The Australian delegation was led by Professor William Ledger, Discipline Head of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the School of Women’s and Children’s Health and Head of the Fertility and Research Center at the University of New Wales South.
Doctors and experts are to carry the first cases of CAPA-IVM, in which Vietnam takes the lead in the world, to Australia in September.
The Vietnamese research group, led by Associate Professor Vuong Thi Ngoc Lan of the University of Medicine and Pharmacy of Ho Chi Minh City and Ho Manh Tuong, Secretary General of the Association of Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility of Ho Chi Minh City (HOSREM) and Head of HOPE Research Center at My Duc Hospital, has 12 articles on IVM, especially CAPA-IVM, published internationally.
IVM is a technique to obtain oocytes that are developed in vitro prior to fertilization with sperm in a laboratory with an embryo transferred to a patient’s uterus for the purpose of ongoing pregnancy and live birth.
CAPA-IVM is a relatively new protocol using an advanced culture medium that enhances the in vitro development of immature oocytes, potentially resulting in a higher number of quality embryos per patient.
CAPA-IVM technology is the result of a scientific cooperation program between Vietnam and Belgium.
Over the past five years, experts from Indonesia, Malaysia, Australia, Belgium, Denmark and the United States have visited My Duc Hospital to learn from their Vietnamese peers’ experience in this field. .
The hospital will also soon welcome French and Turkish experts.
