British scientists have found that hyaluronic acid can increase the effectiveness of in vitro fertilization.
This substance is present in various body tissues, particularly in cartilage and skin. Hyaluronic acid is well known by those who use skin care products and visit cosmetologists as it is a constituent of many creams and preparations for injection procedures. However, as it turns out, compound useful properties are not limited only to these ones.
According to British embryologists, hyaluronic acid can be used in IVF programs facilitating penetration of spermatozoa into the egg. In the opinion of the researchers, the new technique will help increase the procedure effectiveness primarily of advanced age couples.
