Researchers Shed New Light On Egg Freezing Success Rates

Researchers from New York Medical College and the University of California Davis have for the first time codified age-specific probabilities of live birth after in vitro fertilization (IVF) with frozen eggs.

A team of researchers led by Kutluk Oktay, M.D., a New York Medical College physician/scientist who specializes in preserving the fertility of female cancer patients, conducted a meta-analysis of oocyte cryopreservation cycles using individualized patient data to report the probability of live-birth from IVF cycles.

The study, “Age-specific probability of live birth with oocyte cryopreservation: an individual patient data meta-analysis,” was published in the online May issue of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine’s journal Fertility and Sterility.
