A total of 106 serum and 9 follicular fluid

According to Bloom, the study has implications for the design of future analysis examining follicular fluid
parameters as predictive markers of IVF success or failure.

Further tests showed that, in some cases, the bacteria had been transferred from the lower genital tract to the follicular fluid
during the medical procedure used to collect eggs known as transvaginal oocyte retrieval (TVOR).
In cattle the pre-ovulatory follicle contain high amounts of FSH, estrogen and IGF resulting in an increased concentration in follicular fluid
for maintenance of healthy oocytes and their survival (Kastelic et al.
We confirmed these findings and report high concentrations of KLK6 in CVF and traces of KLK6 in follicular fluid
, saliva, and urine.

Pesticide residues have been identified at concentrations of parts per trillion to parts per million in ovarian follicular fluid
In biological fluids, the highest concentrations were seen in seminal plasma, followed by amniotic fluid, breast milk, and follicular fluid
Given the findings above and the recent quantitation of a number of xenobiotics in human ovarian follicular fluid
(Younglai et al.
The biological fluids (amniotic fluid, breast milk, cerebrospinal fluid, follicular fluid
