Staff at Pacific Fertility Center (PFC) have been invited to present an abstract on elective Single Embryo Transfer (eSET) at the 2014 Annual Meeting of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) in Honolulu on October 14, 2014. eSET is the practice of transferring a single embryo after in vitro fertilization, thereby reducing the risk of multiple births and potential complications.

Toward a program of single embryo transfer: Reducing multiple gestation risk using CCS” is the title of the abstract co-authored by Philip Chenette, MD, Isabelle Ryan, MD, Carolyn Givens, MD, Erin Fisher, MS, and Joe Conaghan, PhD—all staff at PFC.

On August 1st, 2012 Pacific Fertility Center opened the Pacific Fertility Egg Bank (PFEB), the first freestanding donor egg bank in northern California. The Pacific Fertility Egg Bank concept burgeoned in 2006 as a result of advancements in egg freezing technology. After much innovative work in the PFC Laboratory perfecting the freezing technique of 'vitrification', our first recipients of frozen donor eggs were pregnant in 2007 and delivered in 2008. Over the ensuing four years, additional research and refinement of laboratory techniques continued, resulting in the development of the Pacific Fertility Egg Bank.

Dr. Chenette was interviewed by Eggsurance, a website all about egg freezing. Dr. Chenette answers some key questions about egg freezing, such as what the optimal age is and how he thinks the future of egg freezing will be affected since ASRM has removed the "experimental" label from freezing eggs.
