FertiGen as proof-of-concept
Given the rush to find a “cure for menopause”, isn’t it surprising that so few clinical trials are dedicated to study ovarian rejuvenation? The first–and so far, only–results submitted to NIH on this vital research field are from Team Sills.
As our experience with platelet chemistry continues to grow here, some patients will occasionally mention PRP is being offered by others, too. While those clinics seem to have slicker websites and bigger marketing budgets, none seem to be doing any serious, structured research on ovarian PRP.
“When that IVF clinic’s data collection amounted to ‘may I get your credit card details please?’ we just knew it wasn’t right.”
– VOICEMAIL INBOX, 2019
So there are many ways to isolate PRP growth factors, perform the actual PRP injection, and track response. Even patient counseling and informed consent can be quite different.
Of course any IVF clinic is free to use their own methods, different than what is offered here and what we report in our published data.
We invite colleagues to join our research and share their results on PubMed. This is how we advance and improve clinical practice. In the meantime it’s just not possible to evaluate any PRP protocol which remains undisclosed.
Comparison of Success Rates & Clinical Results
1. Effectiveness of FertiGen measured by % of patients with significantly increased AMH within three months of ovarian injection SOURCE: International Journal of Regenerative Medicine (2020).
2. Effectiveness of IVF, national average SOURCE: https://www.sartcorsonline.com/rptCSR_PublicMultYear.aspx?ClinicPKID=0
3. Effectiveness of standard HRT is not known, only that it can work for some women SOURCE: https://journals.plos.org/plosmedicine/article?id=10.1371/journal.pmed.1000335
FertiGen isn’t IVF…it’s been described as ‘pre’ IVF.
But always know when, or even if, IVF should follow next.
Are we overusing IVF?
