BRUSSELS -- ESHRE
, the European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology, warmly and proudly welcomes today's announcement that the Cambridge reproductive biologist Robert Edwards has been awarded the Nobel Prize for Medicine.
believes this discussion should take place together with professionals in the fields and patients.
Matts Wikland, who works at Fertility Center Scandinavia in Gothenburg, when he presented the results of the study at the annual meeting of ESHRE
, the European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology.
With chromosome errors being the predominant cause of non-viability of the embryo, we hope this approach will in future effectively improve results in assisted reproduction," said Professor Geraedts, past ESHRE
chairman and coordinator of the PGS Task Force.

European IVF Monitoring Group and world data from the International Committee for Monitoring Assisted Reproductive Technologies (ICMART)
did not require reports of financial disclosures.
The latest European data to be presented at the ESHRE
congress are for 2009, and showed that demand for treatment - as expressed in treatment cycles performed in European countries - continues to grow, from 532,260 in 2008 to 537,287 in 2009.
Task Force on 'Cross Border Reproductive Care' showed in a recent survey that, of those patients that sought cross border reproductive care, only 13% received partial reimbursement and 4% total reimbursement in their own country.
A similar shift to fewer embryos transferred at a time appeared in the exclusively European registry with data derived from 33 countries that reported complete or partial data to the European IVF Monitoring Program, a project organized by ESHRE
The prevalence of triplet or greater deliveries from in vitro pregnancies fell in Europe from about 4% in 1999 to less than 1% in 2011.
The CGH technique allows analysis on oocytes and not on embryos; it also allows accurate prediction of the chromosomal status of the transferred embryo (with no more than a 10 per cent error rate as found in the ESHRE
2010 provides the media with the opportunity to hear the latest research news and interview the experts.
