Collection 

Assisted reproduction in humans and animals

Submission status
Open
Submission deadline

Assisted reproductive technology (ART) is increasingly being used to facilitate conception in both clinical and veterinary medicine. Infertility rates are on the rise amongst the global human population, and today, approximately every sixth couple of reproductive age encounter difficulties in conceiving. In addition to overcoming issues of male or female infertility in humans, ART also provides a route to mitigating transmission of serious, heritable diseases. In veterinary medicine, ART is mainly used for increasing agricultural production via treatment of subfertility and genetic improvement of stock. It also has an important role in aiding conservation efforts of endangered breeds or species.

This Collection aims to bring together original research on all aspects of assisted reproduction, including but not limited to ovarian stimulation, cryopreservation of gametes/embryos, intrauterine insemination, in vitro fertilisation, pre-implantation screening, embryo transfer and obstetrical outcomes.
