Infertility News

Infertility insurance, April lifted Financial Services Agency (3/25)

The Financial Services Agency has officially announced that it will lift the ban on insurance products that guarantee the cost of fertility treatment from April 1.
Life insurance companies will start considering specific products.

Implantation failure, related genes revealed Tokyo Medical and Dental University(4/8)

A research team at Tokyo Medical and Dental University has confirmed that a gene called Sox17 does not work sufficiently in the endometrium of mice, which is one of the causes of implantation failure.

When the number of implantations of fertilized eggs was examined, the average number was 8.3 in normal mice, but it decreased to 1.5 in mice in which the expression of this gene was insufficient.

The detailed mechanism is not yet known, but if the mechanism is known, it is expected that it may lead to an improvement in the pregnancy rate of infertility treatment.
