 Women may be Stopping IVF Treatment Prematurely: Celmatix Study

Celmatix is a biotechnology company focused on helpingphysicians guide patients to treatments that maximize their personal reproductive potential.

It announced six research presentations at the annual meeting of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM), being held October 12­17 in Boston.

Among the data presented was a new study suggesting that up to 25 percent of patients may be discontinuing assisted reproductive therapies such as in vitro fertilization (IVF) early, while they still have a good chance of having a baby. The clinical study, which was performed on a dataset of over 6,000 patients from study co­authors Reproductive Medicine Associates of New York, showed that 68 percent of women conceived within two cycles.

For those who did not conceive in that time frame and chose to discontinue treatment, the data suggested that more than half (60 percent) would have become pregnant if they had proceeded with an additional two treatment cycles. Other Celmatix findings being presented at ASRM include data on genetic markers related to currently unexplained female infertility and IVF success; factors correlated with higher risk of ectopic pregnancy; and an analytical model that predicts the estimated number of cycles needed by a particular couple to achieve live birth using various fertility treatments.

"We are excited to have this opportunity to present our research findings at ASRM, especially our finding that most patients who are initially unsuccessful with fertility treatments still have a significant chance of having a baby," said Piraye Yurttas Beim, PhD, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Celmatix. "There are so many unanswered questions about why some women struggle with fertility. These questions create difficult decisions for women and their healthcare providers. Our goal is to offer tools and resources that make this process as informed and evidence­based as possible."

The oral abstracts presented by Celmatix were:
  • Patients Discontinue Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) Too Early: The Results of a Large Multiyear Cohort Study
  • A Novel Role for Genomic Copy Number Variants in Female Infertility
  • Accurate Prediction of the Number of Cycles to Achieve Live Birth

The three poster presentations were:
  • Improved Determination of Ectopic Pregnancy Risks in Patients Undergoing In Vitro Fertilization Using Time­To­Event Models
  • Whole Genome Sequencing for Female Infertility Biomarker Discovery
  • Targeted Resequencing Sheds Light on the Etiology of Unexplained Female Infertility
