Textbook of Clinical Embryology by Kewin coward
Worldwide, over 1 million ART cycles are carried out each year and over 5 million babies are estimated to have been born as a direct consequence. There is no doubt that ART represents one of the most successful interventions in
any field of medicine. It has radically altered the way in which most forms of infertility are treated and bought
hope to millions of infertile and sub-fertile couples around the world. However, it must be acknowledged
that, despite the obvious successes, significant technical challenges still remain and scientific knowledge in some
areas of clinical embryology is limited
The success of Assisted Reproductive Technology is critically dependent upon the use of well optimized protocols, based upon sound scientific reasoning, empirical observations and evidence of clinical efficacy. Recently, the treatment of infertility has experienced a revolution, with the routine adoption of increasingly specialized molecular biological techniques and advanced methods for the manipulation of gametes and embryos.
The Textbook of Clinical Embryology by Kewin coward – inspired by the postgraduate degree program at the University of Oxford – guides students through the multidisciplinary syllabus essential to ART laboratory practice, from basic culture techniques and micromanipulation to laboratory management and quality assurance, and from endocrinology to molecular biology and research methods.
Written for all levels of IVF practitioners, reproductive biologists and technologists involved in human reproductive science, it can be used as a reference manual for all IVF labs and as a textbook by undergraduates, advanced students, scientists and professionals involved in gamete, embryo or stem cell biology.Textbook of Clinical Embryology by Kewin coward is useful for the students who are appearing for the usmle , mrcp ,dnb and also for students appearing for the entrance exams
It is equally vital that established doctors, nurses and embryologists constantly refresh their store of knowledge, keeping abreast of changes in the regulatory environment and understanding the benefits and limitations of new technologies – what is proven and what is, at least for the time being, hypothesis or conjecture.
