Big Things in Baltimore

Once again RMANJ was well represented at this year’s American Society of Reproductive Medicine in Baltimore, MD held October 17th-21st.

With well-over 20 abstracts accepted this year, RMANJ continued to raise the bar across a number of clinical and scientific issues impacting our field of medicine. “On an annual basis our entire team conducts and presents more translational research than many other local programs do combined. I’m extremely proud of what everyone here at RMANJ does every day to lead the way for our field and help our hopeful parents” offered Dr. Scott.

Dr. Werner who presented on next generation sequencing (NGS) for comprehensive chromosome screening (CCS) was awarded the ASRM Corporate Member Council In-training Travel Grant for her research. Other research presented by Dr. Werner titled “One vs. Two: Patient Perspectives on Elective Single Embryo Transfer (eSET), was featured in our ASRM media release and picked-up by over 300 media outlets and websites including Reuters, Marketwatch, and New York Business Journal.

Not to rest on our laurels, the RMANJ team is already hard at work on research and presentations for next year’s meeting of the ASRM in Salt Lake City, UT.

Dr. Max Gomez Makes a House Call in Basking Ridge

The NY media has taken notice yet again of RMANJ! Early this month Dr. Max Gomez from WCBS-TV (Ch2) visited Basking Ridge to do a story about our single gene screening capabilities for IVF. The story which featured the Colluzzi Family was a heartwarming piece that supports our mission not to just get a patient pregnant but to help them have healthier kids.

Dr. Thomas Kim, who treated the couple commented on the case, “Their first born was unfortunately diagnosed with chronic granulomatous disease (CGD) within a few months after he was born. The Colluzzi’s wanted another child but also wanted to avoid the risk of CGD. Thanks to the team at the Foundation for Embryonic Competence (FEC), we were able to help this couple screen their embryos and have a healthy little girl born just a few months ago. But it gets better; her cord blood now provides a potential cure for their first child with CGD. He’ll undergo a bone marrow transplant in the near future.” We all wish the Colluzzi family their very best!

The Colluzzi Family’s story aired early this month on WCBS-TV (Ch2). If you happened to miss it you can check it out here, or watch it on our Facebook and Twitter page.

Participate in a New Study at RMA

To participate in this NEW trail takes less than a minute! The CAREs Trail was designed to help practitioners better understand the prevalence of celiac disease in our patient population and to determine if there is any impact on IVF outcomes for those patients who are affected. 

If you're between the ages of 18-45, undergoing IVF treatment, and interested in receiving FREE celiac screening, ask your nurse or doctor about the CAREs Trial. Contact the Clinical Research Team for more information, or (973) 656-2841. | (973) 656-2089
