Supplementing culture media with prostaglandin or its analog to enhance the development of embryos
Abstract A method of enhancing in vitro development of a mammalian embryo is disclosed which comprises supplementing the culture medium with a prostaglandin, or a prostaglandin analog, in an amount effective to promote complete hatching of the embryo (i.e., freeing of the embryo from the zona pellucida). The quality of human blastocysts is enhanced...

Agglomerated particles responding to hypoglycemia
Background: Diabetes is a disease caused by an insulin deficiency or a resistance to insulin in the body. Type I diabetes is an autoimmune disease that damages the beta cells of the islets of Langerhans in the pancreas, resulting in an inadequate amount of insulin in the body. Without insulin treatments, Type I diabetes is fatal. Type II diabetes ...
