In an attempt to assess the effect of perfluorinated compounds (PFC) on oocytes quality and fertilization rate, we studied follicular fluid (FF) PFC levels in 18 patients undergoing IVF-ET cycles. A significant correlation (R∈=∈0.75; P∈<∈0.001) was observed between FF PFC levels and fertilization rate.

Abstract

In an attempt to assess the effect of perfluorinated compounds (PFC) on oocytes quality and fertilization rate, we studied follicular fluid (FF) PFC levels in 18 patients undergoing IVF-ET cycles. A significant correlation (R∈=∈0.75; P∈<∈0.001) was observed between FF PFC levels and fertilization rate. Moreover, patients with FF PFC contamination had significantly lower fertilization rate (p∈<∈0.02) and number of embryos transferred (p∈<∈0.02), compared to the PFC negative group. © 2011 Springer Science+Business Media, LLC.
