductive function. Whenever possible, this review is focused on the most recently published studies (mainly the last two years). However, in […]
Authors: Sérgio R. Soares, Marco Melo (Expert Review in Obstetrics and Gynecology- 2008; 3(4): 555-563) The goal of this text is to present a thorough review of the literature on the relationship between cigarette smoking and IVF cycles outcome, as well as the possible mechanisms through which tobacco constituents affect these cycles. Whenever possible, this […]
Authors: James Stachecki, John Garrisi, Sandro Sabino, et al. Reproductive Biomedicine Online, Vol: 17, 3, 360-367, 2008 Abstract This study examined a new method for vitrification of blastocysts that is safe, simple and easy to learn and use. Current vitrification techniques have shortcomings that include the use of dimethyl sulphoxide, one of the more toxic […]

DESIGN: Retrospective case-control study. SETTING: Instituto Universitario IVI, Valencia, Spain […]
Improvements achieved in an oocyte donation program over 10 years period: sequential increase in implantation and pregnancy rates and decrease in high-order multiple pregnancies.
Authors: Erdal Budak, Nicolas Garrido, Sérgio Reis-Soares, Marco Melo, Marcos Meseguer, Antonio Pellicer, José Remohí (Fertility and Sterility 2007; 88: 342-349) Objective: To compare cycle outcome parameters and cumulative pregnancy rates (CPR) in oocyte donation cycles over a period of 10 years. Design: Retrospective study from a computer database. Oocyte donation cycles with embryo transfer […]
Authors: José Bellver, Marco Melo, Ernesto Bosch, Vicente Serra, José Remohí, Antonio Pellicer (Fertility and Sterility 2007; 88: 446-451) OBJECTIVE: We have performed this study to analyze the potential role of extra-ovarian factors, like endometrium, in the reproductive outcome of obese patients. DESIGN: Retrospective study. SETTING: Instituto Universitario IVI, Valencia, Spain. PATIENTS: All first cycles […]
Authors: Nicolás Garrido, Marco Melo, Carlos Simón, José Remohí, Antonio Pellicer, Marcos Meseguer (Reproductive Medicine and Biology 2007; 6: 19-26) Our aim with this work was to identify the risk factors, their prognostic value on multiple pregnancies (MP) prediction and their thresholds in women undergoing controlled ovarian hyperstimulation (COH) with FSH and intrauterine insemination (IUI). […]
Authors: Cristiano E. Busso, Marco Melo, Manuel Fernadez, Carlos Simon (International Surgery 2006; 91(Suppl.5) S63-76) The recent advances in assisted reproduction have made possible to study and interfere in almost every step of the human reproductive process except for implantation. However, the most complex and important step remains in great part unknown. Implantation in human […]
