Efficiency and efficacy of vitrification in 35.654 sibling oocytes from donation cycles

Scientists from Eugin Spain have published the largest cohort study comparing reproductive outcomes of vitrified and fresh sibling donor oocytes to date. They have found that, when looking at the same number of oocytes available after warming as the number of fresh oocytes, reproductive results including live birth are comparable. This is a retrospective cohort […]
