Antimullerian hormone (AMH)

Antimullerian hormone (AMH) efficiency curves: Predicting a threshold for pregnancy in in vitro fertilization (IVF) cycles

 

Antimullerian hormone (AMH) is a protein secreted by small follicles of the ovary.  It is one of the best markers of ovarian reserve available.  But its ability to predict the likelihood of pregnancy in an IVF cycle is less well understood.  We are currently conducting research by analyzing data to help determine if there is an AMH cutoff below which IVF is not a viable option for treatment.

 

AMH and IVF

Along these lines, we have presented data at the American Society for Reproductive Medicine national meeting demonstrating IVF pregnancy rates based on a woman's AMH level.  Furthermore, we have calculated "efficiency curves" with this data in order to predict the likelihood of achieving pregnancy from IVF at any given AMH level.  This study is ongoing.
