Donor Egg IVF

by Gautam N Allahbadia, Rubina Merchant

Egg donation has been widely practiced for the past 25 years. Today, it is successfully used to treat women with a variety of disorders, including premature ovarian failure, declining ovarian function due to advanced reproductive age, avoidance of genetic disease transmission, poor oocyte quality following recurrent implantation failure during conventional assisted reproduction and age-related infertility. Interestingly oocyte donation seems to represent the most efficacious method of all assisted reproduction techniques. Moreover, success rates do not appear to vary greatly with the recipient’s age or diagnosis. Medical concerns also remain with regard to egg donation. For instance what genetic and clinical tests should every egg donor undergo? And, should all recipients be allowed to undergo egg donation, or should age, medical and mental limits be set? The wide scope of the present book clearly demonstrates the growing role of egg donation in reproductive care. Dr Gautam N Allahbadia has once again shown his significant merits and abilities by putting together an impressive and wide ensemble of some of the world’s greatest experts in the field of egg donation. The huge body of information assembled for the first time on this subject of growing importance, creates a unique and unprecedented volume. We are certain that clinicians, embryologists and other professionals involved in that sacred work of fulfilling the dream of a healthy child for those in need of egg donation, will all find this superb textbook of great help in their daily practice.
