Scientific Publications

My Egg Bank and Reproductive Biology Associates demonstrated its leadership in the development of groundbreaking infertility treatment research at the annual meetings of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM). Multiple presentations authored by the scientific team were accepted and all were very well received by our peers.

The predominant focus of the science presented was our ongoing success with egg freezing, a technology RBA has been at the forefront of for over a decade. RBA Scientific Director, Dr. Zsolt Peter Nagy, said "My Egg Bank continues to produce some of the best success rates in the world from our unique egg freezing protocol. The technology has enhanced the care of our IVF patients, women seeking to preserve their fertility, and patients utilizing our frozen donor egg bank".
