11 Abstracts Featuring MiOXSYS have been Selected for Presentation at the 35th Annual Meeting of the European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology
ENGLEWOOD, CO / ACCESSWIRE / June 18, 2019 / Aytu BioScience, Inc. (NASDAQ: AYTU), a specialty pharmaceutical company focused on commercializing novel products that address significant patient needs, announced that multiple presentations highlighting the company's MiOXSYS® male infertility diagnostic system will be presented at the 35th Annual Meeting of the European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology (ESHRE). ESHRE will be held in Vienna, Austria from June 23-26, 2019, and members of the Aytu BioScience management team will be in attendance.
In total, 11 abstracts featuring MiOXSYS, and the system's diagnostic output oxidation-reduction potential (ORP), have been accepted for presentation at ESHRE and will be presented by leading researchers in andrology, urology, and reproductive medicine from around the world.
The following two showcase presentations will be the first to report on new fertilization data that further expands the clinical utility of the company's MiOXSYS System as an advanced tool aiding in the diagnosis of male infertility. The presentations will take place in the Haydn Room of the Messe Wien Exhibition & Congress Center on June 24, 2019.
Title: "Prediction of successful ICSI cycles by oxidation-reduction potential (ORP) and sperm DNA fragmentation (SDF) analysis. A prospective study"
Presenter: Aqeel Morris, BSc, Department of Medical Biosciences
Institution: University of Western Cape, Bellville, South Africa
Presentation Time: 10:15 am CET
Title: "Relationship between oxidative stress in semen and the fertilizing capacity of the sperm - Evidence from the conventional IVF model in couples with unexplained infertility"
Presenter: Hassan Sallam, MD, PhD, Professor in Obstetrics & Gynecology
Head of Alexandria Fertility & IVF Center
Institution: University of Alexandria, Alexandria, Egypt
Presentation Time: 5:00 pm CET
Josh Disbrow, Chief Executive Officer of Aytu BioScience, stated, "With the recent publication of ESHRE's Recurrent Pregnancy Loss and Multiple Miscarriage guidelines, there is broadening awareness of the importance of accurately identifying the cause of male infertility, in part, through the assessment of DNA damage and direct measurement of seminal oxidative stress. MiOXSYS, a CE marked diagnostic tool specifically measuring oxidative stress in semen, provides clinicians with a simple in-office test to quickly and accurately assess oxidative stress and help develop strategies to improve semen quality and male fertility."
Mr. Disbrow continued, "Prior to the introduction of the MiOXSYS System, there were limited standardized, and accurate options available to assess seminal oxidative stress, and none that could be practically used in an office-based clinical setting. We are, therefore, pleased to continue to advance the body of clinical and scientific evidence to support the expanding use of the MiOXSYS platform in office-based settings to enable broader clinical use around the world."
Additional ESHRE-selected presentations featuring MiOXSYS are being made by leading andrologists, urologists, and reproductive medicine experts from a broad base of research institutions and infertility clinics around the world, including:
- Cleveland Clinic, Cleveland, OH
- University of Antwerp, Antwerp, Belgium
- Medical University of Lublin, Lublin, Poland
- Centre Fertillia, Tunis, Tunisia
- Hamad Medical Corporation, Doha, Qatar
- University of Osaka, Osaka, Japan
The MiOXSYS System is currently in use in over thirty countries around the world and is CE Marked and cleared by Health Canada, the Australian Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA), and Mexico's COFEPRAS.
Selection of the abstracts for publication in this press release does not imply endorsement of the MiOXSYS System by ESHRE.
