Ovarian Club III: The inverse Pyramid - Regulating Follicle Number and Oocyte Quality

  • Conference Call
  • ComtecMed Med­ical Con­gresses is pleased to announce the Ovar­ian Club III, Novem­ber 15 – 16, 2013, Paris, France. The forum will cover the recruit­ment of the pri­mor­dial fol­li­cle and the var­i­ous pro­teins influ­enc­ing it.

    Con­fer­ence Theme

    Fol­li­cle mat­u­ra­tion, from recruit­ment of pri­mor­dial fol­li­cles to ovu­la­tion, is a months-​long process, involv­ing at least 3 – 4 men­strual cycles. Yet, tra­di­tional fer­til­ity treat­ments have con­cen­trated only on the last 2 weeks of this lengthy process, the gonadotropin-​sensitive phase. By that stage, the qual­ity and quan­tity of fol­li­cles are already mostly deter­mined and, there­fore, are no longer sub­ject to ther­a­peu­tic improve­ments. In con­trast, ther­a­peu­tic inter­ven­tions in ear­lier stages of fol­li­cle mat­u­ra­tion, espe­cially at the very early stages of small grow­ing fol­li­cles, may have more sig­nif­i­cant impacts. By attempt­ing treat­ment inter­ven­tions at such early stages of fol­li­cle mat­u­ra­tion, we are poten­tially invert­ing the cur­rent treat­ment pyra­mid and devel­op­ing a new treat­ment par­a­digm in infertility.

    This the­ory will be dis­cussed in rela­tion to stim­u­la­tion with for­mu­la­tions of gonadotropins and other pro­teins. Var­i­ous con­di­tions and sit­u­a­tions, such as poly­cys­tic ovary syn­drome (PCOS), pre­ma­ture ovar­ian fail­ure, poor ovar­ian response and endometrio­sis, will also be dis­cussed related to this concept.

    The Ovar­ian Club is a com­pre­hen­sive forum where inter­na­tional experts share and dis­cuss state-​of-​the-​art man­age­ment top­ics in order to pur­sue the opti­mal treat­ment for patients.

    The Ovar­ian Club enables researchers to present their new stud­ies and find­ings in their fields of exper­tise in an inter­ac­tive plat­form for dis­cus­sions with the lead­ing expert attendees.

    Con­tin­u­ing Med­ical Edu­ca­tion Accred­i­ta­tion (CME)

    The Ovar­ian Club III: The Inverse Pyra­mid: Reg­u­lat­ing Fol­li­cle Num­ber and Oocyte Qual­ity has sub­mit­ted for CME accred­i­ta­tion via the Euro­pean Accred­i­ta­tion Coun­cil for Con­tin­u­ing Med­ical Edu­ca­tion (EAC­CME). The accred­i­ta­tion will be in com­pli­ance with EBU/​UEMS reg­u­la­tions — 1 credit per hour, with a max­i­mum of 6 cred­its per day. Both the EBU and the EAC­CME are the insti­tu­tions of the Euro­pean Union of Med­ical Spe­cial­ists (UEMS).

    All CME events accred­ited by the EBU have the EAC­CME endorsement.

    The EBU/​EACCME CME Cred­its are rec­og­nized by National Accred­i­ta­tion Author­i­ties.
    Each med­ical spe­cial­ist should claim only those hours of credit that he/​she actu­ally spent in the edu­ca­tional activity.

    All CME activ­i­ties approved by the EBU/​EACCME are valid for recog­ni­tion by the Amer­i­can Med­ical Asso­ci­a­tion towards the Physician’s Recog­ni­tion Award (PRA). To con­vert EAC­CME credit to AMA PRA cat­e­gory 1 credit, con­tact the AMA.
