RMA of New York, Continuing to Lead the Way in Reproductive Medicine, Presents Research Findings at ESHRE 2010 Annual Meeting

Reproductive Medicine Associates of New York, leading the way in research, continues to identify opportunities to improve patient successes.


2010-08-18
NEW YORK, NY, August 18, 2010 (Press-News.org) Physicians and embryologists from Reproductive Medicine Associates of New York (RMA of New York) were invited to lecture and present scientific findings to a distinguished group of colleagues at the European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology (ESHRE) annual meeting in Rome, Italy on June 27-30, 2010. ESHRE is an international society of physicians and researchers that aims to promote the understanding of reproductive medicine and improve clinical practice and laboratory procedures.

Jason Barritt, PhD, ELD, HCLD, the Scientific Director of RMA of New York, gave a well received lecture at The EMD Serono Symposium International Foundation on the topic of pre-implantation embryo selection. Dr. Barritt discussed the current methods used by embryologists in selecting human embryos for implantation as well as innovative identification techniques being used to select the highest quality embryos. "Selecting the embryo for transfer that will implant and result in a healthy birth is the key in embryo transfer. We are encouraged by the results of the research we are doing that combines advanced optical microscopic evaluation, genetic testing, such as Pre-implantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD), and protein analysis of discarded culture media for embryo selection," stated Dr. Barritt. His lecture addressed how this combination of advanced laboratory testing techniques is currently leading the advances in the field of human embryo selection. The invitation to lecture on this topic is a great honor for both Dr. Barritt and RMA of New York.

The results of RMA of New York's independent research studies were also presented at ESHRE's annual meeting. Dr. Alan Copperman, Co-Medical Director of RMA of New York, presented findings in the areas of ovum donation (egg donation) and ovarian stimulation protocols.

Dr. Copperman presented an RMA of New York research study on the topic of shared ovum donation cycles; whereby two recipients (a primary and secondary) share the oocytes (eggs) of a donor in attempt to achieve pregnancy. The study, co-authored by Dr. Copperman and Dr. Gerardo Vela of RMA of New York, looked at shared cycles where the secondary recipient's cycle is cancelled due to low oocyte yield by a donor. "The study found that cancellation of the secondary recipient due to a low oocyte yield is a rare event. Yet when the situation arises, primary recipients can be reassured that their anticipated treatment outcome will not differ from those of both shared and non-shared ovum donation cycles," stated Dr. Copperman.

RMA of New York presented another research study that evaluated the effectiveness of micro or mini-IVF as compared to traditional treatments. The study, co-authored by Dr. Martha Luna of RMA of New York, International, examined the correlation between ovarian response to fertility medication and Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) outcomes. Traditional IVF protocols use more fertility medication to stimulate the ovary and typically allow more oocytes to be retrieved. Micro-IVF uses lower doses of fertility medication and in turn stimulates fewer oocytes for retrieval. "Our study found that clinical pregnancy rates were higher in all age groups as the number of oocytes obtained at retrieval increased. Having more embryos for the embryologist to choose from may be responsible for this phenomenon, especially in older patients. This suggests that traditional IVF methods of ovarian stimulation may be optimal and that micro-IVF techniques offering mild stimulation warrant further evaluation prior to being validated as a clinical therapeutic option" stated Dr. Copperman, co-author of the study.

RMA of New York is excited to share this research insight with both the professional community and patients who are the ultimate beneficiaries of clinical improvements to care.

Missouri Narrows Tort Reform Caps, Passes on Constitutionality Question

2010-08-18
The Missouri Supreme Court recently provided a significant, albeit limited, victory to injured people seeking damages in medical malpractice claims. In Klotz v. St. Anthony's Medical Center, the court concluded that the caps on noneconomic damages enacted by Missouri's 2005 tort reform law should only apply to injuries that occurred after the law took effect. Unfortunately, the court failed to address the larger issues of whether the damages caps themselves are constitutional. The 2005 Tort Reform Law and Damages Caps In 2005, then-Gov. Matt Blunt signed a bill into ...

Diageo North American, Inc., et. al, 2010 WL 1407325 (W.D.Ky.) from the United States District Court for the Western District of Kentucky. The case arose out of the adoption of the distinctive red wax seal used by Maker's Mark, a distiller of bourbon, by the makers of Cuervo tequila. Although no one is going to ...

Treating Mental Illness: Can a Missed Diagnosis Lead to Jail Time?

2010-08-18
Countless crimes are committed everyday in the United States. Some of them, by default, are committed by people with some form of mental illness. Some of these disorders are diagnosed, some are not. In some cases, relatively minor offenses arise as the result of mental illness. An individual may be arrested for trespassing or for being a public nuisance, when the criminal activity is a merely a symptom of a larger problem. In other cases, a criminal act is a cry for help - some know that the only way they will ever receive the medication and treatment they desperately ...

Michigan High Court Considers "Possession" in Child Pornography Cases

2010-08-18
In a recent case, the Michigan Supreme Court elucidated the meaning of "possession" within the context of child pornography. The ruling expands the definition of possession to include both actual and constructive possession of child sexually-abusive material, thereby making it more difficult for people accused of possession of child pornography to defend against these allegations. The defendants were identified after federal officials raided a company in Florida that sold child pornography on the Internet. With information from the credit cards used to access and view ...

Manufacturers Try to Swerve Around Off-Road Vehicle Safety Rules

2010-08-18
Manufacturers of recreational off-road vehicles are attempting to head off regulators by incorporating some safety features into their products. The chairperson of the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission says these belated efforts won't deter the government from pursuing safety standards. The Commission is writing mandatory rules for the two- to four-passenger recreational off-road vehicles also known as ROVs. Bloomberg News reports that U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission chair Inez Tannenbaum told a meeting of ROV manufacturers that "it concerned me then, ...

Radiation Overdoses Coming To Light Following Brain Perfusion CT Scans

2010-08-18
Imagine suddenly losing your hair in a narrow ring around your head (right about where a hat would sit) but have no idea why. That dilemma was the start of a very troubling discovery for hundreds of people across the country who had been the victims of radiation overdoses during CT scans. In the summer of 2009, reports of the telltale hair loss and other symptoms began surfacing, as medical experts and the victims themselves began putting the pieces together. All signs pointed toward radiation overdoses during CT perfusion scans -- tests for blood flow in the brain, ...

Does Massachusetts' "Charitable Immunity" Law Affect Patient Safety?

2010-08-18
Everyone agrees that well-trained, devoted nurses are a crucial component of quality health care. Not everyone agrees on what nurse staffing levels are needed to maintain high-quality care or on how to create and sustain a sizable pool of good nurses. Some Massachusetts health care advocates are now focusing on the state's "charitable immunity" law as an overlooked contributing factor to substandard care. What is the "Charitable Immunity Law"? Massachusetts is one of the few remaining states to recognize the doctrine of "charitable immunity." In short, this legal ...
