IVF clinical trials Australia
IVFAustralia currently has a leading clinical research programme involving a wide range of research projects. Our priority is to take some of the extraordinary advances in the basic science and understanding of reproduction and turn these into real developments that will help our patients to achieve that much-wanted pregnancy.
Our work falls into a number of current areas:
Refining the treatments that we give our patients
Studying the role of a hormone supplement, recombinant Luteinising Hormone (LH), in patients who have been shown to have a deficiency in LH during their IVF/ICSI treatment.
- Studying the effect of an elevated progesterone concentration at the time of egg collection on the success rate from IVF.
- Studying the effects of acupuncture on IVF. In a randomised controlled trial, in collaboration with Professor Smith of the University of NSW, the effects of acupuncture on both the immune processes associated with successful implantation as well as the success rate itself are being studied.
- Assessing the novel possibility that disrupting the lining of the uterus (the endometrium) in the cycle before IVF may increase the success rate of IVF.
- Assessment of the acceptability of a new improved form of pen for administration of FSH during IVF.
- Studying the significance of the egg number test (AMH) in predicting the response to IVF.
