Oncofertility Publications - Mouse Follicle Culture
Using a mouse model system for our initial studies, we have demonstrated that the alginate hydrogel-based follicle culture system can support follicle growth from very early follicular stages. Fully-grown oocytes derived from this follicle culture system can mature into metaphase II-arrested eggs that are capable of being fertilized and giving rise to live pups. We have also demonstrated that the alginate hydrogels can support follicle growth following cryopreservation, which is clinically significant.
Did you know that cancer treatments can affect the fertility of men, women, and children? Fertility preservation methods are most effective when used before cancer treatments begin.
