The Medical Benefits Of Stem Cell Therapy by quiact Posted Wed 01 Apr 2009 3:06pm Over 100 years ago, a Russian histologist suggested stem cells be applied for scientific research. They are the human body’s equivalent of a generator, as they can renew, regenerate, and replicate under the right conditions. The apex of cellular therapy and regenerative/reparative medicine has been reborn after an 8 year moratorium that basi ... Read on »
The Road to Blastocyst: Eggs and Embryos by Dr. Fred Licciardi Medical Doctor Posted Tue 28 Apr 2009 1:41pm This is the first installment of blastocyst blog; but it's a bit of a pre-requisite. To give you a feel of where we are going, I will start with pictures of eggs and embryos and then blastocysts. This is an egg. I doesn't really look like an egg. Part of the reason for this is that in this picture there are hundre ... Read on »

At home with our two little embryos by Shona D. Posted Fri 04 Mar 2011 8:27am   Two pre-morulas on day 4  Here are our two embryos.  They are pre-morulas on day four, which means they are slightly behind schedule but not very much.  Ideally an embryo would be a morula on day 4 and then a blastocyst on day 5. The stages of our embryos Before the transfer yesterday, the embryologist S ... Read on »
IVF with PGD cycle 3 - the successful one by Shona D. Posted Sun 19 Dec 2010 3:20pm In vitro fertilisation (IVF) cycle three began much the same as my previous IVF cycles.  I had a slow response to the drugs but eventually managed to get a decent number of eggs (12, only 10 of which could have Intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) performed on them as two were immature).  On the day of the embryo transfer we were told the best ...

Second cycle of IVF with pre-implantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) by Shona D. Posted Sun 12 Dec 2010 6:35pm I am a mathematical person and I am sure that helped me cope with IVF cycle one failing.  On average after embryo transfer there was only supposed to be a 30% chance of it leading to a viable pregnancy (success rates are higher than 30% now but that is what they were at the time).  Therefore, the fact that it had failed didn’t mean there was anyt ...

What Can Blastocyst Do For You? by Dr. Fred Licciardi Medical Doctor Posted Tue 28 Apr 2009 1:41pm 1 Comment The advantage of a day 5 blastocyst transfer has to do with selection. These days most reputable programs are putting 2 embryos back in youngish women (I know what you’re thinking, but we’ll skip the octo discussion). Anyway, let’s say you’re lucky and have 5 nice embryos on day 3. Even though some may look a litter nicer than others, we really may ... Read on »
