After 48 hr, the oocytes were separated from the ovaries and cultured in either [alpha]-MEM, ESGM, or ESCM.
However, significantly higher maturation rates were observed in [alpha]-MEM and ESCM compared to ESGM (32.22%; p=0.000).
However, there was a highly significant difference for ESGM follicles (0%) compared to the success rate in IVF.
Oocyte survival in [alpha]-MEM, ESGM, and ESCM were evaluated.
Similar to our results, Gelber et al observed that ESGM supported in vitro development of 8-cell embryos to blastocysts; however, when embryos were cultured from the 2-cell stage, such benefits were not observed (45).
