Abstract

This study is designed to investigate the impact of DNA damage on pregnancy and fertilization rate outcome in a sub-sample of women undergoing IVF treatment. Blood and follicular fluid samples (n = 60) were analyzed for DNA adducts. While no BPDE-DNA adducts were detected, other unknown lipophilic adducts were seen in blood and follicular fluid. Women who failed to achieve pregnancy had higher DNA adducts in follicular fluid than those who succeeded (p < 0.05). Follicular fluid cotinine levels were associated with DNA adduct levels in blood and follicular fluid (p < 0.05). Evaluation of DNA damage resulting from oxidative stress could have a role in predicting IVF success rate. © 2009 Springer Science+Business Media, LLC.
