Progyny Announces New Study That Will Further Aid Embryo Screening with the Use of Progyny’s Eeva™ Test for in Vitro Fertilization Patients

Progyny announced a new study that will further aid embryo screening with the use of Progyny’s Eeva™ (early embryo viability assessment) Test for in vitro fertilization (IVF) patients. The study was presented at the European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology’s (ESHRE) annual conference in Helsinki, Finland. The study focused on identifying specific markers of chromosomally normal blastocysts to determine which chromosomally normal embryos implanted and led to a live birth versus similar embryos that did not lead to a live birth. These markers were identified using the Eeva Test, the only FDA cleared, non-invasive early embryo screening tool. This analysis lays a foundation to further assist embryologists with determining a patient’s embryo transfer order. The study was designed to further enhance the performance of current embryo screening techniques to better understand which chromosomally normal embryos are likely to lead to a live birth. The study analyzed 55 patients with 81 transferred euploid blastocysts from fresh and frozen cycles from 2012 to 2013. Out of the 81 blastocysts transferred, 43 led to a live birth. Eeva’s Time Lapse System automatically processed embryo markers looking at dynamic blastocyst development including the number, frequency, timing and rate of collapses during embryo culture. The study determined that euploid blastocysts with more frequent and longer blastocyst collapse events have a lower live birth rate when compared to similar embryos that implanted and led to a live birth. This dynamic blastocyst marker, termed High Collapse Index by the authors, may compromise embryo viability or may be a new mark of embryo quality.
