IVI Increases its Investment in Research to 6 Million

Each of the clinics that make up IVI RMA’s worldwide network (more than 65 clinics) is likely to pursue one or more of the lines of research currently open within the group. However, there are several specific locations for research such as Basking Ridge (New Jersey, USA), Madrid, Valencia, and Oxford. The fertility multinational increased its turnover by more than 36% in 2021 compared to 2020, to €387 million.

Research is the key to development. The Valencian Fertility Institute (IVI RMA) has raised its investment in research to €6 million, which means quadrupling the figure reached five years ago, as explained by Nicolás Garrido, director of the IVI Foundation.

The head of the company specializing in assisted reproduction comments that the group currently has 400 active research projects, initiatives that are supervised by a scientific committee made up of Juan García, chief scientific officer of IVI RMA; Nicolás Garrido; Antonio Pellicer, CEO of the company; Richard Scott, founding partner of IVI RMA; Emre Seli, director of research in the United States; and Dagan Wells, director of research in Oxford.

Garrido comments that one of the main lines of research in which the group is working is that of advanced age and ovarian rejuvenation. The scientific team at IVI RMA focuses its research on identifying new treatment strategies that can activate primordial follicles in patients with advanced reproductive aging.

IVI RMA is working on defining methylation profiles with respect to gametes and embryos prior to implantation

Another line of research concerns male infertility. The male factor is one of those responsible for fertility problems in 20% of couples and contributes in 30% to 40% of cases, according to IVI RMA.

IVIR MA researchers are also designing strategies to define methylation profiles with respect to gametes and embryos prior to implantation, with the aim of identifying abnormalities associated with failures in embryo generation and during implantation. In addition, the professionals are conducting projects to determine methylation levels in somatic cells and identify early and subtle signs of reproductive aging.

The company’s scientific team has launched several studies in different fields of reproduction using stem cells. The first data obtained in a prospective study of patients with Asherman’s syndrome (with a severely damaged uterine cavity) or endometrial atrophy (problems during endometrial growth) suggest that endometrial growth can be improved and tissue damage reduced by transplanting stem cells from bone marrow.

The company had a turnover of more than €380 million in 2021, raising turnover by 36% compared to 2020
