An international clinical study briefing was held to verify the usefulness of the ERA (Endometrial Implantation Ability) test: June 15th

Description of an international clinical study to verify the usefulness of the ERA (Endometrial Receptivity Analysis) test.

At our hospital, we have conducted numerous clinical studies and conducted joint research with external institutions.
This time, we will participate in clinical trials of ERA tests, which will be conducted in 11 countries around the world.
Participation in as many as 11 countries makes this one of the largest international clinical studies.

At the start of clinical research, researchers from Igenomics (Headquarters: Spain), the main research institute, visited the hospital and held a briefing session.
The doctor and the person in charge of each department, mainly the inspection department, participated and received explanations on the purpose and significance of the research and the test method.
After the briefing session, there was a question and answer session, and information was actively exchanged not only about clinical research but also about ERA tests.
We ask patients who wish to have IVF to participate in our clinical trials.
(Since there are participation criteria, only those who meet the participation criteria are allowed).
Details will be announced as soon as the schedule is decided.

Expectations for hormone-free contraceptives and infertility treatment ... Elucidation of the structure and action of cognitive proteins essential for fertilization(6/20)

A research group at the Graduate School of Pharmaceutical Sciences, the University of Tokyo has clarified the detailed three-dimensional structure of three patterns of fertilization-related proteins: "Izumo" on the sperm surface, "Juno" on the egg surface, and a complex of both. did.

As a result, it is possible to understand the interaction between sperm and egg, and it is expected to develop contraceptives with a new mechanism of action that does not use hormones that inhibit the binding between Izumo and Junho.

Studies such as measuring these molecules are thought to be useful in infertility treatment.
