CLOSED - LutrePulse Hypogonadotropic Hypogonadism Clinical Research Study

Reproductive Associates of Delaware is participating in the LutrePulse Clinical Research Study. The study is evaluating the ovulation rate in women after receiving an investigational pulsatile gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) medication. The study requires patients that meet the following criteria.

  • You are a woman 18-40 years old
  • You have a clinical history or were recently diagnosed with primary amenorrhea with hypogonadotropic hypogonadism

If you are interested in learning more about the LutrePulse Hypogonadotropic Hypogonadism Clinical Research Study, please contact Mark Modelski at (302) 602-8779 or email at mmodelski@radfertility.com.

CLOSED - AMH Study

RAD is currently seeking patients to participate in a research study by donating a blood sample that will help evaluate a test that measures Anti-Müllerian hormone (AMH). AMH is a naturally occurring hormone found in both men and women. In women, AMH, is related to the reproductive cycle and the ability to get pregnant, and may help identify women who may have problems getting pregnant because of poor ovarian response.

Eligible participants will be compensated as a result of their volunteer participation in this study.

If you are currently planning to undergo your 1st, 2nd, or 3rd cycle of ovarian stimulation for IVF, you may be eligible to participate in this research study if you meet the following eligibility:

  • You are between the ages of 21 and 45 years old.
  • You have regular menstual cycles (between 21 and 35 days).
  • You have both of your ovaries.
  • You are not currently on oral contraceptives.
  • You do not have confirmed PCOS.
  • You have not had any ovarian surgery within the last year.
  • You have not recently had drug or radiation treatment for cancer.
  • You are not currently pregnant
  • You are willing to provide a blood sample according to the research study.
