- Brief summaryThe high multiple pregnancy rate caused by IVF treatment leads to a higher incidence of medical, perinatal and neonatal complications and hence to higher health care costs. Single Embryo Transfer (SET) is an effective way to minimize risks of multiple pregnancies. Only one embryo is transferred, so the selection of the embryo with an optimum implantation potential very important. Currently, embryo selection is mainly based on morphological criteria using light microscope analysis. Because of its limited predictive value for ongoing pregnancy, new selection tools are being sought-after. Previous study showed that non-invasive metabolomic profiling seem to provide a strong addition to the selection of viable embryos and may serve as a useful methodology for rapid, non-invasive embryo selection. We hypothesize that pregnancy rates may improve when a more sensitive and specific selection tool like metabolomic profiling of biomarkers of oxidative metabolism by Near Infrared (NIR) Spectroscopy is used.
