MITOCHONDRIAL DNA REPLACEMENT AND NUCLEAR TRANSFER

Good Evening.  Its my favorite time, Dr. Zhang’s Blog.  Today I would like to take the opportunity to talk about mitochondria and mitochondrial DNA, nuclear transfer and treating patients with a genetic disease for In Vitro Fertilization.  It sounds like a lot of topics but really, everything is revolving around Mitochondria. 

The reason I chose this topic is because today in February 2016, the National Academy of Science has made a statement that they are beginning to discuss techniques, clinical application, and ethics about mitochondrial replacement therapies.

A Note From Dr. Zhang on Trigger Time

Posted by Dr. Zhang

I would like to discuss so-called trigger time.   There are a couple of things I would to take this opportunity to talk about and clarify with our patients.   First of all what exactly is a trigger?   We all know when a woman reaches a certain stage of her menstrual cycle and the follicle is ready to release, the woman’s brain will start the process of inducing ovulation.   Usually, the brain will know what chemical to release to trigger the ovary to relieve the follicle.   However, as we know, when women go through IVF, the egg retrieval will usually be during the daytime.    So even though we know the brain can trigger ovulation, it may comes at an inconvenient hour.   So that’s why we give patients called Synarel, which is a nasal spray, or Ovidrel which is an injestion medication.     They can replace the trigger from the brain during ovulation.   If we are able to trigger at a certain time, it enables us to do the retrieval during the daytime. This is reason why we need to give these triggers.
