  2. 2. ASSISTED REPRODUCTIVE TECHNOLOGIES (ART) Commonly used method in %Assisted reproductive technologies (ART) refer to infertility treatments that involve the handling of eggs or embryos.This includes IVF, GIFT, and ZIFT. ZIFT (Zygote Intra 3With GIFT (gamete intrafallopian Fallopian Transfer) transfer), the egg and sperm, or gametes, are not fertilized outside the body. Instead, they are placed GIFT (Gamete Intra Commonly used 2 Fallopian Transfer) method in % together into one of the womans fallopian tubesZIFT: With ZIFT (zygote intrafallopian IVF ( In Vitro 1 Fertilization ) transfer), the zygote is placed in one of the fallopian tubes. This is usually done via laparoscopic 0 20 40 60 80 surgery.
  3. 3. SUCCESS RATE OF ART METHODS Live birth rate of each IVF Cycle For women under age 35, the live birth rate Rate in % for each IVF cycle is 30% to 35%. For women ages 35 to 37, the rate is 25%. 35 For women ages 38 to 40, the rate is 15% to 20%, 30 For women over age 40, the success rate is 6% to 10%. 25 ART is also sometimes performed with donor eggs and/or sperm. For women whose eggs are of lower 20 quality, donor eggs may be the best option. Live birth rate of 15 each IVF Cycle Rate The live birth rate for egg donation is in % between 40% to 45%, but less than 10% of couples choose to use donor 10 eggs or sperm. 5 0 <35 35-37 38-40 > 40 1 2 3 4
  4. 4. IVF - INVITRO FERTILIZATION AN OVERVIEWWhat Is IVF?IVF stands for in vitro fertilization, which literally means "in lab conception." With IVF treatment, the egg is fertilized with sperm in a petri dish. Typically, many eggs are retrieved from the biological mother (who may or may not be the intended parent), as not every egg will fertilize, and not every fertilized egg will become a viable embryo.Indications: Bilateral blocked Fallopian tubes Severe endometriosis Pelvic inflammatory disease with severe adhesion Premature Menopause Failed reversal of Vasectomy/ Tubectomy Obstructive azoospermia Genetic diseases Menopause Surrogacy (Traditional/ Gestational)
  5. 5. CRYOPRESERVATIONA few days after fertilization, the best embryo or embryos are transferred to the mother or surrogates uterus via a catheter through the cervix. Any extra embryos may be cryopreserved for future cycles.
  6. 6. IVF TREATMENT PLANIVF- Treatment Plan• Day 1 . Inj Lupride, 0.2 ml sc. ( Downregulation starts)Day 2 . Inj Lupride, 0.2 ml sc.Day 3 .

Inj Menogon ( 75 IU), 4 amp IMDay 10 . Inj Lupride, 0.2 ml sc. Inj Menogon ( 75 IU), 4 amp IM.Vaginal ultrasound scan to monitor follicular growthThe Lupride and Menogon injections will continue on a daily basis;and scans will be performed every alternate day, until the follicles are mature.This is usually Day 14- Day 16 for most patients. At this time, an HCG injection will be given, and eggs retrieved 36 hours after this.Embryo transfer is performed 3 days later; and supernumerary embryos, if any, are cryopreserved.After the transfer, luteal phase support is provided with daily Progynova ( estradiol valerate2 mg, 3 tab daily; and Uterogestan ( 200 mg), 6 vaginalsuppositories daily.You can travel back 3 days after the embryo transfer.14 days after the transfer, you need to do a blood test for beta HCG to confirm a pregnancy
  7. 7. IVF COSTWhat Does IVF Cost?The average cost for IVF is $12,000, but this can vary depending,on what technologies are being used. IVF with egg donation is the most costly, withone cycle being anywhere from $25,000 to $30,000.

  11. 11. INDIA IVF MARKET OVERVIEWIndia has a large population of 1.22 Billion peopleand infertility in the country is rising at a rapid rate(about 30 Million couples suffer from infertility).Infertility or the inability to have children refers to a range of disorders some of which affect the male, and some the female, and contribute to childlessness in a couple.There is also something called unexplained infertility, where doctors are unable to provide a medical explanation for the couple’s inability to conceive.
  12. 12. INDIA IVF MARKET POTENTIALIn India, approximately 15% - 20% of married couples in their fertile age group,suffer from infertility and it is on the increase because of urbanization, pollution, chemicalexposure, stress, competitive work environment, fast-paced lifestyles, late settlement in life,more women opting to work, increased incidence of diabetes, pelvic inflammatory diseases, etc.Today, arrays of treatment options to treat infertility are readily available in India.These include medications for ovulation induction; endoscopic surgery to correct anatomicalproblems; and the assisted reproductive technologies, including IUI, IVF, and ICSI (intracytoplasmic sperm injection).India has become one of the favored destinations for infertility treatments such as IVF due toseveral factors including its medical expertise, state-of-the-art technology (which is at par withthe best in the world), and a cost-effective health care system.

Awareness about Investment & Foreign Collaboration of Indian players
  24. 24. RECOMMENDATION & SUGGESTIONSThe most important economic issues in contemporary ART markets are:1) Access to treatment2) Treatment success, as measured through birth rates and multiple birth rates.These issues of access and quality are also the central concerns for Indian health care markets ingeneral.• Across the medical sector of the economy and in IVF markets in particular,it has been suggested that altering the competitive structure of markets or the extent ofinsurance coverage can improve both access to care and quality.• In the market for infertility treatment, mandatory insurance coverage is predicted to bring new patients into the market and reduce the incentive to transfer a dangerously high number of embryos during treatment, thereby increasing the quality of care.• While price reducing competition is likely to improve access to IVF, there exist concerns thatcompeting clinics will attempt to win new patients by inflating birthrates using treatments thatalso raise the risk of multiple births.
  25. 25. RECOMMENDATION & SUGGESTIONS• However, concerns about quality-reducing competition may be incorrect, and in fact additional competition can decrease multiple birth rates by reducing patients’ incentive to seek aggressive treatment for their fertility problems. With the present paper we evaluate the impacts of both mandated insurance coverage and an increase in competition on ART access and treatment success rates.• We expect the use of IVF to continue to grow, as treatment expenses fall with competition and technological progress, and more women account for the possibility of ART while making related life cycle choices regarding education, career, and marriage.• Indeed, the changing economic environment of the late 21st century is likely to have shifted substantially the demand for infertility treatment services.• As women’s labor force participation rates and real wages have increased, couples have deferred the decision to have children
  26. 26. RECENT UPDATES/ REASERCH IN WORLD IVF MARKET• Cooper To Lead In Vitro Fertilization Market Following $189 Million Origio Acquisition ,Deal will boost Cooper’s share of the $220 million global IVF market from 7% to 39%.• Discovery of a Molecule That Initiates Maturation of Mammalian Eggs Can Lead to More IVF Pregnancies researchers at the University of Gothenburg have identified a molecule called Cdk1 that has an important function for mammalian egg maturation. In the future this could lead to an increased rate of successful IVF.This is the first functional evidence that Cdk1 is a key molecule in mammalian egg maturation. If the results can be translated into clinical settings, it could possibly improve the chances of successful IVF treatment for women who today are not becoming pregnant because their eggs do not mature" says Kui Liu, professor at the Department of Chemistry and Molecular Biology, the University of Gothenburg, Sweden.
  27. 27. RESEARCH IN WORLD IVF MARKET• A new technique successfully used in mice to identify embryos likely to result in a successful pregnancy could be used in humans, according to University scientists. The Cardiff scientists worked with a team in Oxford University to analyse the internal contents of the human egg or cytoplasm to observe distinct rhythmic patterns."Current IVF treatment involves fertilising eggs in the laboratory and then choosing those embryos considered to be the healthiest for implantation into the mothers womb, using selection criteria such as the number and appearance of cells produced during the division process," according to Professor Karl Swann, School of Medicine, who led the research.• New Method for Picking the Right Egg in IVF:• groundbreaking study,Yale School of Medicine researchers and colleagues at the University of Oxford have identified the chromosomal make-up of a human egg. This discovery may soon allow them to avoid using abnormal -- or aneuploid -- eggs during infertility treatments, and instead to pick eggs that are healthy enough for a successful in vitro fertilization (IVF) cycle.• "This finding opens up the possibility of a safe, effective, and inexpensive way of identifying healthy eggs, potentially lowering the risks of miscarriage and Down syndrome," said Wells. "By conducting these tests before eggs are fertilized, ethical concerns about analysis of human embryos are avoided."
  28. 28. FUTURE OF INFERTILITY TRATMENTThe development of techniques to prolong the window of fertility for women has the ability to meet the needs of future populations and their delay in childbearing.With current techniques of cryopreservation of embryos, oocytes, or ovarian tissue, prolongation of fertility with varying success is feasible.In the future, rejuvenation of aging oocytes will offer the opportunity for the aging women to achieve pregnancy with their own genetic offspring.Production of germ cells from embryonic stem cells is another alternative for patient with poor or depleted germ cells.Better understanding of the cause of infertility can be achieved with new techniques to evaluate the oocytes, spermatozoa, and embryos on molecular and genetic levels.With improved understanding of the etiology of infertility, treatment will be more effective.With the advance of new drugs and surgical equipment, treatment of infertility will become more convenient and effective.
