Center Of Reproductive Medicine Participates In The Thrive-IVF Research Study To Help Improve Pregnancy Success Rates And Outcomes In Women With A History Of Repeated In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) Failures
Date:9/26/2013

WEBSTER, Texas, Sept. 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The Center of Reproductive Medicine today announced its participation in the Thrive-IVF Research Study, a Phase 2 clinical trial sponsored by Nora Therapeutics, Inc., to evaluate the efficacy, safety and tolerability of NT100 in women who have had repeated in vitro fertilization (IVF) failures despite having good quality embryos. A novel biologic agent similar to a naturally occurring protein in the female reproductive tract, NT100, is being specifically designed and developed for use following in vitro fertilization (IVF) procedures to improve pregnancy success rates and outcomes.

"We are delighted to be part of the Thrive-IVF Research Study to help evaluate a unique treatment option that could help improve pregnancy success rates and outcomes for women who have undergone multiple unsuccessful IVF procedures," said Vicki L. Schnell MD, FACOG, Thrive-IVF study investigator, and founder and medical director, Center of Reproductive Medicine.

More than seven million couples in the U.S. suffer from infertility and 10 percent of women of childbearing age in the developed world experience infertility in any given 12-month period. While significant research efforts in IVF have been focused on the embryo, it is estimated that three-fourths of all embryos that are transferred still fail to implant in the uterus. 

A critical part of the equation for the establishment and maintenance of a successful pregnancy is the presence not only of a good embryo, but also a favorable maternal environment for the embryo to implant and thrive. NT100's novel mechanism of action may better enable embryo implantation and pregnancy maintenance by optimizing maternal-fetal immune tolerance. There are currently no FDA-approved therapies focused on this critical dimension of endometrial receptivity.
