New MFC Research Study

Anti-Müllerian hormone

New MFC research study suggests that Anti-Müllerian hormone and progesterone levels in human follicular fluid are predictors of embryonic development.

A recent study from Dr Yvonne O’ Brien, from her time with MFC, has found that AMH and progesterone levels are higher in follicular fluid surrounding oocytes that go on to become good quality blastocysts, as compared to those that do not.

This research project was carried out in collaboration with Dr Lynne O’Shea in UCD. Our findings suggest that hormone levels in follicular fluid may be used to more sensitively and accurately predict how well an embryo will develop.

We would like to thank all the MFC patients who kindly took part in this research study.  This exciting development may aid us in further improving treatment outcomes in the future.
