ESTEEM - the ESHRE study into the evaluation of oocyte euploidy by microarray analysis

ESTEEM will be the first randomised trial of 23 chromosome testing of polar bodies using array CGH. The pilot study showed that reliable identification of the chromosomal status of an oocyte is possible in about 90% of polar body biopsy attempts.
The study, now known as ESTEEM (the ESHRE Study into The Evaluation of oocyte Euploidy by Microarray analysis), which will be performed in women aged between 36 and 41 years, has two primary aims: to estimate the likelihood of having no euploid embryos in future ART cycles and to improve live birth rates in women of advanced maternal age.
