Preserving Fertility in Young Women with Breast Cancer: Treatment Options

Dror Meirow

 

In this interview, the second in a series of conversations with global experts on fertility preservation in young women with breast cancer, Dror Meirow discusses the available options for fertility preservation. A number of approaches have been employed including embryo and oocyte cryopreservation, ovarian tissue cryopreservation, and ovarian suppression with gonadotropin-releasing hormone agonists. Storing ovarian tissue with a view to future re-implantation is an approach that Meirow pioneered in 2005 and in the interview he outlines the results that have been achieved using this approach and future advances in this important area for young women with breast cancer.
