In this study the clinical and neo-natal outcomes after transfer of blastocysts derived from oocytes containing aggregates of smooth endoplasmic reticulum (SER) were compared between IVF and intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) cycles. Clinical and neo-natal outcomes of blastocysts in cycles with at least one SER metaphase II oocyte (SER + MII; SER + cycles) did not significantly differ between the two insemination methods. When SER + MII were cultured to day 5/6, fertilization, embryo cleavage and blastocyst rates were not significantly different between IVF and ICSI cycles. In vitrified-warmed blastocyst transfer cycles, the clinical pregnancy rates from SER + MII in IVF and ICSI did not significantly differ. In this study, 52 blastocysts (27 IVF and 25 ICSI) derived from SER + MII were transferred, yielding 15 newborns (5 IVF and 10 ICSI) and no malformations. Moreover, 300 blastocysts (175 IVF and 125 ICSI) derived from SER-MII were transferred, yielding 55 newborns (24 IVF and 31 ICSI cycles). Thus, blastocysts derived from SER + cycles exhibited an acceptable ongoing pregnancy rate after IVF (n = 125) or ICSI (n = 117) cycles. In conclusion, blastocysts from SER + MII in both IVF and ICSI cycles yield adequate ongoing pregnancy rates with neo-natal outcomes that do not differ from SER-MII. © 2017 Reproductive Healthcare Ltd.

There have been no studies analyzing the effect of large aggregates of tubular smooth endoplasmic reticulum (aSERT) after conventional in vitro fertilization (cIVF). The aim of this study was to investigate whether aSERT can be identified after cIVF and the association between the embryological outcomes of oocytes in cycles with aSERT. This is a retrospective study examining embryological data from cIVF cycles showing the presence of aSERT in oocytes 5–6 h after cIVF. To evaluate embryo quality, cIVF cycles with at least one aSERT-metaphase II (MII) oocyte observed (cycles with aSERT) were compared to cycles with normal-MII oocytes (control cycles). Among the 4098 MII oocytes observed in 579 cycles, aSERT was detected in 100 MII oocytes in 51 cycles (8.8%). The fertilization rate, the rate of embryo development on day 3 and day 5–6 did not significantly differ between cycles with aSERT and control group. However, aSERT-MII oocytes had lower rates for both blastocysts and good quality blastocysts (p < 0.05). aSERT can be detected in the cytoplasm by removing the cumulus cell 5 h after cIVF. However, aSERT-MII oocytes do not affect other normal-MII oocytes in cycles with aSERT. © 2015 Taylor & Francis.

Purpose: The purpose of this study is to examine the clinical outcomes of blastocysts derived from human single-pronucleate (1PN) embryos after conventional in vitro fertilization (cIVF) and intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) cycles. Methods: This was a retrospective study at a reproductive center of a hospital. To evaluate embryo quality and clinical outcomes, cIVF or ICSI cycles with one or more 1PN embryos were compared with same cycles with 2PN embryos (control cycles). Results: A total of 623 cycles (426 cIVF cycles and 197 ICSI cycles) were treated with cIVF or ICSI. The single pronuclear status rate was similar between cIVF (22.1 %) and ICSI (25.1 %) cycles. Although the development rates of 1PN embryos on day 3 and day 5/6 in cIVF were significantly higher than those in ICSI, those of 1PN embryos in cIVF were significantly lower compared to 2PN embryos (p < 0.01). Nonetheless, the ongoing pregnancy rates achieved with 1PN blastocysts in 1PN embryos did not significantly differ from the control group. Thirty-three transfer cycles with 33 blastocysts derived from 1PN embryos in cIVF resulted in nine deliveries with no newborn malformations; however, no implantation was observed in three ICSI cycles. Conclusion: Although the blastocyst formation rate of 1PN embryos was significantly lower than 2PN embryos in cIVF and ICSI cycles, 1PN blastocysts in cIVF, and not from ICSI, demonstrated an adequate ongoing pregnancy rate. These results suggested that 1PN blastocysts in cIVF are available for clinical use and may lead to an increase in the chance of pregnancy in patients receiving assisted reproductive technology with 1PN embryos. © 2015, Springer Science+Business Media New York.
