New pre-IVF treatment calculator predicts odds of having a baby

New pre-IVF treatment calculator predicts odds of having a baby

A team of British researchers claimed to have developed a pre-treatment calculator that allows couples see their chances of success with in vitro fertilization (IVF) even before completion of the first cycle of treatment.

Traditionally, doctors have been reluctant to estimate a woman’s odds of having a baby before she completes at least one cycle of IVF. But the new calculator allows women to get an estimate of their odds before IIVF’s first cycle.

A quick look at the disease of prostate cancer

Prostate cancer, a disease that mostly affects elderly males, is luckily one of the slowest growing cancers to date. Nevertheless, as many as 209,000 U.S. men are diagnosed with the disease per year.

Prostate cancer often has no symptoms in the early stage, and the most vulnerable men are normally 65 years and older.

Speaking about the disease, Oncologist Charles Smith said, “A disease that we are very optimistic about when the diagnosis is made. We can't always unfortunately say that about a lot of cancers, but with this disease we do feel optimistic about treatment.”
