EmbryoGlue imitates the uterine environment at the time of the implantation. It is not glue in the true sense of the word, but its function is similar to the function of glue because it increases the chance of implanting the embryo in the uterus.
EmbryoGlue is enriched with saccharides and amino acids that support the embryo during the transfer and implantation period. EmbryoGlue contains hyaluronan which is a natural substance commonly found in all tissues of the human body. Its concentration in the uterus at the time of the implantation increases and the uterine wall and embryo contain receptors for its molecule. It is believed that hyaluronan in EmbryoGlue establishes a connection between the embryo and the uterus.
Who should use EmbryoGlue?
EmbryoGlue® brings along benefits for all patients who undergo the embryo transfer in the course of assisted reproduction. An independent research institute, the Cochrane Collaboration, evaluated all publications of increased level of hyaluronan on the level of implantation during embryo transfer. They concluded that the results are better than those for transfers without hyaluronan. EmbryoGlue® is the only available product that is enriched with hyaluronan.
