Abstract


Oxidative stress in the follicular fluid (FF) is thought to be responsible for the abnormal development of oocytes. In our study patients with polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), endometriosis, and tubal infertility factor (TIF), and healthy women with a male factor of infertility, were prospectively enrolled. From each patient, a sample of individual FF was collected from a dominant follicle. Concentration levels of TAS, 8-IP, 8-OHdG, and AMH were determined.

In women with PCOS, we found significantly lower values of oxidative stress markers in the FF. 8-IP and TAS levels were lower in the FF of women with endometriosis. In women with TIF, we also found significantly lower values of all tested markers in the FF, except for 8-OHdG and AMH. We wanted to see whether the biomarker measured in the FF in an individual diagnosis could predict a successfully obtained embryo from this particular follicle. The FF 8-OHdG result in PCOS patients stood out and proved to be a good predictive marker of matured and fertilized oocytes in these patients. Further research is needed to be able to apply the acquired knowledge in improving the outcome of IVF procedures.
