FSH response-dose can be predicted in ovulation induction for normogonadotropic anovulatory infertility

van Santbrink, E.J., Eijkemans, M.J., Macklon, N.S. and Fauser, B.C. (2002) FSH response-dose can be predicted in ovulation induction for normogonadotropic anovulatory infertility European Journal of Endocrinology, 147, (2), pp. 223-226. (doi:10.1530/eje.0.1470223). (PMID:12153744).

Abstract

The patient group with the best step-down profile for ovulation induction exhibited the closest match between the clinically applied and calculated starting dose of gonadotropins. Therefore, this study provides support for the concept that the individual effective FSH starting dose for gonadotropin induction of ovulation in anovulatory infertile patients can be predicted on the basis of initial screening characteristics, such as body mass index, clomiphene resistance or failure, free IGF-I and FSH. This may result in more effective patient treatment protocols, reduced complication rates and health-economic benefits.
