COLLECTION. Spotlight Articles from ESHRE in 2019 
We asked the Editors of the ESHRE journals to review the articles published in 2019 and pick out a selection of articles they wish to highlight for the year as worthy of a second look. We’ve made these articles free for you to enjoy until the end of March 2020.
MicroRNAs in combined spent culture media and sperm are associated with embryo quality and pregnancy outcome 
Conclusion(s) miRNA abundance levels in combined SCM and sperm differed significantly depending on embryo quality and pregnancy outcome. MiR-19b-3p may serve as a potential biomarker to predict pregnancy outcome.
Association between blood lipid level and embryo quality during in vitro fertilization 
TG, TC, LDL, and Lp(b) levels had negative correlation with embryo quality, while HDL and Lp(a) had positive correlation with the embryo quality. Our present findings showed blood lipid levels may provide certain reference for the prediction of IVF pregnancy outcome.
Thus, GnRHa trigger already has a pivotal role, not only for the standard in vitro fertilisation (IVF) patient, but also for patient groups like oocyte donors, cancer patients, patients with poor ovarian reserve, and patients with immature oocyte syndrome and empty follicle syndrome. Herein, we discuss the importance of the GnRHa-elicited midcycle FSH surge and the potential improvement in oocyte yield and embryo competence.
Optimizing the protocol for vitrification of individual spermatozoa by adjusting equilibration time 
Post-thaw motility correlated negatively with cryoprotectant exposure time. The highest post-warming motility rate (32.1%) was observed with 8-minutes equilibration. After 10 minutes, motility rate of vitrified sperm was lower than that of bulk-freezing (31.7% x37.0%). Different cryoprotectants did not affect the results. Therefore, for vitrifying small numbers of spermatozoa, we suggest maximum equilibration time of 8-minutes to achieve maximum
Sex and suicide: The curious case of Toll-like receptors [Murine] 
During in vitro fertilisation (IVF), pharmacological activation of the murine X chromosome–encoded receptor proteins Toll-like receptor (TLR) 7 and TLR8 reportedly results in male-biased litters by selectively disrupting the motility of X-bearing sperm cells
Effects of the normal sperm morphology rate on the clinical and neonatal outcomes of conventional IVF cycles 
Total fertilisation failure was completely resolved by early rescue intracytoplasmic sperm injection. The clinical pregnancy, implantation and abortion rates were not significantly different between the two groups. Additionally, the sex, preterm birth, low birth weight, live births and birth defect rates, gestational age and birthweight of newborns were not significantly different between the two groups. Thus, normal sperm morphology rate <4% sig
Blastocysts Derived From 0PN Oocytes: Genetic And Clinical Results. 
CONCLUSION: Almost half of the 0PN blastocysts implanted (48.0%) and 13 healthy babies were born. More than three quarters (76.4%) of the 0PN blastocysts were diploid, thus ruling out the possibility of parthenogenetic activation. Our study indicated that the transfer of 0PN blastocysts is a safe, worthy option when the number of normal 2PN embryos is insufficient.
Statement of the COVID-19 FSA Response Committee (19 March 2020) 
With these recommendations, the FSA aims to provide its members (which include clinicians, scientists, nurses and counsellors) and the public evidence-based guidance that prioritises the needs and safety of patients and all staff involved in the provision of fertility care and is in line with the Australian Health Sector Emergency Response Plan for Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19).
