Yesterday, a report was published by the Medical Journal of Australia on Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) success rates from the Australian and New Zealand Assisted Reproduction Database (ANZARD). The results of the study recommend clinicians provide patients with success rates based on complete ovarian stimulation cycles and not per individual fresh/frozen cycle attempt. It also suggests that clinicians advise women on their chance of a live birth based on having numerous stimulated cycles and not just her chance of success based on one individual cycle attempt.
Associate Professor Mark Bowman, Medical Director of Genea, acknowledged the study's publication but noted that significant issues remain.
"Whilst the study provides a reflection of overall national data, consumers will still have difficulty determining which unit they should attend," he said.
"International studies suggest that the cumulative success rate of many of the patient groups should be higher than what is published in the MJA report and recent overseas data also suggests that there are significant differences, for example in the genetic quality of IVF embryos, depending on which medical and laboratory processes were used within IVF treatment," he added.
There is a variation in technology offered and subsequently success rates achieved between clinics and this data as published does not provide the public with this information. Genea believes this data should be available to all patients seeking fertility treatment.
Assoc. Prof Bowman said, "The Fertility Society of Australia has given a commitment to the ACCC that they will ensure understandable, responsible and accurate reporting of success rates and it is beholden upon our Society to see this process to a point where consumers can make better definitive choices about which clinic they might attend."
Genea Scientific Director Steven McArthur supported Assoc. Prof Bowman stating, "Genea does not believe fertility offerings are ubiquitous and patients' chances of success vary greatly between clinics." Mr McArthur added; "The recommendation published in the report suggesting that clinicians advise women on their chance of a live birth based on having numerous stimulated cycles does not hold clinics accountable for getting patients pregnant in the least number of stimulated cycles. At Genea, we maximize patients' chances of having a baby in the least number of cycles by using leading science and our results reflect this."
