Cytoplasmic Transfer

Another ground-breaking method is introduced by Chennai’s Prashanth Super speciality hospital, providing many infertile couples new hope. The process of cytoplasmic transfer involves giving healthy cytoplasm from donors who are fertile to patients’ eggs.

This complex procedure is most helpful for both younger individuals with unexplained infertility and repeated implantation failure as well as older people whose eggs have lost the capacity to function properly. Additionally, it helps people with mitochondrial diseases.

Procedure for Cytoplasmic Transfer

Patient eggs are rejuvenated using young, viable egg donor cytoplasm. Fertile cytoplasm donates factors needed for embryo growth and implantation. The embryo’s energy is boosted by injecting “Fertile” cytoplasm into the patient’s eggs.

Eggs are obtained from carefully selected egg donors. Meanwhile, the recipient’s eggs are retrieved and prepped for sperm injection with her husband’s. An enucleate volume of the egg donor’s cytoplasm is injected with the sperm. Mitochondria and other nutrients are abundant in donated cytoplasm.

Analysis for Cytoplasmic Transfer

The remaining donor egg is then subjected to cytoplasmic examination to confirm that the recipient’s eggs have not unintentionally acquired the donor’s chromosomes.

The resultant embryo is examined for fertilization, blastulation, and embryo cleavage. The offspring is genetically related to the couple who received treatment. This method has been used to deliver more than 30 children worldwide.

According to earlier research, this revolutionary new procedure has helped many patients whose embryos had previously failed to implant get pregnant. Due to the repairing components in the given cytoplasm, the developing embryo is frequently of higher quality. Additionally, this method has produced healthy births in older women who previously had unsuccessful pregnancies using only their own eggs.

The UK Human Fertilization and Embryology Authority allowed cytoplasmic transfers in February. Prashanth Super Specialty Hospital now offers this cutting-edge surgery under their Australian partnership. This new approach is excellent for couples with unexplained infertility, repeated implantation failure, severely fragmented embryos, advanced age, and mitochondrial diseases. Cytoplasmic transfer offers Indian infertile couples new hope.

This innovative procedure allows women over 38 to 40 and those with endometriosis, ovarian cyst surgery, or inadequate eggs to conceive infants without donor eggs. Useful if donor eggs are unsuitable to some women, especially educated and higher-class women who cannot accept a child with donor genes. This approach will also help young patients with poor egg quality who have had repeated IVF failures or miscarriages. Cytoplasmic transfer helps infertile couples.
