Importance of clinical trials for the discovery of new drugs and therapies in Reproductive Medicine

For a new drug to be marketed and used in humans,
research must be preceded by laboratory studies and animal experimentation. If
under these conditions the study drug meets the established requirements, it
can begin to be tested in people through clinical trials.

What are clinical trials?

A clinical trial is a research study that is carried
out in humans with […]

Pharmacogenetics for the treatment of low ovarian response

The application of pharmacogenetics to ovarian stimulation will specially benefit women with low ovarian response.

What is pharmacogenetics?

There are many variables
that can modify the effects of the drugs on each person and, among them, there
are genetic factors. In recent years it became evident that the genetic profile
of patients can explain the differences in response to drugs […]

Is ovary size important?

As is the case with all the organs in our bodies, over our lifetime, ovaries go through changes that affect not only their size but also how they perform. The ovaries are situated between the uterus and the fallopian tubes. They are essential to reproduction and, therefore, to the survival of the human race.

The ovaries begin to develop when female embryos are around 8 weeks old and during pregnancy they undergo a number of changes that prepare them for their role in reproduction when a woman is in her childbearing years.
