Embryo Grading And Ivf Timetable May 29

Embryo Grading and IVF Timetable

by

Delhi IVF

You can ask the Lab Director (or physician) to give you progress reports on the development of your embryos. Critical points in development are (1) fertilization, (2) 4 to 8 cell stage and (3) morula to blastocyst stage.

Numeric grading systems for multicell embryos usually have 4 levels:

Grade 1: even cell division, no fragmentation

Grade 2: even cell division, small fragmentation

Grade 3: uneven cell division, moderate fragmentation

Grade 4: uneven cell division, excessive fragmentatio

The following is an approximate timetable of events for IVF:

Day 0 Egg retrieval Sperm collection and preparation Insemination

Day 1 Check eggs for fertilization (the presence of two pronuclei or PN’s)

Day 2 Embryos at the 4-cell or more stage of development

Day 3 Embryos at the 8-cell or more stage of development

Day 4 Embryos at the compacted morula (16-32 cell) stage

Day 5 Embryos at the blastocyst stage of developmen

The number refers to the degree of expansion of the blastocyst (1 is the least expanded, 6 is the most expanded). The first letter (A,B, or C) refers to the quality of the inner cell mass (the part of the blastocyst that is going to be the baby) and the second letter (A, B, or C) refers to the quality of the trophectoderm (the part of the blastocyst that is going to be the placenta).

Multicell embryos that recieve grade 1 or 2 often develop to the blastocyst stage, those receiving grade 3 or 4 rarely develop to the blastocyst stage. Sometimes the laboratory uses the reversed scale where a grade 4 embryo is equivalent to a grade 1 embryo on the above scale. Please Check with your lab.

While scientists don’t know exactly why so many embryos fail, genetic abnormalities are likely a major culprit. Fertility specialists have had some success using genetic testing to pick embryos-they can screen for a number of genetic diseases-but this testing requires plucking a cell from the developing embryo, which is potentially risky. Also, the tests can only detect a limited number of known genetic defects. Dr. Anoop Gupta – Delhi IVF Specialist

Tanks, APCs deployed to presidential palace in Cairo, Egypt after deadly clashes May 29

Thursday, December 6, 2012 

At least four tanks and several armored personnel carriers (APC) have been deployed outside the presidential palace in Cairo, Egypt following clashes between supporters and opponents of president Mohamed Morsi where as many as six people were killed. More than 700 others have been reported injured.

Opponents of Morsi began camping outside the palace on Tuesday night after hundreds of thousands protested new presidential decrees in Tahrir Square. On Wednesday, supporters of Morsi stormed the encampment and tore down tents belonging to opponents and attacked them. Some threw rocks at them while others threw molotov cocktails, forcing opponents to retreat. Clashes continued into the early morning hours before subsiding.

“I’ve seen Molotov cocktails, people armed with iron bars and rocks, some people even pulling branches off of trees in terms of trying to find some kind of weapon to fight with”, said Elizabeth Arrott, a reporter with Voice of America who was at the palace when clashes were taking place. Several journalists were also reported attacked in the clashes. People on each side have blamed the other for starting the violence.

Protests both in support of and opposing Morsi broke out around Egypt after he enacted new powers on November 22 that include making his decisions free from judicial oversight. Hisham Kandil, Egypt’s prime minister, called for calm, to “give the opportunity for the efforts being made now to begin a national dialogue”. A referendum is to be presented on December 15 outlining a new constitution for the country.

‘Pregnancy pact’ grabs international attention for small Massachusetts town May 27

Saturday, June 21, 2008 

A supposed “pregnancy pact” at Gloucester High School in Gloucester, Massachusetts has drawn international attention to the small Massachusetts fishing city which is considered to be one of the oldest settlements (1623) in the American continent.

The story, which was broken by TIME magazine and the Boston Globe, involved the fact that 17 girls, all sixteen years old or younger, got themselves pregnant as part of a “pregnancy pact”, so that the teenage mothers could raise their babies together.

According the magazine article, school officials at the 1,162 student school became concerned starting as far back as October when a uncommonly large amount of girls began to enter the school’s health clinic to see if they were pregnant.

As of earlier this May, seven girls returned more than once seeking pregnancy tests and upon hearing results, “Some girls seemed more upset when they weren’t pregnant than when they were,” according to James Sullivan, the principal of the school. Some smiled, others cried, and one declared, “Sweet!”, according to the Globe upon hearing their results.

Local officials, including the mayor, are uncertain whether there really was a “pact”, however. Mayor Carolyn Kirk called it a “blip” in the pregnancy rate and noted many factors playing into it, such glamorization of teen pregnancy including the announcement around the same time that Britney Spear’s sister, Jamie Lynn Spears had given birth to a baby, and last year’s critically acclaimed movie, Juno, a comedy about a 16-year-old girl who gets pregnant and other movies, such as Knocked Up.

There is some concern over what might be statutory rape, as it has been reported that most of the men who are the fathers are older, including one report that one of the fathers is a 24-year-old homeless man. In Massachusetts, the age of consent is 16, therefore it is illegal for anyone to have sexual intercourse with anyone under 16.

Other teen mothers however have criticized the new mothers. Two such girls are Alivia Fidler and Meaghan Orlando, childhood friends and sophomore students at the high school, the girls were 16 years old when they became pregnant unexpectedly.

Orlando noted, “If I could go back in time I would want to wait and have the same baby later. You can’t do stuff that normal teens do,” who is now 17 and has a 3-month-old son named Jayden, “They don’t know what they’re getting themselves into.”

Meaghan’s friend, Alivia, also now 17, said the pact idea is “ridiculous.” Noting, “They’re not going to be friends very long. You have to take care of your baby. It’s frustrating. I don’t have a lot of support.” Fidler is no longer with the father of the baby, 5 month-old Xavier Fidler-Aguiar and recently lost her job at McDonalds.

One other teen mother, Amanda Ireland, who recently graduated from the school, also gave a warning to the mothers, “Don’t try to get pregnant. People say they know what it’s like because they have younger siblings, but they really have no idea.”

Ireland also noted, “They’re so excited to finally have someone to love them unconditionally. I try to explain it’s hard to feel loved when an infant is screaming to be fed at 3 a.m.”

46 year-old Gloucester resident Lori Mitchell, whose daughter dropped out of high school at 16 to raise a child said there are worse things than being a teenage mother, “They could be junkies or prostitutes. You try to protect them as much as you can, but it’s up to them to do the right thing.”

Greg Verga, the chairman of the Gloucester School Committee called the pact, “disturbing”, as he himself was once a teen father.

“They are going to have a rude awakening. It was no picnic. People don’t realize there’s 3 a.m. feedings … it’s a lifestyle change. It’s not a possession you can play with and stick on the shelf. That’s why I fear for these girls.”

Just twenty years ago Besant Nagar and Tiruvanmiyur were sweet watered, clean, spacious neighbourhoods. Look at them today and you can see the future that awaits all villages south. Between peoples’ migration, rapidly growing commercial establishments and little awareness of laws, that future might in fact be racing towards us.

Issues of water conservation, waste management and noise and other pollutions should engage all concerned citizens along the ECR. ECCO is an organisation conceived to bring together such citizens.

ECCO has also been working for helping the people of the area who were affected by the Tsunami. ECCO is completely focussed on helping the Tsunami affected and has no overheads.

Mummified baby found In Florida self-storage unit May 27

Friday, January 26, 2007 

A partially-mummified baby was found Monday, January 22, 2007, in a Delray Beach, Florida, self-storage unit.

A woman was emptying her deceased parents’ storage unit when she found a suitcase containing an object wrapped in newspapers. Within that suitcase was another suitcase containing the tightly-wrapped baby. When she recognized the object as a fetus, the woman contacted authorities.

The woman, who has yet to be identified, traveled from New Jersey to clear out the storage unit when she was informed the contents were to be sold at an auction.

According to police, her father died in 2002 or 2003 and her mother died last year in her 70’s.

The newspapers used to wrap the child were from the January 9, 1957 edition of the Daily News, apparently from the New York area.

Look Ma! No Hands! Auto Pilot For Hands Free Driving May 26

Look Ma! No Hands! Auto-Pilot for Hands-Free Driving

by

Volkswagen has just announced their new hands-free driving technology, called the Temporary Auto Pilot (TAP) technology. According to an article written by Andrew Couts, Digital Trends, Volkswagens newly announced TAP system allows drivers to drive semi-automatically up to about 80 MPH with full supervision, of course. Volkswagen believes TAP serves as a stepping stone between the assistant systems that already help drivers in todays cars, and the fully-automatic driving cars of the future.

Above all, what we have achieved today is an important milestone on the path towards accident-free car driving, said Prof. Dr. Jrgen Leohold, Executive Director Volkswagen Group Research, during a presentation of TAP in Sweden.

VW is ahead of the other manufacturers. BMW and Mercedes are including Bluetooth cell phone devices in their cars to promote hands-free talking, but as far as I know, neither has an auto-pilot function for driving their cars. Can you imagine where this auto-pilot technology is going to take us (literally)? With GPS guiding us, hands-free driving may be here sooner than you think.

How does this new hands-free driving technology work? According to Couts article, When put into full Pilot Mode, TAP maintains a speed set by the driver, but then uses lasers, cameras, radar and ultrasonic sensors to safely slow the vehicle when it approaches a bend in the road, or another car. TAP also combines with Volkswagens Lane Assist feature, which keeps the car centered in its lane. TAP will observe all speed limits and passing rules, says Volkswagen, and can automatically perform stop and start maneuvers in a traffic jam.

Does this new technology appeal to you? Are you ready to trust your life to it? Personally I would rather wait for hands-free driving until the cars are more like hover-crafts. Theres something a bit eerie about trusting a machine to know the road conditions, curves and traffic. At least if the vehicles were airborne some of those hazards would be eliminated.

Luckily, this new technology isnt ready to be implemented on a wide basis. So in the meantime, to free up your hands for actual driving, remember to get a Bluetooth headset. More and more states are passing hands-free cell phone laws. At the very least, even if it isnt illegal in your state, it is a much safer way to drive and use your cell phone.

400 Australian soldiers sent to Afghanistan May 26

Sunday, August 20, 2006 

400 Australian soldiers have been officially farewelled at parade in Darwin, NT, ahead of their deployment to Afghanistan on Tuesday. Wishing the soldiers well, Defence Minister Brendan Nelson says there is a high risk associated with the mission.

“We know that this is a dangerous mission but it’s also an extremely important one,” he said. “They will go beginning this week and be deployed over the next few weeks.”

The group will work around the southern Oruzgan Province. Rising violence in the Taliban heartland province earlier this month prompted Australian Prime Minister John Howard to further strengthen the capability of the Reconstruction Task Force (RTF). Approximately 150 personnel will be added to the 240-strong force announced in May.

Defence says the RTF will form part of the Netherlands-led Provincial Reconstruction Team in the Oruzgan province under NATO.

More than 1800 people have been killed in fighting in Afghanistan this year, 92 of them foreign soldiers (12 being Canadian). A contingent of 190 Australian special forces, supported by a 110-member helicopter detachment, has suffered a steady flow of casualties since September year, with 11 wounded — a rate of one a month. The Age reports the Howard Government has “kept secret” how soldiers suffered the wounds, or the extent or nature of the wounds.

Dr Nelson said the soldiers would perform command, construction, communications intelligence, protection and logistics support. “We must stick with our allies and stand up for our values,” he said. He told the troops they would be “dealing with people who are fanatically opposed to our way of life and everything we stand for”.

Dr Nelson says the Australian contribution will also include skills training for the local population to “ensure the benefits of the deployment continue long after our personnel have returned home.”
