In vitro fertilization in humans and domestic animals (IVF)
Origin and history of human IVF
Potential applications of contemporary experimental approaches to contraceptive development
Elements of Mammalian Fertilization, Volume 2 discusses in vitro fertilization (IVF) in humans and domestic animals and provides insight into potential applications of contemporary experimental approaches to contraceptive development. Topics covered include the origins and history of human IVF, technical considerations and diverse factors that often determine the success or failure of human IVF, the application of IVF to domestic animals, and the application of gamete biochemistry and molecular biology toward development of novel methods of contraception. This volume addresses some of the most exciting technological developments that have occurred over the past decade, developments that have already dramatically affected our lives and will continue to do so in the future. It is an important reference source for research scientists, clinicians, and advanced graduate and medical students.
