Pennsylvania Reproductive Specialists Announces Enrollment for a 3 IVF Clinical Trial Is Ending Soon

Chalfont, PA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 02/05/2015 -- Everyone deserves the opportunity to have a child. Unfortunately, around 15% of couples face an uphill battle and have difficulty conceiving. Helping further in vitro fertilization research, Pennsylvania Reproductive Specialists has announced that enrollment for their 3 IVF clinical trial coming to an end. The study is being conducted to test a new follicle stimulating hormone treatment in order to compare it to a similar treatment that has been approved in America called Gonal-f.

The study drug of the new treatment, which is called AFOLIA, is provided to all participants free of charge. Along with receiving the study drug at no cost, the IVF procedure is offered at a lower rate. Patients will participate for approximately 14 weeks per cycle. Women taking part in the study will need to visit the IVF clinic in Philadelphia on a consistent basis for a variety of procedures. During these visits, they will have blood drawn and ultrasounds taken. They will also receive self-injected medications and have the eggs removed in preparation for the embryo transfer.

Those interested in becoming part of the clinical trial need to meet several qualifying measures. All participants must be between 35 and 42 years old and are required to have both ovaries. They also need to be in good clinical heath and experience regular menstrual cramps. The applicant must be trying to conceive and previously been told that the only way they can have a child is through in vitro fertilization. During the study, they will be examining the outcome of clinical pregnancies and searching for signs of immunogenicity and local and systematic adverse events.

Those interested in becoming a participant of the trial must enroll quickly as they will soon stop taking applications. Woman can learn more about the testing and speak with a fertility doctor in Philadelphia by visiting the Pennsylvania Reproductive Specialists website or calling 215-822-8400.
