Instituto Bernabeu discovers that natural antioxidants found in bay leaves and cinnamon improve spermatozoa quality

  • 10-01-2018

Instituto Bernabeu research presented at the 9th edition of the Congress of the Society for the Study of Reproduction Biology (ASEBIR) held in Madrid found that the natural antioxidant cinnamtannin B1 present mainly in bay leaves and cinnamon protects spermatozoa from DNA damage. This natural protector increases the ability to fertilise the ovum and improves the quality of the embryos that are generated.

Instituto Bernabeu applies new technique to detect alterations in sperm production

  • 27-12-2017

At the Association for the Study of Reproduction Biology (ASEBIR)'s 9th Congress held in Madrid, Instituto Bernabeu introduced a research paper focusing on checking the MLPA (Multiplex Ligation-dependent Probe Amplification) technique's sensitivity levels in order to find out how specific alterations can affect sperm production. Our investigation entitled: "New technique to detect Y chromosome microdeletion (YCM): Clinical implications” was based on the fact that Y chromosomes comprise different genetic regions involved with spermatogenesis or sperm production. In the event that one of these regions, also known as AZF, was deleted or duplicated, this could result in either a low amount or the complete absence of sperm.

Instituto Bernabeu research studies the relationship between morphological characteristics of the embryo and mosaicism

  • 15-12-2017

Instituto Bernabeu presented research work in poster format at the 9th edition of the Congress of the Association for the Study of Reproduction Biology (Asebir) held in Madrid in November. The research is based on data obtained from observing if there is a relationship between the morphological characteristics of an embryo, in accordance with Asebir criteria, and the presence of mosaicism in blastocyst biopsies.

Instituto Bernabeu researches whether or not oocyte retrieval and maturation can be linked to embryo aneuploidy and mosaicism rates

  • 13-12-2017

Instituto Bernabeu has presented research work entitled 'Is there a relationship between oocyte retrieval and maturation, and embryo aneuploidy and mosaicism rates?' at the 9th edition of the Congress of the Association for the Study of Reproduction Biology (ASEBIR). The research focuses on the relationship between the number of oocytes retrieved and matured following ovarian puncture and rates of embryo aneuploidy and mosaicism (chromosomal and cellular abnormalities).

An Instituto Bernabeu study to detect chromosomal abnormalities in the embryo sparks the interest of the congress for the Study of Reproduction Biology

  • 29-11-2017

Instituto Bernabeu has delivered research work on the detection of chromosomal mosaicism in embryos using next generation sequencing (NGS) and its influence on birth rates to the Association for the Study of Reproduction Biology (ASEBIR) congress to be held in Madrid. Thanks to this complex technique, the researchers have proven that low-grade mosaicism in the embryo does not affect the birth of healthy children to a significant degree.
