A primary goal of the oocyte recovery technique is to maximize the total number of oocytes and the produce of high-quality oocytes recovered from each ovary (evenly granulated cytoplasm enclosed by numerous layers of dense CC), which can be used for IVM, IVF, and in-vitro culture (IVC) processes (Behbahanian et al., 2013).
In both type of olfactometer a control treatment (80 g IVM-free feces) and experimental treatment (80 g feces from animals treated with 1 % IVM) were used.

On the other hand, the coculture system in G1- and G2-PLUS media appeared to have detrimental effects on IVM (Figures 1(b) and 1(c)) compared to the effects of culture in stock media.
Many couples drop out from IVF treatment due to the physical and psychological burden of conventional ovarian stimulation, and therefore, IVM can provide for some couples a less intense option that avoids the bloating discomfort of conventional treatment.
This study evaluated the fate of IVM MII oocytes subjected to three different culture mediums with subsequent embryo growth.

Muestras de leche de vaca y oveja sin residuos del farmaco fueron fortificadas con IVM (1-10 ng/ml) y sometidas a tratamiento termico (pasteurizacion) a baja temperatura/largo tiempo (65[grados]C, 30 min, LTLT) o a alta temperatura/corto tiempo (75[grados]C, 15 s, HTST) en un bano termico de laboratorio.
Our assessment was based on information derived from two main sources: a) a qualitative external evaluation in May 2012 of IVM implementation at two different geographic locations in Kenya between 2006 and 2011 (ICIPE 2012), and b) an analysis of entomological and malaria case data collected by the two projects.
Immature oocyte collection in a mild IVF program is still controversial for many IVF specialists and the impact of IVM is decreased compared to conventional methods.
