Presented by Professor Leonard F. Blackwell, Massey University, New Zealand, Dr. Blackwell is trained in organic chemistry, biochemistry and reproductive physiology. He studied under Professor James Brown at the University of Melbourne in the physiology of ovulation and in the development of the Fertility Meter, a device for monitoring ovarian activity in all its manifestations and one of the only true quantitative point-of-care devices in existence. For the past 36 years, Len has been involved in research and development of urinary assays as point-of-care diagnostic kits and recently with quantitative immune-chromatographic assays. He has developed prototype tests for five different analytes relating to reproduction and fertility, and a device for overcoming the fluctuations in urine volume which has held back non-invasive point-of-care diagnostic tests.
Review dietary strategies, and reduce environmental toxin exposure from food, water and personal care products to reduce the risk of infertility as well as what is an integrative approach to fertility. Dr. Victoria Maizes is the Executive Director of the Andrew Weil Center for Integrative Medicine and a Professor at The University of Arizona. Internationally recognized as a leader in integrative medicine, Dr Maizes is committed to helping individuals live healthier lives and pioneering change efforts that address shortcomings of the US health care system.
October Journal Club: RCT of letrozole and clomiphene citrate or letrozole alone for ovulation induction in women with PCOS
Presented by Dr. Joseph Stanford. A randomized controlled trial of combination letrozole and clomiphene citrate or letrozole alone for ovulation induction in women with polycystic ovary syndrome. Does a combination of letrozole and clomiphene citrate result in higher ovulation rates than letrozole alone in infertile women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)?
