New Hope Fertility Clinic is conducting the first IVF clinical trial to offer patients assisted reproduction treatment with the costs of the procedures included. This means that we cover all medical consulting, blood tests, ultrasound monitoring, IVF procedures and IVF-related medications. Candidates are only responsible for the cost associated with any required pre-screening testing to confirm eligibility. We are enrolling woman between the ages of 18 and 38, who have experienced difficulty conceiving for more than 12 months with no previous IVF attempts.
We recently came across a post on the fertility discussion forum “FertileThoughts.com”: (http://www.fertilethoughts.com/forums/financing-your-ivf/698395-new-york-new-hope.html)… from a woman who had been struggling with infertility came across our clinical trials site (ivfclinicaltrial.com) wrote about her excitement to find:
“…a clinical trial in NYC with the cost of drugs and treatment included…this is for real, I was accepted into the program and had my 1st embryo transfer 11/14 the only cost to me was the trains in and out of the city… if you live in the metro area it is worth looking into and taking the quiz… ivfclinicaltrial.com. Good luck and baby dust to all TTC!!!”
Thanks for the effusive post, and this clinical trial is, in fact, for real. The trial is being run at New Hope in collaboration with the center for Reproductive Medicine at the University of Amsterdam. The trial is designed to compare conventional IVF protocol and minimal-stimulation IVF protocols (Mini IVF™), in terms of both pregnancy rates and treatment costs. Additionally, the study will seek to determine which of the two methods is more patient-friendly by comparing the psychological impact of these two types of IVF treatments, as well as the side effects of medications required by the respective protocols. As each cycle is slightly different, doctors constantly review cycles to fine tune the protocol for each patient, individually, going forward.
The study has been approved and is being monitored by the Human Research Review Committee of the New York Downtown Hospital. We were particularly concerned with making the study as universally applicable as possible, and in order to include a broad representation of infertile patients and couples in the study, we made the clinical trials as financially accessible as possible. We welcome anyone who thinks they might be eligible to take our test: http://ivfclinicaltrial.com/prescreeningquiz.aspx.
