About the Study

Our new lab test uses a small piece of your own tissue taken during a regular IVF procedure. Taking advantage of recent progress in stem cell research, we will study if the Simbryo test can check how ready your body is for an embryo to attach and grow. This research will show if this test can give individual predictions and treatments to improve the chances of getting pregnant after in vitro fertilization (IVF).

There are no costs of participation in the research.

Participants will be paid up to $500 for study participation.

What is a Clinical Study?

Clinical studies show us what is effective in medicine and health care. In a clinical study, volunteers help researchers look at new ways to prevent, detect, or treat conditions. They take place in doctors’ offices, medical centers, community hospitals and clinics, and veterans’ hospitals around the world.

Before a treatment can be approved for everyday use and made accessible to most patients, the U.S. FDA requires that a potential therapy’s safety and efficacy be evaluated in clinical studies. Clinical studies do not just study new drugs — they also help improve treatments already given to patients. 

Who Can Participate?

You may be eligible to participate in the Simbryo Embryo Transfer study if you are/have:

  • Women aged 18 years of age or older
  • Have had at least 5 previous embryo transfer failures with euploid embryos
  • Do not have any blood borne communicable diseases
  • Actively trying to get pregnant via IVF

Study sites are in Texas (Houston, Austin, and San Antonio). We can also collaborate with your personal physician to supply a sample collection kit, allowing them to conduct the procedure.

What Should I Expect?

Clinical Procedures:
A biopsy (a simple in-office collection of tissue, taking just a few minutes) of your endometrium will be obtained by your doctor using a small pipelle. Leftover tissue from this biopsied sample will be de-identified and transferred to Simbryo Technologies for research.

Research Procedures:
Researchers at Simbryo will use your sample to help develop a test for endometrial receptivity. Additional testing of the sample such as sequencing and microbiome testing may also be performed. Medical information such as your fertility history and the outcome of your embryo transfer will be provided to Simbryo Technologies in a strictly anonymous fashion.

If you are interested in learning more about the Simbryo Embryo Transfer Study and if it may be a good fit for you, please submit the short questionnaire. The answers you submit will be used for study purposes only.

Once you submit the form, a member from our team will reach out to you and connect you with a member of the research team if it seems you may qualify for this study.

Please note that answering these questions does not obligate you to participate in the study. If you have any questions, simply email [email protected] or call 1-888-874-2560.
