Thanks to enormous scientific efforts of the last decades, in vitro fertilization (IVF) and in vitro production (IVP) have now been introduced successfully in the practice of human infertility treatment and cattle breeding programs. This comprehensive book allows us to bridge the knowledge from both biomedical and veterinary fields of research. For the first time, studies concerning the human embryo as well as embryos from domestic species are brought together. The central theme of the book is "the assessment of mammalian embryo quality". In 15 chapters, written by well-known scientists, different aspects of the assessment of mammalian embryo quality are summarized. Non-invasive and invasive techniques to evaluate embryo quality are separated in two parts. In addition the book is provided with appendices on practical aspects and, thus, the book should be present in each laboratory for IVF and IVP.

The use of human in vitro fertilization in the management of infertility is the outgrowth of years of laboratory observations on in vitro sperm-egg interaction. "The editors of this work have themselves contributed significantly to basic knowledge of the mammalian fertilization process. The observations of Don Wolf on sperm penetration, the block to polyspermy and, most recently, sperm hyperactivation in the monkey and human, Gregory Kopf's elucidation of the mechanisms of sperm activation during penetration and the reciprocal dialogue between sperm and egg, and Barry Bavister's definition of culture conditions and requirements necessary for in vitro oocyte maturation, fertilization and development in model mammalian systems including nonhuman primates have contributed greatly to our understanding of the mammalian fertilization process. Wolf, Kopf and Gerrity have enjoyed substantial interaction with clinicians in Departments of Obstetrics and Gynecology and have been directly involved with successful IVF programs. Both Wolf and Kopf have served as research scientists in the Division of Reproductive Biology at the University of Pennsylvania, which, for more than 22 years, has fostered co-mingling of clinically oriented and basic science faculty. It is through such interaction, which clearly exists at many institutions including the University of Wisconsin, that the process of technology transfer is best served. Without an exquisitely coordinated laboratory, there can be no consistent success in human in vitro fertilization. Quality control is pivotal, but close collaboration between the laboratory and the clinic is also essential as information is shared and correlated.

The most profound dilemma in assisted reproduction to date is the inability to recognize potentially viable embryos before their replacement into the reproductive tract. Application of increasingly advanced new technology has allowed the field of embryo evaluation to evolve rapidly and dramatically over the past five years. Human Preimplantation Embryo Selection assembles the leaders in the field of assisted reproduction to discuss their visions of dealing with the topic of embryo selection in the light of the limitations involving the fragility of the early human embryo. The purpose of this book is to shed light on the ever-expanding techniques that are being employed and evaluated with regard to embryo selection. A comprehensive overview may guide the ART practitioner in choice of techniques and evaluation of benefits and drawbacks. This book will provide an up-to-date overview and reference source: an invaluable tool for assisted reproductive practice worldwide.

The Fourth Edition of Knobil & Neill continues to serve as a reference aid for research, to provide the historical context to current research, and most importantly as an aid for graduate teaching on a broad range of topics in human and comparative reproduction. In the decade since the publication of the last edition, the study of reproductive physiology has undergone monumental changes. Chief among these advances are in the areas of stem cell development, signaling pathways, the role of inflammation in the regulatory processes in the various tissues, and the integration of new animal models which have led to a greater understanding of human disease. The new edition synthesizes all of this new information at the molecular, cellular, and organismal levels of organization and present modern physiology a more understandable and comparative context. The Fourth Edition has been extensively revised, reflecting new fundamental advancements in this rapidly advancing field. Provides a common language for researchers across the fields of physiology, endocrinology, and biology to discuss their understanding of reproduction. Saves academic researchers time in quickly accessing the very latest details on reproductive physiology, as opposed to searching through thousands of journal articles.

This book explains how biological factors can influence the development of human gametes and early embryos, and how clinicians and researchers can use this information to select methods of medically assisted conception best suited to infertile patients. Because laboratory methods and clinical protocols, such as the quality of water and purity of reagents used in culture medium, are essential to the success of these procedures, there is a tendency to give the less weight to biological factors in explaining the success or failure in achieving pregnancy. In redressing the balance, this volume shows how molecular, cellular, genetic, endocrinological, and immunological factors contribute to the development potential of human gametes and early embryos. The chapters are written by authors who are clinicians in medically assisted conception and researchers in the etiology of early reproductive failure. Many of the contributors offer advice on how programs could benefit from adopting analytical methods that would determine fertility/developmental problems at the gamete level. The ability to recognize how these intrinsic factors can affect the early stages of human development provides a more insightful basis for interpreting pregnancy outcome, and a more complete understanding of the factors that can and cannot be controlled. Reproductive biologists and clinicians involved in medically assisted conception should find the book highly useful.

In the last 20 years, with the advent of ultrasound imaging, in vitro fertilization, and molecular biology, our knowledge of early human development has completely changed. The recent fields of embryonic and fetal medicine have grown considerably as a result. These important developments have, however, been almost completely ignored by most of the textbooks on Embryology. This textbook presents the most up-to-date information on human development between conception and fetal life. It brings together for the first time detailed clinical and scientific information on natural and artificial conception, together with an overview of normal and abnormal embryonic development. Included are sections on artificial conception, embryonic development in the laboratory, in utero materno-embryonic relationships, and the early diagnosis and therapy of human diseases. The information included here will be essential for all physicians and scientists with an interest in human reproduction. Embryonic Medicine and Therapy provides and accessible, comprehensive, and practical guide to this important stage in human development.
