A Reproductive centre in the city today said it has helped an issueless couple become proud parents of twins, through innovative cytoplasmic transfer technology using the woman s own oocytes, for the first time in Asia. Talking to reporters here today, Dr M D Kini and Dr P S R Murthy, Clinical Director and Scientific Director of Mircale Advanced Reproductive Centre (MARC), said this cytoplasmic transfer technology was performed only in the US and Italy so far. This was for the first time it was done in entire Asia, especially India. This technology offers a ray of hope for infertile couples, using woman s own eggs, though it was of poor quality, could be used, instead of depending on a donor. Even if there is one good quality egg, cytoplasmic transfer can be done to the other poor quality eggs without touching the nucleus , they said. Explaining the new technology, they said a 34-year-old woman (name not disclosed) thrice tried in vain at different fertility clinics but could not become pregnant, even nine years after her marriage. When she was brought to MARC we explained the new technology of Cytoplasmic Transfer and advised her that the gynaecologists could also do assisted hatching of the embryo before transfer. She had her first treatment cycle in January 2011 this year with Bromocriptine Rebound Antagonist protocol and recovered five oocytes (eggs) of which one of them was of relatively good quality. It was sacrificed and Cytoplasmic transfer was done for the other four eggs. They were subjected to Intra Cytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI) and three were fertilised. Three embryos were replaced and assisted hatching was done. The treatment continued and a scan after 35 days confirmed twin pregnancy. Because of her previous history and multiple pregnancy we wanted to prevent preterm labour so she had a cervical circlage at 18 weeks of gestation the Doctors said, adding, her pregnancy continued and she delivered twin babies, a baby boy weighing 2.8 Kg and a baby girl weighing 2.74 Kg by caesarian section on September 16. Both the mother and the babies are fine, they added. UNI GV VV SD BD1747
