NEEDS ASSESSMENT AND DESCRIPTION
Only a tiny fraction of the ovarian primordial follicles present at birth will survive to mature and ovulate. This pool of follicles is the ovarian reserve. In theory, snapshots of ovarian reserve over time might indicate a woman’s maximum reproductive potential and the time remaining until menopause, with critical implications for women’s fertility and overall health. However, the biomarkers of ovarian reserve that are currently available are not adequate to make such predictions. This live conference of reproductive medicine physicians and reproductive biologists will address current questions surrounding ovarian reserve: How is the follicle pool established and regulated? What is the state-of-the-science for the measurement of ovarian reserve, and can we develop robust predictive measurements? What are the possible clinical implications of measures of ovarian reserve? How do reproductive or systemic diseases and their treatment affect ovarian reserve? What is the future of science in the realm of ovarian reserve, in terms of measurement, clinical implications, and potential for manipulation?
At the conclusion of this conference, participants should be able to:
- Describe the establishment and regulation of the primordial follicle pool.
- Critically assess biomarkers of and methods to estimate ovarian reserve.
- Discuss the implications of diminished ovarian reserve to a woman’s health and fertility.
- Speculate on how might advances in gene profiling and stem cell biology extend or restore fertility in aging or disease states.
