Abstract

PURPOSE:

In human frozen immature oocytes, there has been little successful delivery. We examined the feasibility of vitrification solution including Taxol, cytoskeltal stabilizer.

METHODS:

We set four experimental groups that immature oocytes has cumulus cells or not, or including Taxol or not in the vitrification solution. Frozen-thawed oocytes have been performed IVM, ICSI, and IVC.

RESULTS:

There were no significant differences in survival, maturation, and fertilization rate, respectively. However, in the group enveloped by cumulus cells and including Taxol in the vitrification solution, one embryo was developed to blastocyst.

CONCLUSIONS:

Our results showed that using vitrification solution with Taxol proved so effective.
