New Survey Reveals How to Build Stronger Fertility Patient-Provider Relationships

A new survey from pregnantish, co-sponsored by EMD Serono and CooperSurgical, uncovers the key reasons why patients leave their fertility clinics and reveals the importance of doctor-patient relationship-building as a key factor to patient retention.

Pregnancy Complications in Assisted Reproduction Linked to a Specific Process

An experimental study from researchers in the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania links a specific procedure – embryo culture – that is part of the assisted reproduction process (ART) to placental abnormalities, risk for preeclampsia, and abnormal fetal growth. The team, led by Marisa Bartolemei, PhD, a professor of Cell and Developmental Biology, published their findings today in Development.
