The sterility worries many couples, so from the research is doing a constant work to give answers. The latest advances in this field refer more to diagnosis than treatment. In recent years, fields such as "omics" have been developed, which refer to genomics, proteomics and metabolomics.
In this sense, genetics and biochemistry play a fundamental role, since it involves identifying genes, proteins or metabolites that are involved in certain forms of sterility, both female (studying oocytes and endometrium), and male (analyzing sperm).
Know the causes of infertility
Abundant in the concept expressed previously, that is to say, advances refer more to diagnosis than to treatment, in the not too distant future the causes of many of the types of sterility that today are a mystery may be known.. For example, why there are sperm that are not able to fertilize, techniques that allow us to select fertile sperm, or, in the case of women, at which time it is appropriate to perform an embryo transfer according to the biochemical state of the endometrium, or which are the most suitable embryos to transfer.
